With the successful release of their debut album “Full Power” it’s been like a chain reaction of positive response, reviews and airplay. Tristan made No.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.
”The best of the seventies brought to today” is what TOTO guitarist and singer Steve Lukather came up with when he heard the music of TRISTAN!
A new chapter now unfolds: The follow up album entitled ‘2nd Phase” is here from which the first single is “Finally Found”, a duet with USA soul-singer Heston. Tristan’s music can best be described as feel good vintage Acid Jazz music with the energy, vibe and sound of 2015 by some of today’s best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe. Funky rhythm- guitars, Hammonds, Fender Rhodes and synths, and a rhythm section that has been playing together for decades. All this gives singer Evelyn Kallansee the solid ground to make her beautiful vocal sound shine. It will bring you back to that great sound of the seventies. Well produced recordings and live performances often joined by a horn section, a string section and a host of backing vocalists. While the music may hold clear echo’s from bands like Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy and classic acid jazz acts like Incognito and Brand New Heavies, what makes this band really stand out is the high energy of the grooves and the quality of the writing and arranging. If you like well written live played and intelligently arranged Acid Jazz performed by great musicians this might just be the album you are looking for! “2nd Phase” will very much be in the same league of quality and perfection without holding back on budgets nor artistry!
