Since the beginning of the band in 2006, Sven Hammond has been known for rock, soul and blues: styles that always sound familiar, but never get boring. A band that always follows its own course and continues to innovate and develop independently of trends and conventions. Even with 9 released (live) albums to their name, they continue to innovate and develop. In the past two years they have spent a lot of time in the studio, resulting in a new album “Sphere”, which has just been released. This album is an ode to Thelonius Monk and his piano pieces. Sven Hammond can be seen in PAARD with their latest album Sphere December 30, 2021!

SVEN HAMMOND (translated from Dutch): “It was in café de Pater (what’s in a name?) In The Hague that I played the music of Thelonious Monk for the first time, together with the other ‘jazz cats’ of my generation. this long cherished wish: an album dedicated to the music of Monk. But I wanted more: to look for a collaboration with the young talents from the hip-hop and soul area of today. Because Monk’s music is timeless. It has inspired many musicians before and after me and because I hope to reach and inspire a new, young generation of music lovers with it. De Pater lives on!
