Jazz, Funk and Soul with Tristan

Jazz, Funk and Soul with Tristan

1st July 2018


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 gives singer Evelyn Kallansee the solid ground to make her beautiful vocals shine. It will bring you back to that great warm sound of the 70s, 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 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).
