Tomorrow night on The New Jazz Thing at 7pm PT, flutist Holly Hofmann and pianist Mike Wofford will be coming into the studio for an interview to talk with Vince Outlaw about their latest release "Turn Signal" that's also a part of our new adds this week. While they live in San Diego, they're usually always performing in other cities so it'll be a pleasure to have them!



The release also features trumpeter Terrell Stafford, bassist Rob Thorsen and drummer Richard Sellers.

Here's a video of them playing Lee Morgan's Speedball last year at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library:
