Description

Basil for Nino on CD

The CD comes in a special designed card board box and includes photo and lyric cards! ' 'Basil For Nino' hints at what the Cowboy Junkies might sound like with a male lead singer. The album quivers with a Daniel Lanois-like ambiance.' TIMES PICAYUNE, New Orleans (LA) 'You walk away feeling your life has been enriched spiritually and emotionally' MUSIKMAN, internet mag Singer/songwriter/auteur Andi Hoffmann is at root a romantic poet who continues to create rich lyrical compostions in a style best expressed as 'organic rock.' Born and raised in Switzerland, now making his home in New Orleans, Louisiana, Hoffmann along with his Kaleidoscopically eclectic band, The B-Goes, plays songs that are in turn sweet, melancholy, fun, funky, angry, and ethereal. On his most recent CD 'Living in The Big Wide World', Hoffmann's music takes some surprising turns. Here alongside the roots rock and zen-alpine soundscapes featured on previous recordings, The B-Goes expand into a dizzying array of styles--cajun, calypso, reggae, swamp pop, hip-hop, and hi-life. The result is a fascinating CD full of exotic hybrid songs offering artistically fertile settings for Hoffmann's worldly-wise storytelling, his unique instrumentation ideas, and The B-Goes' exquisite vocal harmonies. Yet even beyond crafting creative new musical formulas, Hoffmann displays a deepening awareness of the greater ties that bind us all, embracing the passion of a political vision based on the peace philosophies of Gandhi and Martin Luther King.
