ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In September of 2011, Jerry Dugger was inducted into
the New York Blues Hall of Fame.

Tom & Jerry team up on “Dugger sings Gould” with the Bossa Nova Beatniks
for an eclectic collection of Gould penned songs.

Shaun Dale of Cosmik Debris had this to say:
“Another step in the evolution of indie impresario Tom Gould's Bossa Nova Beatniks
empire. An extremely positive step.
Gould is the producer, engineer, writer and player (bass, guitar and vibes) whose
presence will be immediately detected by fans of his eclectic and energetic approach to
melodic world pop, but it's a particular mark of his genius that he recruited Dugger to
handle the vocal chores. Dugger's rich baritone finds just the right way to frame every one
of Gould's offerings, which range from ska to pop ballads to swing to roadhouse blues to,
well, there doesn't seem to be anything Gould won't try,
and no place he'll go where Dugger can't keep up.
They make an irresistible team.”

Gould enlisted the talents of Sparlha Swa on back up vocals. Sparlha recently made
an impressive debut helping to bring FELA to Broadway. The New York Times
called Sparlha “Smashing.” John Simon wrote in Bloomburg News,
“the personification of sexy femininity, Sparlha Swa sings and moves to perfection.”

Official Release date is October 30, 2012.

Rootstime Radio

a wonderfully uncomplicated and relaxing CD that we often will certainly continu
The second CD, "Dugger Sings Gould" is of a very different sort. It is the result of a musical collaboration between Tom & Jerry in 2013. The 'Tom' is the previously mentioned Tom Gould of the Bossa Nova Beatniks and 'Jerry' is the September 2011 inductee in New York Blues Hall Of Fame Blues-and Ska legend Jerry Dugger (of The Dugger Brothers and The Harlem Blues Project'). Tom Gould wrote ten songs for Jerry Dugger, produced this record and also played bass guitar on all the songs.
With the opening track "Papa La Ska," Jerry Dugger gets a well-deserved musical introduction. Then he brings "Swing Street" and "Bad Little Baby" in a rather bluesy roots version. The song "She's Askin' Bout You”' is a catchy Doo-Wop pop song. The accordion sounds by Radoslav Lorkovic color the beautiful song "Behave Yourself." "Zantee Misfits" is formed by pure, swinging guitars Rock 'n' Roll. The signature Bossa Nova Beatnik sound is most present in the calypso and reggae songs "Lighten Up" and "Melinda" in which the talented, Sparlha Swa, handsome young singer, sings along with Jerry Dugger. Dugger’s baritone voice finds its proper place might be the strongest in the sober, but very powerful number "I Do Love You".
The listener can hear the mutual respect between Tom Gould and Jerry Dugger in every song on this record. Both friends have delivered with "Dugger Sings Gould," a wonderfully uncomplicated and relaxing CD that we often will certainly continue through the speakers.

He's havin' fun. Join him!
I'm so glad I bought this. It's cool, it's smooth, and it goes to unexpected places. The track called Lighten Up is a miniature vacation. You won't regret adding this to your collection.

Original cool pleasant cd, quite different from what you are used to listen
Jerry Dugger is one of those nice New York guys who shows a natural friendly personality. His songs are pleasant, full of swing and melodic sense. He offers us a varied range of songs where you will find blues, reggae, gospel, bluessy ballads and some calypso and rockabilly drops but, specially, lots of fun. The cd is a peculiar cocktail of well dosed tidy songs built over an excellent vocal basis of a six voices choir who tastefully combine good harmonies among different songs included on this cd. You will find on the band drums, bass, rack’O’percussion, guitar, keyboards and trombone. As you may imagine it is an original cool pleasant cd, quite different from what you are used to listen, performed by a bright intelligent musician with lots of new ideas and proposals to be taken into account. VERY GOOD.

Shaun Dale - Cosmik Debris

An extremely positive step. Genius.
This is ostensibly a solo album by Jerry Dugger, a familiar name on the New York City blues scene, but a peek inside quickly reveals that it's really another step in the evolution of indie impresario Tom Gould's Bossa Nova Beatniks empire. An extremely positive step.
Gould is the producer, engineer, writer and player (bass, guitar and vibes) whose presence will be immediately detected by fans of his eclectic and energetic approach to melodic world pop, but it's a particular mark of his genius that he recruited Dugger to handle the vocal chores.
Dugger's rich baritone may be more accustomed to handling material from the books of, say, Willie Dixon or Ray Charles, but he finds just the right way to frame every one of Gould's offerings, which range from ska to pop ballads to swing to roadhouse blues to, well, there doesn't seem to be anything Gould won't try, and no place he'll go where Dugger can't keep up. They make an irresistible team.
Jerry Dugger writes "Tom Gould is cool. The kind of cool you wish you could be." He's right. Almost. No need to wish anymore Jerry. You're cool, too. The kind of cool Tom is. The kind of cool I wish I could be.
Maybe one more spin of this thing will get me there...
