Moon & Sand
'What a voice. A rich ruby instrument, dark and full and at times gleaming; like Dexter Gordon's tenor or Jim Hall's guitar.' Neil Tesser, Jazz Critic, Chicago Reader. 'One of the best singers in the business. She's the real thing, a singer with not only a fine voice, but an authentic feeling for jazz. You can understand her every word, and her simple sound is just lovely. For you excellence freaks out there, it's a treat.' Steve Allen, noted pianist, composer and author. After attending Bloom School of Jazz in 1988, Hinda Hoffman spent several years honing her skills at 'open mike' nights in Chicago jazz clubs. In 1993, she was selected as the featured vocalist in the 'Jazz in July' program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Hinda has performed at the Chicago Jazz Festival, the Cabaret Convention in New York City, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in San Francisco, and Van Dyke's Café in Miami Beach. She appears in clubs throughout Chicagoland, and her CDs, You Are There and Moon and Sand, can be heard on jazz radio stations across the country.
