Wednesday 2nd October 2019
Hampstead Jazz Club are proud to announce the return of acclaimed Dutch Jazz/Funk/Soul band ‘TRISTAN’. Following a multiple of plaudits since their first album ‘The Spice of Five’ have been making huge waves in the real world of music, where their hallmark sound has won them accolades which include ‘Best album’ release and ‘Album of the Week’ award at Jazz FM and across many Radio stations.
This up and coming performance will showcase the genius of collective songwriting, musicianship and die-hard vocals featuring on this incredible fifth new album release.
TRISTAN “The Spice of Five” – JAZZ, FUNK & SOUL
This enduring and talented 5-piece unite as a ‘force majeure’ to bring you their best works to date by cranking up those funk grooves, infectious arrangements and signature jazz/funk sound.
Their new album was recorded with ‘the 5-piece core’ of the band. Pure, energetic, groovy songs will appear on their ‘The Spice of Five’ album (Release April 2019)
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.
Tristan’s trademark of solid grooves and tight punchy arrangements of funky rhythm guitars and outstanding rhythm section is pure class. All this underpins singer Evelyn Kallansee’s stunningly beautiful vocals. It will take you back to that great warm and soothing sound of the 70’s, with a fresh breeze of influences from the present.
“We give you a recipe to dance. A tasty soup with each band member adding the right spice or ingredient to make this all really happening” – TRISTAN
While the high energy grooves of Tristan encompasses musical similarities to bands such as Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy, or classic Acid Jazz acts such as Incognito and the Brand New Heavies, Tristan’s exquisite high quality of compositions and arrangements is what makes this group stand out from their contemporaries with their signature musicianship.
“Tristan were an absolute blast! They nailed it right from the first number, impressing the audience with their exemplary musicianship and original compositions” – Steve Wright, Jazz Curator, Colchester Arts Centre Jazz Club, UK
“Tristan are no mere copyists – They have their own sound, they offer real variety and in singer Evelyn Kallansee they have a unique and energized voice” – JazzFunkSoul
