Holiday Redux: Marc Hoffman Releases Remixes of Two Christmas Classics
Recording artist/pianist Marc Hoffman puts a new jazz spin on two holiday favorites.

“Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” features Hoffman on piano and vocals as he spins a soft, soulful interpretation of the song introduced by Judy Garland in 1944 in the musical “Meet Me in St. Louis.” (http://www.marchoffman.com/
“Good Christian Men, Rejoice” is an instrumental piece from the 1300s that Hoffman re-imagines on piano as an upbeat, jazz-infused melody. (http://www.marchoffman.com/
“We are planning to re-release Christmas Time next season, remixed, with some new tunes added as well,” Hoffman said. “These two are a sneak peek at what to expect with the new mix.”
Christmas Time is a collection of Hoffman’s original tunes and new arrangements of traditional seasonal standards that Virillion Music first released in 2007. The entire CD is available on iTunes.
A prolific composer and performer (solo, trio, quartet and orchestra), Marc Hoffman’s other recordings for Virillion Music include Curioso, an eclectic, all-original jazz CD, and “Long Way Home,” a collection of original piano solos.
Since 1990, Virillion Music has been the home of composer/pianist Marc Hoffman and has also been creating new music and promoting Hoffman’s compositions and other select artists and bands. For more information on Hoffman and Virillion Music, visit www.marchoffman.com.
