George Hoffman is an up and coming British Jazz Pianist/Vocalist, who specialises in music from the Great American Songbook. With an extensive repertoire of many well-known jazz standards. George has recently formed his own trio and plans on developing this, among other projects, and continue to grow within the thriving jazz scene here in the UK. George draws his inspiration from the likes of Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson, Jamie Cullum and others. George is also expanding on his vocal ability, taking influence from several legendary jazz greats such as Chet Baker, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. As well as a solo artist, George is the pianist in his regional big band the 'Ashford Youth Jazz Orchestra', who are a touring ensemble and have visited places such as the birthplace of jazz New Orleans, performed as the 'Big Band in a Day' support act at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and recently a tour of Germany, with more events planned for the future. George has also performed at the Royal Albert Hall as a vocalist in a trad jazz band as part of the Music For Youth Schools Proms, and is classically trained in piano having received an Associateship Diploma from Trinity College London.

The George Hoffman Trio's Song list

All of me
Fly me to the moon
I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
Blue in green
Autumn Leaves
September in the rain
As time goes by
Georgia on my mind
Dream a little dream
Stormy weather
At Last
Girl from Ipanema
Ain't Misbehavin
On the Sunny Side of the Street
Basin Street Blues
Come Fly With Me
All the things you are
I should Care
Lady Bird
After You've gone
Have you met miss jones
I love you for sentimental Reasons
Orange Coloured Sky
I've got you under my skin
Lullaby of Birdland
Night and Day
On the street where you live
Someday My Prince will come
Summer time
Song for my father
Alone together
What is this thing called love
Pennies from Heaven
Bye Bye Blackbird
Beautiful Love
Just Friends
In a Mellow Tone
There will never be another you
Tea for two
Sky Lark
What a difference a day makes
When I fall in love
On green dolphin street
It's only a paper moon
I fall in love too easily
Lil darlin'
If I only had a brain
Left bank Two
That old feeling
Welcome to my world
I've never been in love before
It could happen to you
How Insensitive
The best things in life are free
If I were a Bell
Weaver of Dreams
There's a small hotel
My funny valentine
I can dream, can't I?
Cheek to cheek
Like someone in love
How High the Moon
There is no Greater Love
Dolphin dance
But not for me
A foggy day
When you're smiling
A fine romance
Here's that rainy day
Smoke gets in your eyes
I get along without you very well
The lady is a tramp
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Alice in wonderland
I could have danced all night
I'll be seeing you
It's a sin to tell a lie
Stella by starlight
My buddy
Blue bossa
The nearness of you
Slow boat to China
Blue monk
Chega de saudade
Out of nowhere
The song is you
I get a kick out of you
I can't give you anything but love
I've got you under my skin
Straighten up and fly right
Cheer up charlie
Make someone happy
A flower is a lovesome thing
My foolish heart
My romance
Do it the hard way

The trio played brilliantly for my dad's 80th and were very much appreciated. Professionally, capable and polite. Very slightly later then planned due to bad traffic, but no real problem, Would highly recommend on all counts.

George and his band are professional, personable and, more importantly, excellent musicians. They were a pleasure to work with and it was an honor to have them play at our wedding. I'd recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat.
