“Great program by Amos Hoffman and his band! How refreshing to hear someone who has captured the essence and mastery of the great ones. Masterful composing, arranging, and playing is not an easy task to pull off in one package, but it is so well executed here. Whether bop, blues, or ballads, Amos has captured in this recording what makes for great listening, for a long time to come!" -Wycliffe Gordon
“This fifth recording by Israeli-born, US-based guitarist and oud player Amos Hoffman represents a return — not only to North America, but to a straight-ahead jazz concept. Following three oud-oriented albums, Back to the City presents us with Hoffman's distinctive renditions of four beloved jazz standards, as well as six new originals which have the feeling of well-loved, familiar tunes.” – Sharonne Cohen (album liner notes)
