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 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 6th studio album What Could Possibly Go Wrong will be released on Friday 2nd April, see a preview below:
As we’ve come to expect from Tristan… Their new album “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” is packed with great grooves tight bass lines, shimmering guitars with keyboards excursions always framing every composition perfectly. The vocal harmonies are gorgeous and the leads are the icing on the cake! The question title is indicative of the time, but where the music is concerned… The answer will have to be… “Well, nothing!” Tristan jut got better! Peace…

Looking Back follows and if you didn’t know it, you could be listening to Incognito; a soulful groove with the vocals of Jaycilee Teterissa sounding just as good as Imaani from Incognito. The magic works again on I’ve Been Loving You Too Long, “I know every song that lifts you up” sings Teterissa as if she knows what we have been missing.
– Yorkshire Times – Graham Clark
The album’s a 16 tracker and the tune currently winning radio plays and chart placings is ‘Rising Up’ and it’s a perfect summation of the Tristan sound – catchy, melodic, strong lead vocal and sweet supporting harmonies over an Acid-Jazz/Euro soul backdrop.
