Headed to one of my favorite cities in the world with a great bunch of Quebecois-

Melbourne Fest

In between performing, Benoît and friends will present two gigs at The Toff in Town, freely traversing late 60s to early 70s psychedelic-afro-funk-jazz and standards from the era.

Composer and Conductor BENOÎT CHAREST

In 2003 the animated French feature The Triplets of Belleville swept the globe, raking up dozens of awards and nominations—not to mention the hearts of countless admirers—along the way. Much of it came down to the Oscar-nominated score by Benoît Charest, which grabbed audiences by the ears and dragged them into the streets of 1920s Paris and Le Jazz Hot.

Benoît is back, and in Australia for the first time. With his Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville he recreates live the original score as the film itself is beamed onto the big screen. Saddle up for the misadventures of a kidnapped Tour de France cyclist, his would-be rescuer grandmother and the titular trio of larger-than life divas, all accompanied by the speakeasy-slick sounds of un orchestre sans pareil.

This was such a blast to do. Benoit Chartest, the composer, brought a group of bad ass players from Montreal known as Le Terrible Orchestra de Belleville to LA to perform the music and foley along with the film for Grand Performances, downtown LA. I had to do some serious sight-reading for this one.
