About Al Hofmann:
Willy Sparrow was born in Buenos Aires, (Argentina), in a family of musicians, and started to play the guitar at the age of eight.
At twenty he recorded his first album named Magic Band, released by I.O.N records. He has done session work with several well-known musicians in Buenos Aires.
Since arriving in Europe in the late 80's he has performed a lot of fusion and modern-jazz (among other styles) in Madrid, Barcelona, the Basque Country, not to mention his participation in various festivals: Gent, Oostende, Brussel, Lyon, Brighton, Hamburg, Ferrara, Ravenna, Sta. Sofia, New York, etc.
In Amsterdam, his home base, he played at the Bimhuis, Milky Way Multicultural Centrum, Tropen Museum (with ex-percussionist Osibisa Kofi Ayibor) and made a couple of programs for Marra TV and the Kunst channel. At the same time he produced music of his own and for other artists, using computer devices and Midi systems in his home studio.
At present he is gigging around performing material from his latest CD "The signs are everywhere" in which he introduces his Midi guitar playing and multilayered system, where different instruments can be recorded in real time and played at the same time on the principal of accumulating musical phrases in a loop device.

A new approach to the "One man band"concept.
