Jazz by the Waterfront Extra are new evenings that compliment our regular bi-monthly season and it's our pleasure to present Tristan and the tour of their most recent album Spice of Five.
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 this underpins singer Evelyn Kallansee's stunningly beautiful 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.
Their success has seen them touring Japan, France, Poland, United Kingdom, Germany and Romania to name a few.
In 2017 they released worldwide a 'live in concert' album with an extended band .
Though their latest 5th album is recorded with only 'the 5-piece core' of the band expect to hear the full range of Tristan's hallmark uplifting, pure and energetic grooves on 'The Spice of Five' . This CD was released worldwide in April 2019. In June 2019 there has been a special Japanese release through Sweet Soul Records Tokyo.

"...an uncompromising recipe of Tower of Power's funky jazz hits, Toto’s slick pop/R&B crossover arrangements and Steely Dan's intricate pop/jazz melodies." - SoulTracks
