O’s Notes: Israeli bebop guitarist Amos Hoffman started his musical journey in his native land then moved to Amsterdam before making hay in New York in the 1990s. He completed the circle returning to Israel where he remained for 14 years. The New York jazz scene brought Amos Back To The City where he recorded this collection in February 2015. His band includes polished artists from his past that have remained in the NYC jazz spotlight. Bassist Omer Avital, trumpeter Duane Eubanks, saxophonist Asaf Yuria, Itai Kriss on flute and drummer Vince Ector keep things swinging as well as injecting hot passages along the way. There are four classics and six originals that are fit for reminiscing or enjoying as most straight ahead fans will do on repeated occasions with this CD.
