" ‘Hefti' [from the CD Curioso] makes you smile with its delicate riffs and uplifting swing."
-- DJ Jelly Roll Justice, WWOZ-FM, New Orleans, LA

"A couple more discs like this...and his infectious, melodic writing and polished musicianship
will surely start to win him a serious following."
-- Gary Dalkin, music writer and editor - Film Music on the Web

"...the Hollywood impressions of Marc Hoffman's "Middle Earth" made some pieces on the program seem stale and derivative.
