2Nd Phase(Signed Copy)
As the title suggests, Dutch powerhouse Jazzy Soul band Tristan have quickly followed up last year’s excellent debut with a new full length release. Kicking off in unmistakable Tristan style ‘Supersize My Sunshine’ has a strong Incognito feel: jazzy horns, bubbling percussion and those great vocals from Evelyn Kallansee combine to create a memorable, fast paced opener. ‘Hey Sister’ has a positive message atop a real throwback jazz funk sound, ‘Tune In’, ‘Running Out Of Time’ and ‘Finally Found’ (the latter also has Heston joining in on vocal duties) are more mellow: less frantic but just as strong. These guys really hit their stride when they cook up a funky jazz storm and ‘Chainreaction’, ‘Falcon’ and ‘Morning’ show that trademark dancefloor vibe they are loved for. Another superb, consistent set.
