Bête Noire was formed in Melbourne in 2015 by the legendary Australian drummer Graham Morgan and vocalist Jan Tankard in collaboration with Olaf Scott on piano and Craig Newman on bass.
These four consummate musicians collaborate to explore and rework familiar, and less familiar jazz compositions to create a compelling quartet in which the shared joy of each other’s skills is a pleasure to behold.
Influenced by masters of jazz and Latin music, from Duke Ellington, Thelonius Monk, Benny Golson and McCoy Tyner to the Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona and Spanish flamenco there is also abundant room for improvisation as they delve in to many facets of jazz of which they all, and often guest musicians, contribute.
Bête Noire will transport you deep to a NYC jazz club, then add a bold dash of Spanish emotion with colour and humour, they will then twist the top off with Cuban rhythms and drumming that leave audiences in awe.
