Dave Hoffman's album Groovin' encompasses Jazz in it's purest sense. The feeling is laced with humor as well as Be Bop and Latin (A number of musicians on this album also played with Sergio Mendez). Groovin' is absolutely stunning in its reach and shows that Hoffman is a unique and expansive talent that will birth many wonderful albums in the years to come!
