My solo recording
was recently reviewed by All About Jazz Italia
. It was a positive and detailed review. For those Hofbauer fans and friends who read Italian it can be FOUND HERE.
My friend Luca from the recent Julius Caesar tour translated it for me. What follows is my favorite quote (the line between self-marketing and vanity may be crossed here, my apologies)…”Hofbauer is one of the most genuinely original guitarists of his generation, capable of renewing the language of jazz guitar with a fresh and iconoclastic approach, but without disrespect to tradition. This distinguishes him from the vast majority of his colleagues, and makes him and his work, worthy of careful consideration.
