Chat Noir, Nine Thoughts for One Word
Original Chat Noir founding members piano-keyboardist Michele Cavallari and bassist Luca Fogagnolo are for this album joined by electronics composer-producer Jan Peter Schwalm on electronics, beats, keys and acoustic guitar. Daniel Calvi guest appears on guitars for three numbers; vocalist Alessandro Tomaselli adds his vocals and lyrics for one number.
It is music with definite soundscaped ambiance, some drive and a wide gamut of electronic timbres. It is an album of substance and sophistication, yet an effective cosmic flow and saturation.
Anyone who is a fan of such things done well, as I am, will find the album to their liking, I surely think. Give it your ears!
