Médéric Collignon Short Info

Médéric Collignon, notoriously, is not one to follow the tracks of others.
Known for his shouting, his deliberately trashy bouts and his flashes of genius, he has
taken on this monument, without real irreverence, taking Miles Davis's version as a
starting point, but as we could expect, with some insolence. Backing him is a power trio
(named Jus de Bocse in jest) which sounds like a big band. The result is disarming, and
has attracted a lot of reactions. It is a kind of artificial, multicolored opera, dense and
powerful.
Médéric, the enfant terrible, is almost at home at the Victoires de la Musique awards: he
has been nominated for the prize several times, and has played for the ceremonies on
several occasions with the band Le Sacre du Tympan. He won the prize of revelation of
the year in 2007, and the one of the best band in 2010, with the “Jus de Bocse” with the album, “Shangri-Tunkashi-La ”, recorded with “Jus de Bocse” tribute to Miles
Davis and his electric period.
A new album "MoOvies" will be release in November 2014 which revisits the film soundtracks of Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones or David Shire.
