'The best of the seventies brought to 2023'' is what TOTO guitarist and singer Steve Lukather came up with when he heard the music of TRISTAN!
JAZZ, FUNK & SOUL WITH TRISTAN
Dutch five-piece Tristan's music can be best described as feel-good vintage Acid Jazz, with the energy, vibe and sounds of today,
performed by some of the best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe.
Funky rhythm guitars, Hammond, Fender Rhodes and synths, and a rhythm section that has been performing together for decadesplaying solid grooves and tight, punchy arrangements that have since become their trademark. All this underpins singer Jaycilee stunningly beautiful and soulful vocals. It will take you back to that great warm sound of the 70's, with a fresh breeze of influences from the present. While Tristan’s music may sound like bands such as Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy, or classic Acid Jazz acts such as Incognito and the Brand New Heavies - who all produce high energy grooves - what makes this group stand out from their contemporaries is the high quality of the compositions and arrangements.
Tristan's debut release, ‘Full Power’ - which featured US soul singer Heston, UK saxophone maestro Nigel Hitchcock and legendary American trumpeter Randy Brecker - received rave reviews, while their highly acclaimed follow-up, ‘2nd Phase’, proved that this is a band with something to say, both albums going straight to No 1 in the UK soul charts.
The group continued to surprise again, in 2016 with 'Lifestyle' and 2017 'Live in Concert'. Those CD's brought them in 2016/ 2017 all over the world: Japan, United Kingdom , Germany, Poland, Romania, Denmark Luxembourg, France.
2019 brought 'The Spice of Five" , recorded with only the 5-piece core of the band.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong is their sixt album, and was released worldwide April 2021.
Scheduled for release on the 3rd of March 2023 is "SEVEN ",the already 7th album of TRISTAN
