Le Gros Cube is getting pampered!
For this new program, three singers, two pianists, a second drummer and a light engineer are joining the team. Alban Darche reshaped his orchestra to help serve Queen, the legendary British rock band, and create more modern, re-arranged and ‘rocked-up’ pieces.
Far from being a suite of covers, le Gros Cube make some well-chosen songs theirs and aim at defending a universal music: PoP music. in Freddie Mercury’s shoes are three singers, three personalities: Thomas de Pourquery’s extravaganza, F.M.’s poetry and Arnaud Guillou’s seriousness.
le Gros Cube thinks big and goes all-out for a large- scale creation following in the footsteps of the over- the-top British band.


Alban Darche's "gros cube"
Amongst all the machine-linked metaphors used in the history of large groups in jazz, that of Alban Darche’s Gros Cube (literally “Big Bike”) is unusual, but absolutely perfect for describing this brand new band formed in nantes, France,
in 2002. it can purr, snore, or roar in turn; it can even gleam and sparkle, but it never goes over the top. The impression it leaves is less one of a Formula 1 engine than that of a gleeful ballet of bikers out for a good time, swept along in a masterly choreography. Alban Darche succeeds in inventing the most improbable combinations of instruments out of the strictly classical instrumentation of the typical Big Band; he’s constantly putting sections together then dismounting them, as if it were all a musical meccano and he’s a child “screwing” the new sounds together with his particularly gifted hands.
each of the 16 members of the band – all soloists – seems galvanised into action by a strong sense of liberty, thanks to the roaring breakaways the coherent and spectacular orchestration allows them. As for the collective harmonised parts, they all show an outstanding “vocal” quality that is virtually unknown in current instrumental jazz.
