Sandra Cipolat Trio

poetic jazz

Sandra Cipolat, a young and talented pianist who graduated from the jazz class of the Montpellier Conservatory, proposes with her trio compositions inspired by the melodies of cinema. Influenced by artists such as Dave Holland, Herbie Hancock or Tigran Hamasyan, and discovered last year in the Grand Orchestre de Jazz d’Occitanie (the GROô 1st edition), she has set herself the goal of retranscribing the emotions and moods evoked by the great works of the 7th art…

This Trio was born on the occasion of the opening concert of the 12th edition of the Koa Jazz Festival, in 2019. On October 2021, the trio won the Nîmes Métropole Jazz Festival springboard for the festival’s 15h edition. The affinities and the cohesion which emerges from this concert push the three musicians to continue this musical and cinematographic adventure. The musical identity of the group is tinged with improvisation and asymmetric rhythms as much as with familiar melodies and poetic ballads.

Sandra Cipolat Trio - Final Cut

Press review

JAZZ MAGAZINE – JULY 2021
“It’s like a program music, inspired by childhood or abroad movies. The style is kind of 70’s style, sophisticated jazz fusion for intimacy gig:   left hand unisons, bass lines keyboard, arpeggios… Also, the willing to express nuances and lyricism with the piano […]  In the end, a very positive impression, with a composition inspired by “North by Northwest” by Alfred Hitchcock, as the icing on the cake, that thrilled the audience and I.

RADIO PAYS D’HÉRAULT – AUGUST 2021
“For a captivating jazz gig, Sandra Cipolat rode her whinny piano, playing bitterly to get her beast move on a slippery sheet, helped by her silver strings friend Léo Chazallet, born with finger strings, supporting strongly the piano, both joined by Julien Grégoire, the rebellious captain that got a stick for an arm.Read +
