Tristan Posted on by Tristan interview on Colourful Radio 28-March-2021 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. Tristan’s debut release, ‘Full Power’ – which featured US soul singer Heston, UK saxophone maestro Nigel Hitchcock and legendary American trumpeter Randy Brecker – received rave reviews, while their highly acclaimed follow-up, ‘2nd Phase’, proved that this is a band with something to say, both albums going straight to No 1 in the UK soul charts. The group continued to surprise again, in 2016 with ‘Lifestyle’ and 2017 ‘Live in Concert’. Those CD’s brought them in 2016/ 2017 all over the world: Japan, United Kingdom , Germany, Poland, Romania, Denmark, Luxembourg and France. ‘The Spice of Five’ is their fifth album, and was released worldwide in April 2019. The 6th chapter ‘What Could Possibly Go Wrong’ already in our quite productive recording existence. It’s been only going up from when we first started out and we like to express that positive vibe into our music as well. On this occasion of producing a brand new album, we tried to continue the code of keeping it a true and honest band-album. We recorded 14 Brand new songs, full of that good spicy energy. Therefore you could take this album title quite literally…. But then again, put 5 distinct characters in a band bus traveling all over Europe and beyond,…you never know what will happen along the way;-) Usually lots of laughter and funny stories created by nature. Food for creative thoughts that often inspires our lyrics and titles. Every time we ‘hop’ into our transportation towards the next gig, it is almost certain a new adventure is about to enfold. Our reward of course is to entertain the people and fans on stage, but even there…you see, we give it our all, and like to take risks within the music big time. The beauty of each and every concert being totally different and a challenge for us to fulfil.
