Tristan Banks : Cidade Alta

UK release date 12.12.2016

Fierce latin / samba rhythms pervade throughout this ever building and thrilling instrumental. There's a strong head played masterfully on the flute (Ze Luis) that soon dances merrily over a groove that picks up when the choice rhodes and chordal blessedness kicks in.

It's quality music destined for any Dingwalls Sunday afternoon (that might come about anytime soon hopefully). This is immediately impressionable, it leaves its mark and latin lovers will find it hard to come away feeling cheated.

Banks is on top form as he tears through this floor filler, tropical lushness to soothe the winter blues away. Bang on the money! Available on Bandcamp now.
