Christopher A Hoffman

Multifaceted cellist Christopher Hoffman has perfomed with Pagoda, Ryan Scott, Clare Muldaur, Christina Courtin, Ryan Adams, John Zorn, Devotchka, Henry Threadgill, Jenny Scheinman,Fred Lonberg-Holm, Butch Morris, Nate Wooley, Otomo Yoshide, Teddy Thompson, Dar Williams, Young Love, Anistar, Mat Maneri and Elizabeth Ziman among others.
”In the second movement, he (Henry Threadgill) and Hoffman went head to head on alto and cello, while Heffernan and Kodheli scraped disconsolately and Kavee stoked polyrhythmic fires; it was the first of two peaks in a consistently gripping performance. ~Village Voice

“Indeed, the cellist at times appeared to be channeling the combined spirits of Shankar and John McLaughlin.”

“.....(Aaron Ali Shaikh) is responding to the shard melodic stage with the excellent improvising cellist, Christopher Hoffman. The two gracefully twist and twine, allowing each moments of space.” ~ All About Jazz
