ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For his debut album Plunge For Distance, Dutch guitarist Syberen van Munster has brought together an unusual formation of talented peers: Saxophonist and Monk competition semi-finalist Ben van Gelder, Brazilian accordionist and Hermeto Pascoal band member Vitor Gonçalves, the bass player Rick Rosato, known for his work with Jonathan Kreisberg, and drummer Mark Schilders, one of the most in-demand musicians in the Netherlands currently.

From a wide array of influences that include Elis Regina, Samuel Barber, Boards of Canada, and Gil Evans, they craft a sound that is lush, pulsating and subtly melancholic. Due to the atypical instrumentation, the music can be at times orchestral, fully utilizing the harmonic spectrum.

A native of Amsterdam, Syberen van Munster has lived in New York City since 2009, where he has performed at venues such as Smoke Jazz Club, The Blue Note, Rockwood Music Hall, and the city's go-to jazz guitar club, the Bar Next Door. He regularly jumps out of the fish tank however, to perform at such places as the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., The North Sea Jazz Festival in The Netherlands or The Boozy Muse in Tokyo.
Afraid of water as a kid, a major handicap when growing up in a very wet country, Syberen spent many a swimming lesson on the side of the pool, afraid to take the plunge.
