Amos Hoffman


Tel Aviv based guitarist and oudist Amos Hoffman started playing guitar at the age of 6, and oud a few years later. He studied guitar privately, and attended the prestigious Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His search for new musical experiences led him first to Amsterdam, and then to New York City, where he played jazz with both established musicians like Dennis Charles, Evelyn Blakey and Juma Santos and up and coming talents like Jason Lindler, Omer Avital, Sam Newsome, Jay Collins, bassist Avishai Cohen, Jorge Rossi and Duane Eubanks. He also began a more formal study of Middle Eastern music with Lebanese oud and ney player, Bassam Saba.

Edwin G. Hamilton: The Whole World Must Change

Read "The Whole World Must Change" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Edwin G. Hamilton plays drums, sings, covers organ, adds strings, writes, supplies percussion, provides piano, and includes some vibraphone work on this album.
