TODHE TODHE is ALEA's 6th production, and a new step for the Medium Ensemble, after Sisyphe and Exo.
The combo is now reduced to 6 horn players, a very special combination between piano and vibraphone, and a highly efficient rhythm section, all exceptional soloists of the contemporary French jazz scene.
Based on a challenging repertoire, all written by the pianist-leader, the music is based on a very special group sound, and highly inspired soloists, often surrounded by collective play.
Nine compositions, written at the end of a two year residence program at the Théâtre de Saint Quentin en Yvelines in 2017 and 2018.
