Album Notes
“In a slightly better world, everyone would play in a band. In a much, much better world, we would all sound like the Bossa Nova Beatniks. It's amazing that it works, but it does. The group brings energy, skill and humor to almost every style they attempt. It's the kind of band you always hope is playing down at the local tavern on Saturday nights.”
Jennifer Kelly Splendid E-zine

“Describing themselves as ‘one of the most unique and original bands in New York’ BNB certainly live up to that description. Bandleader Tom Gould's songs often have an indefinable quality, bouncing from pop to jazz to world rhythms - sometimes within a single song. Constantly re-inventing themselves, the Bossa Nova Beatniks are a very dynamic live act as well. Expect a wide range of emotions and rhythms to flood from the stage.” SAM ASH website

"Music for all times and all countries." Dragan Stajic - The "Balkan"(Yugoslavia's national newspaper)

“Gould's songwriting has grown better and better, and his band seems to be able to reinvent itself with every new record.” Kevin Amorim - New York Newsday

"The Bossa Nova Beatniks turn the lilt of tropical island music into an idiosyncratic mélange fit for the edgiest downtown club." Joshua Tanzer -

"Smart, seductive songs in the best possible light" Aiding and Abetting E-zine

"Smokey gruff cool...swaggering” Mike Breen - Cincinnati City Beat

“Intoxicating vibe. The grooves are undeniably infectious in a detached dreamy way, while Gould's lyrics have an escapist quality ready to bring coconut-scented relief to all.” Ian D'Giff - New York Newsday

“As always, regardless of the players, vintage or source of the material, you'll find Tom Gould and his friends having fun playing music, and as always, you'll have fun listening to it.” Shaun Dale - Cosmic Debris E-zine

The Bossa Nova Beatniks went underground into the studio. Four and a half years and three CD’s later they came up for air to play the stage of CBGB on the Bowery in Manhattan. The Beatniks booked the night and invited Jerry Dugger, Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors, and Sputniks Down to share the stage. It was a great night. These recordings capture some of the big fun had that evening.
