Drummer/composer Tristan Banks draws on over 30 years of experience as a sideman for many grammy award winning and multi-platinum selling artists (Roy Ayers, Steve Winwood, Dave Valentin, David Gilmour, Beverley Knight, Hexagonal, Peter King, Lewis Taylor, Guy Barker, Marcos Valle, Liane Carroll, Mike Lindup, Terry Callier, Da Lata, Jim Mullen, Carleen Anderson and Mayra Andrade).

Mixing influences from jazz, latin and fusion, Banks' debut album View From Above is a unique combination of high-octane virtuosic performance and sublimely melodic composition. Banks unifies his long standing musical friends Paul Booth on sax / flute (Steve Winwood, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, Steely Dan, Carlos Santana, Van Morrison, Allman Brothers Band, Bonnie Raitt, Chaka Khan, Jamiroquai, Gregory Porter, Eddie Henderson, Clarence Penn and Ingrid Jensen), Latin-jazz pianist John Crawford (Airto Moreira, Giovanni Hidalgo, Snowboy, Roberto Pla) and Davide Mantovani on bass (Lisa Stansfield, Tony Allen, Zoe Rahman, Jim Mullen, Andy Sheppard, Jason Rebello, Alex Wilson, Jean Toussaint and a whole heap of world-music collaborations including Baaba Maal, Seckou Keita, Natacha Atlas, Mulatu Astatke, Nana Vasconcelos, Kuljit Bahmra, Justin Adams, Cheick Lô, Baseckou Kouyate, Cheo Feliciano, Herman Olivera, Aster Aweke, Antonio Forcione).

View From Above is due for release on the Ubuntu Music record label March 31st 2023.
