March 18, 2019- Today's Pioneer Women Jazz Instrumentalist: Holly Hofmann
An excellent bop-oriented flutist, Holly Hofmann began on the flute when she was five. She started via an extensive classical training approach and, in 1984, when she moved to San Diego, Hofmann began playing jazz full-time.
She has worked with James Moody, Slide Hampton, and Mundell Lowe among others, before making her recording debut on Capri (1989).
Holly went on to record fine straight-ahead dates for Jazz Alliance (1992) and Azica and now the Capri label.
She leads her own groups and plays regularly in the San Diego area where she lives with her husband, pianist, Mike Wofford.
