Review:

"Hat: Hi Ha (2005 [2006], Fresh Sound New Talent): One thing I'm sure of is
that sooner or later Sergi Sirvent will wind up producing an A-list album.
This piano quartet with Jordi Matas on guitar may be the one. Right now my
main reservation is his vocal on the closer, "Everyday Is a New Beginning."
He's not much of a singer, although he tries to make up for it in passion.
Reminds me a bit of Annette Peacock, but not as skillful. But his command of the piano continues to advance, and I have no complaints about the Fender Rhodes he credits first either. His compositions offer interesting ideas, and he's moved to the point where it's hard to pigeonhole him. He has his own sound, he's prolific, and he's on a role. It's just a matter of time before he gets some recognition."

"La música és pura transgressió. Més enllà dels convencionalismes i dels
codis preestablerts -comuns a tot tipus de llenguatge artístic-, la música
necessita transformar-se per transmetre noves sensacions. L'evolució del
jazz en els últims cent anys és un clar exemple d'aquesta naturalesa mutant
que l'ha anat canviant de fesomia. Aquesta circumstància provoca que entre
els seus practicants no sigui estrany trobar ments inquietes obstinades a
explorar tot tipus de rutes, dreceres, itineraris i marges que l'avinguda
central del jazz posa a la seva disposició.

Entre els músics exploradors sobresurt el nom del prolífic Sergi Sirvent
(piano i composició). En poc més de quatre anys són ja diversos els
projectes col·lectius que ha engegat, a més de la seva carrera com a
solista. El penúltim és aquest grup anomenat Hat. Jordi Matas (guitarra),
Marc Cuevas (baix) i Òscar Domènech (bateria) completen aquest quartet que
desprèn una rabiosa contemporaneïtat alhora que articula un treball d'equip
extraordinàriament cohesionat, tot i les múltiples referències de què es
nodreix. Tan revelador com impactant."
