Octet la Nocturne - Premier Album

Octet la Nocturne is a Montpellierain jazz band that has been performing on stages in the south of France for several years (but not only). Eight musicians, a formation openly inspired by the Octet of Charles Mingus. Starting from an identical instrumentation, but at the service of original compositions, the Octet creates a music rooted in New York jazz of the 50’s but objectively modern. It is this mixture that makes La Nocturne, the improvisations go beyond the instrumental chorus, the band is always ready to react to the rantings of the conductor, however surprising they may be. For a band, recording the first album is a first step, it’s a first goal to achieve. We have existed for more than 5 years, it is time to freeze in time the music of the Octet. This album will undoubtedly be a springboard for the future of the band, it will also allow to start thinking about the new repertoire and the new album. But this is another story.. Benefiting from the financial and professional support of the Odradek Record label, the Octet la Nocturne has the opportunity to record its first album, it will be recorded in a way that could be described as "old school", namely in a single room. The rendering will be faithful to the fiery performances of the Octet. The recording is scheduled for the beginning of summer 2022 and the album will be released in early 2023.

Allocation of funds

The album will be recorded in co-production with Odradek Records. The Octet needs 4000 euros to complete the project (Recording, Mixing, Mastering, Visuals, Distribution...) An additional 1000 euros for the creation of vinyls. A possible surplus would allow us to pay for sending the counterparties and the journey to register in Italy.
