Holly Hofmann On Piano Jazz


Courtesy of the artist.

Classically trained flutist Holly Hofmann was influenced by her father, a fine jazz guitarist. At age five, she chose the flute because she could carry it to play music with him. Hofmann has taken the flute from the orchestra to the jazz stand, making her mark with a bluesy style all her own. In this session from 2002, bassist Darek Oles joins Hofmann and host Marian McPartland to perform a set including “You and the Night and the Music” and “Bohemia After Dark.”

Originally broadcast in the spring of 2002.
