Cédric Hanriot proposes with this project music open to the cross-currents of jazz, hip hop, and groove. The music is distinguished by the addition of electronic textures that interact with acoustic instruments, thus introducing a cinematic dimension to the trio. In addition to Hanriot’s original compositions, in which groove and interaction are the main focus, the band playfully explores famous international themes taken from the pop of Ed Sheeran, the rock of Nirvana or the electronic music of Massive Attack.
The beginnings of CH3 date back to 2009 when Hanriot revisited a number of French popular songs on his highly acclaimed debut album “French Stories” with Terri Lyne Carrington and John Patitucci. 11 years and numerous concerts all over the world later, a new repertoire and line-up promise to follow up on the earlier success. A new album, produced by Charles Burchell (Omar Sosa, Braxton Cook), is set for a 2021 release.
Cédric Hanriot is a French pianist, composer and music producer. A graduate from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, he worked in 2015 on 8 songs of the Grammy Award winning album “Beautiful Life” by the American singer Dianne Reeves. Over the past 15 years, he had the pleasure to collaborate with many internationally renowned jazz artists such as Herbie Hancock, Gregory Porter, Esperanza Spalding or Donny McCaslin. Having played as sideman and leader on various tours throughout the world, he has been able to sharpen his unique style incorporating acoustic as well as electronic elements.
