about this album

Recorded in january 2020 at Peninsula Studio by Jonathan Marcoz, these four new tracks extend latest Le Gros Cube#2 ten tracks album.

In the early 2000s, Alban Darche rose to prominence as the head of a large orchestra to which he had given the name of Le Gros Cube. This training in original instrumentation revealed the originality of his talents as a composer, thanks to the release of several remarkable albums, including one co-signed with singer Philippe Katerine. After experiences at the head of hybrid formations and various collaborations (notably with his American counterpart John Hollenbeck), here he presents a Gros Cube number 2, whose instrumentation modeled on the great American jazz orchestras allows him to explore with happiness the tradition of the big band, with a lively and inspired pen, at the head of an international orchestra whose cast shines by excellence.

With Le Gros Cube #2, I know that I have a fully functional orchestra at my disposal, the set up will make the audience feel at home, giving more space to include more demanding pieces. That's what interests me: coming from common ground to bring more sophisticated ideas. Offering very personal echo in a familiar landscape, or building a complex landscape with obvious tones.
