Jazz, Funk & Soul…

It’s tough to sit still when listening to Netherlands-based R&B band Tristan. The quintet has a keen sense of classic soul, funk and pop, and they bring high energy to every song on their always-fun albums.

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 Jaycilee’s 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. T

Tristan’s debut release, ‘Full Power’ (2014) and their highly acclaimed follow up ‘2ndPhase” (2015) – received rave reviews and both albums going straight to No 1 in the UK soul charts. Their third album ‘Lifestyle’(Spring 2016) proved that this is a band with something to say.
