Musicians who are highly regarded yet manage to fly under the radar are rarities. Guitarist/composer Ben Monder has steeled himself as a peerless innovator on his instrument, yet the scarcity of his releases as a leader has made him known mainly to connoisseurs. Sunnyside is proud to present Monder�s new recording, Hydra, which features the guitarist�s astounding music performed by an incredible cast, including vocalist Theo Bleckmann, drummer Ted Poor and bassists Sk�li Sverrisson and John Patitucci.
