ECM says:

Hypnotic, magnetic new album by Anouar Brahem which adds a new dimension to our knowledge of this exceptional Tunisian musician. "Le pas du chat noir" gives the clearest indication yet of the work of Brahem as composer and features a spacious "chamber music" that resonates with the freshness of improvisation. The instrumentation is unique: oud, piano, accordion. Brahem's writing for this combination is highly evocative, meticulously controlled and sparse. Half of the magic, as he notes, resides in the not-played, in the marvellous mingling of overtones, sounds that rise from the piano to blend with the warm tones of the oud and the breath of the accordion's bellows. "There's something beautiful about silence, and Anouar Brahem says it exquisitely... In the end, what matters most is Brahem's continual creative excursions, finding the undertones of tradition in a modern world, filling in silence with learned levity." - Derek Beres, Global Rhythm
