Polder - Contemporary Jazz Live Act in Amersfoort

Polder Short Info

The new POLDER quintet is led by versatile bass player/composer Guus Bakker.
Inspired by the style of musicians such as Dave Holland, Avishai Cohen and Scott Colley, POLDER brings you bold grooves with surprising turns, dynamics and changes of metre, horn sections combined with shredding guitars, solemn ballads, with a nod to 'classic swing'.

‘The European jazz scene is livelier, more diverse and more creative than ever’, says Frank Carlberg, ‘POLDER is a perfect example of this phenomenon’.

As iconic bass player Hein Van de Geyn puts it: ‘A real contemporary sound exposes wonderful original compositions. Poetic, angular, dark, ethereal, groovy, floating … The freshest sound I have come across for quite a while!’
