Alban Darche

Album after album, through an ever increasing number of line-ups and experiences, Alban Darche has been building a highly original, free-spirited and coherent body of work. He's the ingenious leader of the AD3 trio (with bassist Frédéric Chiffoleau and drummer Emmanuel Birault) and of Gros Cube (formerly Le Cube), a 15-strong big band featuring the finest jazz talents in the country, with several albums to its name, the latest dating from 2007 and featuring vocalist Katerine.

Awards

French Django d'OR 2005 (yolk collective) "Trickster" cd of the year 2007 Jazzman "Polar Mood" cd of the year 2008 Jazzmagazine

As the title of the album suggests it “trickster”, the band blurs with trick and fraud the musical boundaries. ” Lionel Eskenazi JAZZMAN (FR)
