Tristan 'Live in Concert'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Monday 2 nd July 2018

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Tristan's music can best be described as feel good vintage Acid Jazz music with the energy, vibe and sound of 2018 by some of today’s best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe. Funky rhythm-guitars, Hammond, 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 vocals shine. It will bring you back to that great warm sound of the seventies, with a fresh breeze of influences from the present. Well-produced recordings and live performances often joined by a horn-section, a string section and a host of backing vocalists.


“.. This amazing band can relate itself to international musicians on this level." - OOR

"I'll Be Around" features great vocals, loads of horns stabs, a great electric piano run and a soaring guitar solo....and did I mention great vocals too?” - Soulmusic Magazine

Thanks to the success they achieved after their third album 'Lifestyle', Tristan released a live recorded album entitled: ‘Live in Concert’. This concert will broadcasted worldwide at Stingray/Djazz TV throughout 2017/ 2018. 

The music of Tristan may sound as bands like Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy, or classic acid Jazz acts such as Incognito and the Brand New Heavies. All produce high energy grooves, but Tristan’s bands exclude itself though their high-quality arrangements and compositions.

 Their debut album - 'Full Power' that was released in 2014, triggered loads of positive responses, reviews and airplay. Tristan worked together with US-soul singer Heston, saxophone player Nigel Hitchcock and trumpeter Randy Brecker and many more for this album. As well as their album ‘Lifestyle’ they collaborated with Heston, but also vocalist Francesco Cottone and the Dutch upcoming talent: KASPER. Due to this the album has a lot of different colours and timbres without losing their own sound.

 Both ‘Full Power’ and ‘2nd phase’ reached number 1 in the UK Soul charts. Followed by lots of (inter-) national live concerts and radio shows.

 Listening to the new material will surely convince you that this group is full of energy, drive and commitment to provide the listener with honest music of highest quality level.
