Tap That Jazz (formerly Les Oignons) is the most modern of trad jazz bands, fronted by the daring trumpet of Julien Silvand and a group that’s adopted the codes of the genre: brass, banjo, sousaphone, washboard and… tap dancing. The band provides a rare and efficient New Orleans setting for the power and soul in the voice of the wonderful June Milo. “Respect” pays tribute to the great songs that have worked for female emancipation, and among the references here you can find Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Cesària Évora, Anne Sylvestre, Bizet’s Carmen, Elisapie and Janis Joplin.

Avec « Respect » (Frémeaux & Associés / Socadisc) [****] du groupe Tap That Jazz (anciennement Les Oignons) on revient aux sources du jazz avec un orchestre de style Nouvelle Orléans pas comme les autres. Si les codes instrumentaux du genre sont bien là (soubassophone, banjo, washboard ou claquettes), le répertoire construit autour de grandes chansons féminines émancipatrices fait appel à Otis Redding, Billie Holiday ou Cesaria Evora autant qu’à Verdi, Bellini ou Bizet. Il en résulte un album étonnant où la qualité des arrangements et de l’interprétation autant que la voix puissante de June Milo nous emportent dans un tourbillon plein d’allant et de gaieté. Ce n’était pas gagné d’avance, mais voici un CD original et épatant ! Philippe VINCENT - JAZZMAGAZINE

Once again I’ve put my trust entirely in June Milo and her magnificent voice, at ease in every style, to sing the essence of “Respect,” the album from the show “Sing That Fight”, which pays tribute to the great singers of opera, pop and jazz who have been victims of sexism and racial discrimination, and who transformed their suffering into a powerful song of combat.
The lives of Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Cesària Évora, Anne Sylvestre and Janis Joplin are inexhaustible wells of inspiration. History marked those women because they were the ones who marked History, as spokeswomen who became icons in protest movements for equality, and also as shining examples of resistance… Claiming their rights led them further into emancipation and freedom.
In older times, opera libretti didn’t escape sexism or racism: in the former, the rights and opinions of women were either scorned or absent. Was it the desire of their authors (rarely female) to denounce the killing of women in those days ? Or was it some blind romanticism attempting to render crimes of passion legitimate for tabloid operas ?
As for the divas, from Marian Anderson to Leontyne Price via Maria Callas, amongst others, they were, and are, obliged to fight more than men to have a career, and do so without any guarantee of enjoying the career they deserve, especially if their skin is dark.
In this CD, there is no hint in the direction of Josephine Baker’s universe, nor that of Ella Fitzgerald. That suggestion takes place on a stage, in our show, and I can strongly focus on their lives as artists and militants fighting for a more inclusive, less impartial world.
“Sing That Fight” is the fifth album to come from the group Tap That Jazz (formerly Les Oignons). The group, founded in 2005, now includes “Cajoune” Girard playing a washboard, which adds even more spice to my musical cookery… “Cajun style” of course!
Echoing indigenous peoples worldwide, I found inspiration for a song in international slogans that demanded the decolonisation process for occupied territories instead of simple excuses in public. The idea to write that song was given to me by the world of Elisapie, an Inuit artist from Canada, and one of her songs appears here.
Tap-dancers have always had a place of choice in this material, and here the shoes are worn by the tireless Julien Vardon.
A word, finally, for the efficiency and devotion of Rémi Oswald, Dominique Mandin and Raphaël Martin who, in the fullness of their artistry as sidemen, have succeeded in “hitting the right note” to make this CD a work that will create its share, as we sincerely hope, of equality and respect among humans everywhere, without the slightest hint of discrimination
Julien Silvand

(J. Silvand - Supervision des paroles / Lyrics supervision: Hope C.)

Decolonise, don’t just recognise
We need our sovereignty
With sincere acts.
We need dignity
Without a wound that deeply cuts.
Official apologies are only symbolic,
Natives ain’t fooled.
On occupied territories
Where my ancestors were hunted and persecuted.
What is in your mind?
How is your conscience?
What do you teach to your children?
