TRistan Feb 2018-3
 

"Tristan's uplifting grooves and consummate musicianship provided an upbeat energy that well fitted our festival vibe. Hopefully more UK audiences will get the chance to discover them."

Tony Benjamin, Bristol Harbourfest 2016

“It gives me great pleasure to spread the news of Tristan's new album. Dutch jazz fusion and soul at it's finest! A collection of instrumentals that will enthral musicians everywhere and beautifully penned songs with gorgeous voices! Check it out! Peace..."

Bluey (Incognito)

". . . an uncompromising recipe of Tower of Power’s funky jazz hits, Toto’s slick pop/R&B crossover arrangements and Steely Dan’s intricate pop/jazz melodies."

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 decades playing solid grooves and tight, punchy arrangements that have since become their trademark.

All this underpins singer Evelyn Kallansee's stunningly beautiful 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 quote

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 continues to surprise yet again, with their latest offering, ‘Lifestyle’.

Evelyn Kallansee (Vocals), Coen Molenaar (Hammond & Fender Rhodes), Simone Cesarini (Guitar), Frans Vollink (Electric Bass) and Sebastiaan Cornelissen (Drums).
