daniel zimmermann homme tête de chou.jpg

Indispensable trombonist on the French scene for 20 years, traveling companion of Thomas de Pourquery, Le Sacre du Tympan, Nougaro, Manu Dibango, Tony Allen and many others, Daniel Zimmermann is launching his 3rd album with Label Bleu in a very personal rereading of the work of Serge Gainsbourg, with the musicians of his multi-haloed album "Montagnes Russes".


Lively, playful, moving, the ensemble comes and goes between quirky arrangements and the creation of real new pieces, made from ingredients taken from the original work of the legendary singer-composer. Concentrated around Gainsbourg before Gainsbarre, the most creative from the point of view of melodies, the 4 strong heads combine the raw energy of a rock band with the creative and fiery freedom of jazz. From Bonnie & Clyde stranded in the Sahelian lands in azimuthal Comic Strip, from poignant Lost Loves to languorous Things Things, from New York USA to Melody Nelson as if suspended above implacable grooves, they multiply the winks to the master to better get by divert, infusing his spirit of mischief and irreverence into their every flight.


With Daniel Zimmermann (trombone), Pierre Durand (guitar), Jérôme Regard (bass), Julien Charlet (drums)

Let's Get Lost

American comedy-drama by Bruce Weber about the life of jazz trumpeter Chet Baker

1988 – Duration: 2h00


WithDexter Gordon,François Cluzet


Let's Get Lost Chet Baker Bruce Weber

Chet Baker, jazz trumpeter, began his career in the 1950s with Stan Getz, Charlie Parker… He gained great fame with Gerry Mulligan, then settled in Europe before seeing his career disrupted by alcohol and drugs . He died accidentally in 1988 in Amsterdam. Based on various testimonies, interviews, recording sessions, archive images and film extracts, Bruce Weber, renowned fashion photographer, reconstructs the turbulent life of the trumpeter. Fascinated, he lingers on the worn face offered by the musician during his last confidences, to better let the beauty of the young man burst... all cradled by the delicate, fragile sounds, at the limit of the break, of his trumpet and his singing, his two favorite modes of expression, surprisingly close to each other...

“Let's get lost is above all an immense hymn of love to music. The evanescent and plaintive trumpet rises above the black and white images of a dislocated Baker, drowned in heroin, but who finds, in contact with the instrument, his pride as a musician. A moving documentary. » Gerard Camy (Telerama)

Salle Apollo 

Photo blakettes 2023(2).jpg

It's a bebop hardbop jazz group created by four women who are madly hooked on this diabolical American jazz born between the 50s and the 60s, on the east coast of the United States of America. The Blakettes honor the founding fathers and mothers of this energetic and romantic music that is Hard bop.


Thanks to the multitude of composers, arrangers and performers of that time, Les Blakettes draw, revisit and cook a rich and lively repertoire and invite you on a journey to the heart of 60's jazz, paying tribute with passion to its creators: Art Blakey, Wayne Shorter, Bobby Timmons, Yusef Lateef, Grant Green, Cannonball Adderley, Oscar Pettiford, McCoy Tyner, Cedar Walton and many more...

Paris Gadjo Club: the marriage of choro and gypsy swing, a musical bridge between Paris and Rio!


Christophe Davot, guitarist, is at the initiative of this unique project that unites Brazilian music with gypsy jazz. By this happy union of the two musical genres, Paris Gadjo Club pays a vibrant tribute to the musicians of the tradition of gypsy swing, as well as to the great interpreters of choro, samba and bossa nova.


They will be accompanied by the formidable singer Hélène Argo, with her unique violist voice, warm and full of sensitivity.


No show or chatter here, but notes that make sense and tell a story. Serenity, finesse, sensitivity and musicality are the hallmarks of this perfectly balanced quintet.

Swingin' Affair

Swingin' Affair makes its soundtrack

The Underground | Tuesday 31 october | 8:30 p.m. |

Yves Furet Cultural Center


As you will have understood, the theme of the film music repertoire.

To make the game more fun, we have chosen the music originally farthest from jazz (no Lalo Shiffrin, nor Pink Panther or even Mr. Legrand), the challenge consisting in making music so foreign to jazz swing jazz than Star Wars, Titanic, The Gendarme in St Tropez or La Boum… And believe us, it's not easy!


Here, Darth Vader and Duke Ellington meet at the Cotton Club bar. The Titanic flows under the swaying accents of a cool jazz quartet. The Tontons flingueurs sip their twist-guts on Ipanema beach. The Good the Bad and the Ugly have put down their guns and begin a most peaceful jazz waltz... And many other irreverent diversions!


It is therefore these improbable scenarios that “Swingin’ Affair” offers you, taking advantage of all the possibilities offered by jazz music and the talent of four instrumentalists!


With Philippe Petit (organ), Philippe Chagne and Olivier Defays (saxophones), Sylvain Glévarec (drums)
