Pépin et Plume is saxophonist and composer Alban Darche’s new label.
"By a process as mysterious as the transformation of egg whites into meringue, jazz has always been associated with the Christmas spirit. Whether it is shiny or sweet, kitsch or scoffer, most Christmas carols are standards as well as traditional. So this music everyone knows superficially interests Alban Darche in depth.
As a big fan of Tim Burton, he’s built his own unique vision of Christmas, and visit Christmas Town along with old accomplices, with the firm intention of redoing the interior decoration without touching the old walls. One thing’s for sure: like with good old Jack Skellington, Christmas will never be the same."
