"L’enfant terrible", that's how we call Médéric Collignon and "burlesque slippages of singing or disturbing rumblings" are what people say about his performances.
After his childhood at the Conservatory of Charleville-Mézières on the classical trumpet and having in the meantime arranged O. MESSIAEN (Quartet of the End of Time), he decided to change his expression including improvisation. He devoted himself to the repertoire of Jazz and "his children" and quite quickly found his own way. Arrived in Paris around 27 years after a few years rich in experiences, he meets various main actors of French jazz: Cl. Barthélémy, M. Portal, L. Sclavis, D. Badault, A. Emler, etc. and actively participates in orchestras such as "Le Sacre du Tympan" by F. Pallem or the "Zhig Band" by S.Gaxie. He became a bassist in Alerta G while playing in the ONJ. His personal projects are a way of mixing great collective works: "Porgy & Bess" by G. Evans and M. Davis, Miles' electric period between 1968-75, progressive rock by "King Crimson", music from L.Schifrin-Q.Jones-D.Shire films, Hip-Hop (Golden Age) and soon personal compositions… because he has been composing since the conservatory. He has performed in many places around the world and never leaves the curious audience indifferent. Theater, cinema, exhibitions, literature, performance… complete his insatiable appetite. The multiple rewards accumulated throughout his rich career in no way alter his independence and his curiosity with all the tools available to him and his boundless energy.
