Nouvel album "L'Odyssée"

FRED PALLEM & LE SACRE DU TYMPAN “L’ODYSSÉE” + GUESTS : CHRISTOPHE MONNIOT, THOMAS DE POURQUERY + SURPRISE

A fabulous sound and film odyssey 

Eight years after the joyful “SoundTrax” and after brilliantly revisiting the repertoires of François de Roubaix, Blaxploitation soundtracks and cult animation themes, composer/conductor/arranger/multi-instrumentalist (bass, piano, guitar) Fred Pallem is back with an album he composed entirely. For this ecstatic “Oddyssey”, which marks the twentieth anniversary of this supersonic big band, Le Sacre du Tympan is for the first time enhanced with strings. Fred Pallem takes up with what has made him the enfant terrible of big band jazz, deliberately eclectic, refusing to limit himself to one single genre.

Invoking the spirit of those who have inspired him, he’s composed a series of epic pieces. Here, sparkling brass instrument contrasts with tense violins, there the groove of a raging bass fights against menacing strings, Ornett Coleman infiltrates Ennio Morricone’s universe, Bernard Hermann mixes with the saturated colors of electric Miles, Lalo Schifrin marries Fela, Memphis Sound cohabits with John Barry…

Close your eyes, voyaging listeners, and imagine the movie this music inspires. Embark on an enchanting, entrancing sound and film journey.
