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 of this underpins Jaycilee's stunningly beautiful vocals and her soulfulness complements the Jazz aspect really well. 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.
With the successful release of our debut album "Full Power" it's been like a chain reaction of positive response, reviews and airplay. Tristan hit nr.1 on the UK soul-charts and got to do a whole bunch of great live performances as headlining act as well as being the support band for Incognito. "Full Power" will now also be available as special edition in Japan! (October 2014)
''The best of the seventies brought to 2014'' is what TOTO guitarist and singer Steve Lukather came up with when he heard the music of TRISTAN!
