LIVING is Jan Gunnar Hoff's first solo piano album. His personal blend of different styles and influences is presented in it's purest form - simply music. Some of Hoff's pieces are meditative and expressive while others have a strong rhythmic nerve, creating contrast and variation in the program. As a sideman Hoff has contributed to numerous recordings in different genres. He was the arranger and ensemble leader of Quiet Winter Night, Grammy-nominated for Best Surround Sound in 2013, an album where he successfully merges elements of jazz, folk and popular music.
