ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The CD comes with a 32 page booklet including photos, lyrics and info! The booklet itself is a piece of art!
"Just for fun, I typed in the name of my favorite obscure musician (Daniel Lanois) to see who dared to claim that their music sounded like his. Surprise, five or six did. Most of them were just god-awful, but Andi Hoffmann and the B-Goes made up for all of them."
John Scalzi, MEDIA ONE

"It's not an exageration to say that "937 Dante Street" is the kind of record that folk rock legend Robbie Robertson tried to make a couple of years ago with "Storyville". This stuff has got soul - not to mention sterling production and classy deluxe package design."
R.C. Gambit New Orleans 1996

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.
