refined, never casual..."
Musica Jazz - Bruno Schiozzi
"...what strikes most is the simplicity and the elegance of his music:
this makes Imprinting a very interesting work."
Jazzitalia.net - Luca Labrini
Francesco Chebat, born in Trento (Italy) in 1978,
is a very interesting and talented pianist and composer. His career started at an
early age, when he played in clubs in Milan. He played with many important musicians,
such as Dave Weckl,
Trovesi, Sergio Orlandi, Giovanni Falzone,
Maxx Furian, Emilio Soana, Paolo Tomelleri, JW Orchestra (directed by Marco Gotti),
and many others.
He played in many festivals and jazz clubs:
Blue Note Milano,
Jazz Club Bergamo, Ivrea Jazz Club, Musica Festival (Bergamo), Festival della Cultura
(Bergamo), locano Film Festival, Livraga Jazz, Iseo Jazz, Festival Suonintorno (Bergamo),
Brianza Open jazz festival, Lario Festival, Valtidone festival...
In 2007 he releases his first CD, "Imprinting",
with Attilio Zanchi (double bass) and Marco Castiglioni (drums). This
work has received excellent reviews and showed his skills both as a pianist and
composer: all the tracks of the CD are written by Chebat, who choose the traditional
acoustic trio as the best way to perform his music (more info).
He works with vocalist Martha J. as pianist and arranger (more info
released already three albums: "That's it!"
(classic jazz songs, with Robrto Piccolo on double bass and Stefano Bertoli
on drums), "No one but you" (classic jazz songs, duo vioce and
piano) and "Dance your way to heaven" (original tunes, with Robrto Piccolo on double
bass, Stefano Bertoli on drums and Cisco Portone on percussions).
With Gianni Satta (trumpet), Francesco founded a band inspired by the famous
Miles Davis's album "Tutu" and in January 2010
they release their first CD: "Promenade", a mix of acoustic and electric jazz that
represents an exhibition of the ways they have been playing together during these
years. All the sogns of this album are composed and arranged by Francesco Chebat.
He works with JW Orchestra directed by arranger/composer/saxophonist Marco Gotti,
also playing in a new CD that will be soon released.
He plays with saxophonist Beppe Aliprandi in "Blue Totem", a musical project
that mixes ethnic music coming from Africa and Middle-East with jazz.
He plays with actor Valerio Bongiorno: most of all in "Numbert, il passeggero del
secolo" (Numbert, the century's passenger), performed with success in many theatres
of north of Italy. In this show Francesco makes counterpoint of the monologue melting
written music, improvisation and special effects. He is actually a "second actor".
He has also payed in the Vanni Stefanini trio, latin-american rythms specialist.
This trio, with Attilio Zanchi on double bass, performed at
Blue Note Milano
and in 2004 released Nobody knows.
