O’s Notes: David plays trumpet, trombone, flugelhorn and piano as well as writing and arranging. He has played around the world for over 25 years, most notably with The Ray Charles Orchestra. This session is easy to warm up to with both swinging Latin Jazz and classic bebop excursions. Seventeen year old Doug Stone makes a notable appearance on tenor sax blending with David as well as standing on his own. Hoffman’s vitality belies his age as he dances with the melodies, keeping the spirit light and Groovin’.
