I finally did it! Making my own first cd as a bandleader and composing all the pieces on it.

The basis of the new POLDER quintet, is the Rotterdam GAP trio, featuring Andreas Suntrop (guitar) and Pim Dros (drums) with me on the acoustic bass. Our rhythm section is completed by Nils van Haften (saxophones) and Vincent Veneman (trombone), both of whom are strong soloists and great team players.
