Chat Noir is Michele Cavallari on piano, Luca Fogagnolo on bass and Giuliano Ferrari on drums. For the past 14 years, the trio has performed original compositions unconfined by any etiquettes of genre. The opening track of the acclaimed first album Adoration (Splasc(h) Records, 2006) appears in the soundtrack of Cristina Comencini’s La Bestia nel Cuore (Don’t Tell) nominated for the best foreign language film category at the 78th Academy Awards in 2006.
Universal Music released the following three albums:
Decoupage (2007), Difficult to See You (2008), featuring Gianluca Petrella on trombone, and Weather Forecasting Stone (2011). The new Elec3cities is released by Rarenoise Records in April 2014. 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.
