‘NOIR’ is an exploration of cabaret, chanson and melancholy storytelling, moving between jazz, folk and classical styles. I had a great time recording these songs with friends, and listening to iconic French singers such as Barbara. I particularly enjoyed arranging the string parts for two of the songs, and a violin solo version of a jazz standard Invitation. The chanson Aupres de ma blonde features a fiddle tune of my own and we filmed it at the studio.
