Since 2003 Laurent Mignard has been leading a dream team of 15 musicians at the heart of a rich, exceptional repertoire that rises above ages and styles: pure Standards, extracts from Suites, Sacred Music… Challenges are always just around the corner for Laurent Mignard since he has also presented new pieces, created from unfinished original scores as well as expanded interpretations of rare recordings.
Live music played live on stage. The more it’s played the hotter it gets! That’s why Laurent Mignard and Paul Bessone waited until 2009 to record and release “Duke Ellington is Alive”. This first little jewel went on to be awarded the “The Hot Club de France’s” Grand Prize the following year.
Laurent Mignard and Paul Bessone agree that The Duke Orchestra should be recorded live on stage. On “Battle Royal”, for example, a partnership was set up with the famous “Festival Jazz à Vienne”. They also believe that Ellington’s music could and should be shared with a larger public. It followed that Laurent Maynard’s concerts have been broadcast on the French TV channel TF1. As for Paul Bessone he granted license rights to Sony Music to enable the fame of the orchestra to spread throughout the world with «Ellington French Touch».
To celebrate the 40’th anniversary of Duke Ellington’s heritage, Laurent Mignard Duke Orchestra and Mercedes Ellington presented the Duke Ellington Sacred Concert on October 1st, 2014 in the church of Madeleine – Paris. More than 1.200 people were united in the same fervor by the dream-team of the Duke Orchestra, Mercedes Ellington, the vocalists Emmanuel Pi Djob, Nicolle Rochelle and Sylvia Howard, the tap dancer Fabien Ruiz and more than 120 chorists.
In 2018, with “Jazzy Poppins”, Laurent Mignard Duke Orchestra present Duke Ellington Plays Mary Poppins but in French. The original album features recordings of tunes from the 1964 musical film Mary Poppins arranged by Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. But this program was never been on stage. We produced this incredible live session.
