The 7th Treponem Pal album celebrates the band’s thirtiest birthday with original Pal tracks and a bunch of covers twisted their own way.
Years have passed but time has no power on their music. On the opposite, it is all timesless and of an absolute vitality. Treponem Pal’s music has always been a loud patchwork. Extreme modernity and corrosive old school merge permanently.
The band has become a master in the art of juggling with riffs and words, the art of forging sounds and hammering beats, the art of combining spontaneity and machines. Rockers’ Vibes is in the vein, but also has a few surprises in store.
Laurent Mignard Duke Orchestra present Duke Ellington Plays Mary Poppins but in French. The original album features recordings of tunes from the 1964 musical film Mary Poppins arranged by Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. But this program was never been on stage. We produced this incredible live session.
This “Jazzy Poppins” may reach a wide audience, from neophytes to jazz fans, as an opportunity to (re)discover an exceptional and timeless work.
« Fabulous ! » – Mercedes Ellington
Paul Péchenart, singer songwriter and cofunder of the legendary french rock band nammed Dogs presents a thoughtful, sincere album, at times intimate, but always rock.
He plays the guitar along with his prized bandmates: Esteban Avellan (Bien à Toi) on bass and Paul Péchenart Jr (Guerilla Poubelle) on drums.
Anyone with ADHD (or ‘TDAH’ in French) tends to simultaneously put forth a wide array of thoughts.
We’re not sure whether or not Allan Hurd has ADHD, but what we do know is that his debut album is chock-full of different ideas. And many more are on their way, because this concept album is apparently the first of a trilogy. Not a bad way to kick-start a career.
A meeting between Johnny Cash and the Stray Cats, overlooked by Lou Reed.
I’M HUNGRY includes 11 songs. 2 previously unreleased tracks by the north-American writer Jack Clark, an original French Rock song by Paul Péchenart (Dogs) & Jay, 1 instrumental country song by Jean-Yves Lozac’h (Charlie McCoy), an original French love song by Marie-France Floury, some original Blues Rock songs by Jay, a revamped traditional song, and «Lust For Life» (Iggy Pop) cover with Paul Pechenart Junior (Guerilla Poubelle) on guitar.
All those songs are played as if the musicians where born in a town between Memphis and Nashville with a subway network.
Dutch Oven is a warm sounding folk, Americana and country album where roots is the key word.
You’ll find traditional songs like CAMPTOWN RACES, one of the first pop songs ever written in the middle of the 19th century by Stephen Foster, and other very successful adaptations that make the works timeless.
Here, the version of Joy Division’s LOVE WILL TEAR US APART is literally incredible. Jay put a modal banjo drone played with a rock feel to it along with Paul Péchenart (ex-Dogs ) on an old Gibson acoustic.
The Rolling Stones, Leadbelly, Reverend Gary Davis and Merle Haggard are also interpreted as if they were all originals coming from the same small town seated along the Blue Ridge Parkway

Laurent Mignard has accomplished a herculean task.Because he didn’t have access to the musical scores, he transcribed everything from Duke’s recordings! More than a note for note transcription he made sure that he kept close to the spirit of music which is simple and complex, obvious and extremely refined at the same time, where brilliant soloists ride proudly over the music.
To celebrate the 40’th anniversary of Duke Ellington’s heritage, Laurent Mignard Duke Orchestra and Mercedes Ellington presented the Duke Ellington Sacred Concert on October 1st, 2014 in the church of Madeleine – Paris.
