What people are saying about BACK TO THE CITY!



Review: Back to the City (All About Jazz)

Back To The City finds Hoffman rekindling old musical relationships, covering classics all by his lonesome, and delivering a good number of originals that speak in different tongues... performances that ably demonstrate how an artist can be an in-the-tradition player and an individualist all at once. 

-Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
