The tight and tasty new album Keep on Push’n provides a strong statement, moving forward with the band’s confident melding of roots-funk and Afro-Latin flavors. The deep grooves hint at everything from Fela Kuti to the Crusaders, Donald Byrd, and even early Earth, Wind & Fire...

 ...all of which invoke a warm throwback vibe but with a breakbeat-ready, forward look. The New Triumph can ably represent Seattle in a venerable pantheon of laid-back, eclectic West coast funk.

–Andrew Luthringer, Earshot Jazz Magazine June 2017

“Such an amazing band! These guys were on fire and had so many of us dancing the night away - stopping mid-groove just to watch the amazing musicians trade solos and cheer with satisfaction when they were through! Thank you, New Triumph and please come back soon! Port Townsend loves you!” - Aimee Ringle (singer, vocal coach)

Keep on Push'n is a diverse record that should provide plenty of interest for fans of jazz and fusion. Some of the catchier moments had me hooked almost immediately which is never a bad thing in my book. Recommended.

"These songs will have you dancing, and satisfy a headphone session as well. Favorites from the album around the New Cool Control Center (Abe's desk) include the laid back title song (Morning's solo is especially fun!), the beach party vibes of "El Sapo De Culiacan", and most of all "Count Dracula's African Vacation". - Abe Beeson radio host at 88.5 KNKX
