Feel good Acid Jazz music with the energy, vibe and sound of 2016 by some of today’s best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe.
Funky rhythm guitars, Hammonds, Fender Rhodes and synths – with a rhythm section that has been playing together for decades. All this gives lead singer Evelyn Kallensee the solid ground to make her beautiful vocal sound shine.
While the music may hold clear echos from bands like Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy and classic acid jazz acts like Incognito and Brand New Heavies, what make the band really stand out is the high energy of the grooves and the quality of writing and arranging.
Tristan’s debut release ‘Full Power’ – which featured US soul singer Heston, UK sax maestro Nigel Hitchcock and legendary American trumpeter Randy Brecker – received rave reviews.
Their highly acclaimed follow-up, ‘2nd Phase’, proved that this is a band with something to say. Both albums went straight to No 1 of the UK soul charts.
