Christmas In Your Heart - CD
by Peorian Dave Hoffman
David Hoffman, trumpet player for Ray Charles, creates a unique take on the Christmas season with this CD combining original material and classic Christmas tunes. Utilizing his collection of traditional and obscure brass instruments, and the talents of brilliant musicians and vocalists, he paints a broad spectrum of styles and modes.
"Hoffman is a blue-chip player with a lovely sound, impressive technique and sizable reservoir of provocative ideas." -Jack Bowers, All About Jazz
"Hoffman has escaped the smoke-filled, hard-edged jazz world with its best goodies and melded them with pure soul. The music is free and sophisticated, yet mouth-watering in its transcendencies." - New Age Review
