ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ive pulled together a new band called The Trailmen for this new CD. The genesis started with my love of old cowboy western movies that I watched Saturday mornings as kid. I wrote a few tunes that are kind of a salute to Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and The Sons of the Pioneers.

Once we rode into the studio The Trailmen came to life and we just keep playing and recording. Id pull out another tune from my solo sets and off we went! It just happened which is the best thing a musician can ask for.

Id like to thank the very talented musicians who recorded with me...John Brzoza on guitar....Paul Gilmore on Bass....Tom Peterson on Drums..... Joe Behar on Trumpet.

Riding Into Town
I truly enjoyed this CD. The title song has a catchy tone. Contigo is a beautiful love song. Every song on this CD is a hit with me. It has a nice mix.

Riding Into Town
For anyone who likes Western music and is a fan of fun lyrics and catchy tunes, this album is a must hear. Mr. Hood has a great voice and the back up band is very tight yet fluid. I loved it all!

Hank Stone

A good ride
As one-half of the duo The Unknown Gentlemen, Long Island's Tom Hood has released half a dozen CD's with bandmate Paul Carden. There are many good songs on those discs, but lost amid production that often seemed like demos, with drum-machines and one-man overdubs. So it is good to have Tom going 'solo' on his new CD "Riding Into Town," ironically with a bigger band! Paul Gilmore on bass and Tom Peterson on drums provide a solid live rock band feel for these mostly Western-themed tracks. But the real delight here is local guitar hero John Brzoza on lead. Whether giving Mexican stylings to "Pretty Senorita," Caribbean atmosphere to the Jimmy Buffet-ish "Mailboat Man," or going all-out for "The Well," and especially in a Stevie Ray Vaughn style rave-up on the seven-minute "Breaking Stones," Brzoza always shines, giving these easygoing songs depth and sparkle. Hood's vocals are relaxed and appealing, and he adds competent harmonica here and there. The southwest/Mexican atmosphere continues throughout the disc, from the cowboy-movie title track, through the bilingual ballad "Contigo," to everyone's favorite barroom sing-along, "No Mas No Mas."
This will definitely rate in my Top Ten for 2008.
