Album Review

Holly Hofmann is one of the top flautists in jazz, though she was classically trained. Joined by pianist Mike Wofford (who is also her husband), bassist Peter Washington and drummer Victor Lewis, she kicks off with a mini-tribute to the late Ray Brown. Brown's samba arrangement of Cole Porter's "Everything I Love" and his own funky "CRS-Craft" (the first part a hilarious acronym for "Can't Remember S — t") feature Washington as well as the leader. "Minor Miracle" is a Hofmann-Wofford collaboration that mixes a complex theme with a strutting rhythm underneath. Hofmann and Wofford make magic with their duo interpretation of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Samba de Aviao." She happily acknowledges her longtime producer's request for Ray Bryant's "Tonk" with a spirited interpretation. But she saves the most impressive tracks on the session for the end of the CD. They include the brilliant Afro-Cuban arrangement of Billy Strayhorn's "Johnny Come Lately," the haunting ballad "Minha" and her virtuoso playing in a brisk treatment of "Will You Still Be Mine?" Highly recommended!
