Cotonete, a French jazz-funk band formed in 2007, has gained recognition for their energetic live performances and innovative approach to music. With Victoire De La Musique, they continue to push boundaries and captivate audiences with their dynamic sound.

Throughout the album, Cotonete effortlessly blends elements of jazz, funk, disco, and soul to create a rich tapestry of sound. The band’s tight instrumentation and impeccable musicianship shine through each track, creating a cohesive and engaging listening experience.

From the infectious grooves of “Barry” to the smooth melodies of “Escola Francesa,” each song on Victoire De La Musique offers something unique. The band’s ability to seamlessly transition between different styles and moods keeps listeners engaged from start to finish.

The standout tracks on this album include the funky “Layla,” featuring soulful vocals and an irresistible bassline, as well as the upbeat and danceable “Tempo dos Mestres.” These songs exemplify Cotonete’s ability to create music that is both catchy and thought-provoking.

With Victoire De La Musique, Cotonete has crafted an album that pays homage to their musical influences while also pushing the boundaries of contemporary jazz-funk. Whether you’re a fan of jazz or simply appreciate good music, this album is sure to delight your ears and leave you wanting more.

“After releasing numerous and now collectable standalone singles, plus some now famous collaborations with Dimitri from Paris, 2019 saw Parisian based 8 piece, Cotonete release their first long player in 15 years! Under the guidance of Melik Bencheikh from Paris’ rare record emporium, Heart Beat Vinyl. The dark moody mover “Super-Vilains” came out to great success on Heavenly Sweetness.

After playing some packed live shows around France and the UK, including the acclaimed Sunday at Dingwalls in Camden, hosted by Gilles Peterson and Patrick Forge.

Somewhere along this part of the journey, they came across the Brazilian music legend and vocal powerhouse, Di Melo. He softened their souls, and from this love affair came the album “Atemporal”. Released on Favourite Recordings, this 8 track album would end up being sampled by Canadian superstar Drake, for his 2023 album ‘For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition’

So now into 2024, and we have Cotonete full length number two. They’ve enlisted the producer Guts to guide them towards sunshine, groove, warmth and all the colours in his rainbow.
With their tongues firmly in their cheeks, the album is titled ‘Victoire de la Musique’ – a dig at the annual French music award ceremony.

Taking the band deep, producer Guts showed them new and exciting rhythms from all corners of the world. The record’s first example of this is ‘Venezuela’, a track directly inspired by the jazz funk from the great Caribbean nation.

Other key musical exploration on the record can be attributed to the late composer Francis Lai. On ‘Cinq Pour L’aventure’ – an almost 15 minute epic monster showcasing the band’s love for 70’s French movies soundtracks. “L’aventure c’est l’aventure”, was a movie by one of the most famous French directors Claude Lelouch The single from the soundtrack was sung by French music superstar Johnny Halliday.

Guests are scattered very tastefully across the album, on the only cover version of the record, the Brazilian master Jorge Ben’s ‘Bebete Vãobora’, Sabrina Malheiros was invited to lend her lungs. The daughter of Azymuth’s Alex Malheiros helps join perfectly the dots from a band that are without a doubt Cotonete’s biggest influence.

Brazilian jazz funk, now with an added French touch.

On ‘Day in Day Out’ a powerful performance is given from Leron Thomas on vocals and trumpet. Perhaps also known for his role as the musical director for Iggy Pop and touring member of his band. This track is an already tried and tested dance floor filler, emphasizing just how tight the band really can play – the track even found its way into BBC Music’s Craig Charles’ ‘Track Of The Year’ selection.

No record so soulful would be complete without a trip to the UK. Omar, London’s Godfather of New Soul pops in. Having recorded with artists like; Courtney Pine, Level 42 & Erykah Badu, in his distinctive smooth style, he blesses the track ‘What Did Run You For?’

The final vocal visitor is Gystere Peskine, a Parisian based musical hero, who shows off his retro future funk feels on ‘O Ceu es Preto’ – which literally translates as ‘the sky is black’ – although given the hugely uplifting and almost Gospel Soul of this Russian/Brazilian singer, he has us seeing things far brighter.

Cotonete have endeavored to build a worldwide rainbow warrior team of merry boys and girls. Fighting the brave fight to shine light towards the fact that music will always win…. “Victoire de la Musique” – a symphony of spring, songs of the new world, a “Victory Of Music” indeed.”
