Hampstead Jazz Club in partnership with PizzaExpress Live, proudly presents Soul-Group Tristan, a wonderful and creative collision of funk, soul, R&B and beyond. Their new album SEVEN is the 7th chapter already in a quite productive recording existence. This year returning to PizzaExpress with a brand-new repertoire. With 12 new tracks in their vocabulary, we have got a fresh start on the road, doing what they love dearly: Spreading positive energy through their music, while taking our audience for a ride they won’t soon forget. The compositions are fun to play live, with plenty of space to evolve as we go. Their success has seen them touring Indonesia, Japan, Indonesia, France, Poland, United Kingdom, Germany and Romania the last couple of years.

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. (According to Soultracks USA)

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.

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.

‘Live in concert’ (2017), and in 2019 the studio album “The Spice of Five” were next. The band went back to ‘the 5-piece core’ of the band, and as expected you hear the full range of Tristan’s hallmark uplifting, pure and energetic grooves on ‘The Spice of Five’.

With ‘What Could Possibly Go Wrong’, Tristan’s 6th album (released in spring 2021), their journey continued, and brought them (despite of the pandemic) to many new places.

Their success has seen them touring Indonesia, Japan, France, Poland, United Kingdom, Germany, and Romania the last couple of years.

The group released their 7th studio album, SEVEN  in March 2023.

From September 2022 on, the group stuns again. “Something like This”, Shadows in the Moonlight and Diamonds, their first three new singles,  are receiving (again) many plaudits from around the world including:

Jazz FM UK, NPO radio 2 (Dutch National Radio),Solar Radio UK , Sweet Rhythm Chart #3, Soulstrutter , 8.3* Blues and Soul Magazine ,Echoes Magazine, Luxury Soul collection 2023 (Expansion Records ,JFSR UK, Starpoint Radio Soulchart – #5,Colourful Radio, Soultracks USA -and many more.
