In order to celebrate the centenary of Boris Vian's birth, Arnaud Marzorati gives an account of the relationship between the furious creators of the late 19th century and this artiste intoxicated with liberty, mad keen on jazz whom it would take a long time to be considered one of the most inventive of the 20th century. Vian is the art of the absurd, a regenerating libertarian, a schoolboy man of letters with an agile laugh who writes simple stories to enrage serious people, seeking to annoy the middle class and conventions. A writer, composer and author of 450 chansons, he had a brief career as a singer. After his death at the age of 39 in 1959, it would take time to construct the legend of him as a genius emerging too early, a precursor of the rebel values of the sixties, of post May 1968 hedonism or of the individualism of the 1980s... For this homage album, Les Lunaisiens have chosen to feature Vian's fetish instrument: the trumpet. Surrounding this, a double bass, accordion, bandoneon and ukulele rejoice and revisit some at times forgotten standards. Agathe Peyrat is the warm, lyrical voice, complementing that of Arnaud Marzorati, masculine and male. This Highway Code completes the unique history of the 'French chanson' that Les Lunaisiens have for years been retracing.
