Chat Noir

For the past 12 years, Chat Noir has been a piano-bass-drums trio that has performed original compositions unconfined by any etiquettes of genre. From its origins as an acoustic jazz threesome, Chat Noir has progressively broadened its vocabulary with the inclusion of electronic textures and sounds. Throughout the evolution of its style, the band has at its core remained devoted to a true collective mindset rather than any leader/sideman structure. Grounded in the roots of friendship, Chat Noir continues to freely explore the outer limits of what it can be.

Chat Noir: Hyperuranion

Read "Hyperuranion" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Celebrating its seventh release—and third album by this London-based band for Rare Noise—is an eclectic union of progressive rock, krautrock, jazz and ambient-electronica with pathways into futuristic techno-like permutations. In addition, pioneering Norwegian trumpeter Nils Petter Molvaer performs on four tracks. At times the program conveys sonic characteristics of a cathedral recording due to resonating licks ...


Chat Noir: Hyperuranion

Read "Hyperuranion" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Coming up with a title for a recording is an art form, and creative oddities pop up regularly. In 1963 bassist Charles Mingus presented Black Saint and the Sinner Lady (Impulse! Records); 2014 saw the release of saxophonist Branford Marsalis' Four MFs Playin' Tunes (Marsalis Music). And now the group Chat Noir moves in a more ...

Chat Noir: Nine Thoughts For One Word

Read "Nine Thoughts For One Word" reviewed by John Ephland

There's something about RareNoise Records that keeps you on your toes. Listen to any title side by side, and you're likely to end up scratching your head, if not enjoying a gentle smile or subtle rhapsody. Okay, some of the music can be scabrous, perhaps unlistenable. But guess what? It all fits under the RN moniker, ...

Pinocchio Live Club - Firenze - 14.11.2009 Theremin e campionamenti, suoni d'atmosfera e rumori per l'avvio del concerto dei Chat Noir, trio romano con già tre dischi alle spalle e il progetto di interpretare la formazione - seguendo l'E.S.T.

Chat Noir: Difficult to See You

Read "Difficult to See You" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Avevamo avvertito, un paio d'anni fa, che era opportuno seguire il trio Chat Noir, quando ascoltammo il loro buon disco d'esordio, Adoration. E infatti i Chat Noir non si smentiscono, uscendo adesso con questo ottimo lavoro, nel quale mostrano di essere ulteriormente cresciuti e di avere ormai una personalità definita, personale, multiforme. Ispirato alle più recenti ...


Christoph Irniger Quartet: Chat Noir

Read "Chat Noir" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Svizzero al 100%, Chat Noir è un album che potrebbe benissimo essere stato registrato a New York. Contemporaneo nelle composizioni, nelle sonorità, nel linguaggio. Metropolitano. Irniger ha una vena compositiva felice, che non rifugge la complessità armonica e ritmica ma che mantiene sempre viva una notevole linea melodica, ed il suo quartetto suona molto bene. La ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
