Le Tigre des Platanes

Le Tigre des Platanes Marc Démareau Fabien Duscombs Mathias Imbert Nathanaël Renoux
Le Tigre des Platanes is an indestructible animal that has been roaring and exploring unlikely jungles for two decades.

 

Rhésus Machin

The apocalypse is never far away in the world of Le Tigre des Platanes. This is what gives their music its sense of urgency, of a scream cutting through the din of bombs, an island of irreducible pleasure in conversation with the inaccessible complexity of the world they haven't yet swallowed.
With Rhésus Machin, this indomitable animal whistles a resolutely punk jazz. Sometimes humorous (the animal is playful), sometimes tender (the animal is sentimental), it has above all the soul of a wild animal, and the composition, free from any pre-set rules, except for a few mathematical formulae that have not yet been solved, is at the service of its four musicians, like the four cardinal points of an animal that only bites them, because the animal is wild, greedy and alive.
Le Tigre des Platanes' current repertoire consists mainly of personal and (very) original compositions (by Marc Démereau and Mathias Imbert).
There are a few reinterpretations that pay tribute to the hot European free jazz scene of the 70s (Misha Mengelberg, Willem Breuker) or to recently deceased musicians (Julee Cruise and Angelo Badalamenti).
Missing is a recorded tribute to the much-missed Jamie Branch.
In concert on stage, Le Tigre des Platanes evokes this great loss.
All these tracks have been written since Nathanaël Renoux joined the band in March 2020
