Le Chat Lunatique at the Santa Fe Performance Exchange - Part 2

As unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an
 addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to 
smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django
 Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate 
through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, doowop, and
“anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously 
reworked standards alike.
