« After five years of intense rehearsing, gigging, changing and re-arranging songs, live-testing, abandoning, approving, and a long thought process concerning the best way to lay down our music on record, we decided to work with the magicians Olivier Cussac and Arthur Ower and record live at Condorcet Studios, Toulouse. The only way of keeping the essence of our sound intact is to play together, allow a tune to live from start to finish, with no “re-recording”, no isolation booths and no headphones. We then chose the versions in which the global sound was most exciting, in order to blend them into a coherent and meaningful stream of music


Pulcinella is claiming for an extravagant music, generous and dynamic.

For more than 8 years the band Pulcinella multiplies concerts, tours, encounters, thanks to the trust given by several professional networks and shows organizers (festivals, cultural centers, national scenes, clubs, , public places, bars …). With more than 350 concerts, the band had the chance to open the show for Get The Blessing, Akosh S., Julien Lourau, Magyd Cherfi, Renaud Garcia Fons, Bojan Z, André Minvielle, Bireli Lagrène, Marc Ducret, Jim Black, Michel Portal, la Campagnie des Musiques à Ouïr… Pulcinella also collaborated with Emile Parisien's Quartet (Victoires du Jazz 2009), the singer Leïla Martial (1° prize at the Concours National de Jazz de La Défense 2009), the singer Hervé Suhubiette, the Grolektif de Lyon, traditional Indian musician Debojyoti Sanyal and Sougata Roy Chowdhury, the Hungarian band Dzsindzsa (album « Panthers’ Play » on label BMC, released October 2009).

Pulcinella: Bestiole

Read "Bestiole" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Pulcinella shares its name with a character from the Commedia dell'Arte--he figures rather charmingly on the band's website--and declares its mix of jazz, rock, tango and Baltic traditions to be “delocalised jazz."
