Primary Instrument: Producer
TRIBA Jazz from Holland
Richard Pattiselanno (compositions/arrangements), Rick van Hek (vocal- arrangements) and Nancy van Hek (lyrics) gathered 22 musicians to work with them on their first album 'Living in a World. The Triba-sound lies somewhere between jazz, fusion or latin, it's a combination of all, not a dilution - a funky groovy style that is at once easy listening and sophisticated. Most of the songs are original compositions, but here are also some covers with fantastic new arrangements that will surprise you. This group became, described by the late Rob Madna, 'one happy family' eager to make groovy music. Reviews of Triba and also the recommendations of the great jazz-musicians Jerry van Rooyen and Rob Madna have been very positive. Rob worked with Triba and Jerry invited Nancy and Rick to sing and play some of his arrangements with the Dutch Jazz Orchestra. Richard, who played with a lot of great musicians (Dick van der Capllen, Rosa King, Slide Hampton, George Coleman, Larry WildWrice, Killer Ray Appleton and many others) is the great inspiration behind Triba, his interpretation of music is essential to the Triba Sound.
Triba: Nancy (lead vocals), Richard (guitar), Rick (piano/synth/backing vocals) with Enrique Firpi or Taco Gorter (drums), Taco Nieuwenhuizen (bass), Sylvia Sars (vocals/flute), Mike Booth or Michael Simon (trumpet/flugelhorn) and Cyrille Oswald (tenorsax/flute).
