Tristan – The Spice Of Five

The Dutch formation Tristan consists of the band members Evelyn Kallansee (vocals), Guy Nikkels (guitars), Coen Molenaar (keyboards), Sebastian Cornelissen (drums) and Frans Vollink (bass). Their debut album Full Power (2014) features US soul singer Heston, UK saxophone maestro Nigel Hitchcock and legendary American trumpeter Randy Brecker.

Their sophomore album 2nd Phase followed in 2015. Further albums are Lifestyle (2016) and a Live in Concert album (2017). Their new album The Spice Of Five will be released on April 5, 2019.
