My Little French Dancer
From the desk of: OLIVER VON ESSEN I am delighted to have shared in the creation of Diane Hoffman's latest album. It is not just for Jazz aficionados, but is an absolute gem for all those receptive to musical pleasure. Diane Hoffman is a true artist, a painter as well as a singer, who lends her own sense of proportion and line to her singing. She is an authentic jazz musician who brings an intuitive blues sensibility to her music and interacts in a playful and sure footed way with her band. Diane's unaffected voice is true to life. She avoids technical tricks and instead makes direct emotional connections. Diane conveys an unmistakable realness so that her interpretations are musical portraits of an ever evolving woman, one who has lived, loved, seen and heard life with an intense curiosity. Have fun listening and toe tapping, and don't be afraid to turn up the volume!
