Apr 22, 2010: Kidibuzz fait la Java #1 : HK & les Saltimbanks + Princes Chameaux + Noktambules at La Java
Published on: 04 Apr 2010

Kidibuzz fait la Java le jeudi 22 avril et ça va déménager !
HK & les Saltimbanks + Princes Chameaux + Noktambules

HK & LES SALTIMBANKS : Tout en restant fidèle à ses engagements de toujours, HK, avide de rencontres, de bonnes « vibes » et de musique partagée, se lance aujourd'hui dans une nouvelle aventure humaine et musicale : HK & les Saltimbanks. Le voilà donc accompagné sur scène et sur disque par une bande de « Saltimbanks » aussi talentueux que déjantés. On retrouve là Jeoffrey Arnone, qui officiait déjà à l'accordéon au sein du MAP. Mais aussi Cheb Medhy à la mandole, Manuel Paris à la Guitare, Big cat à la batterie, Eric Johnson à la basse, et Saïd-Toufik, comédien de son état.
A l'heure où les crises mondiales de toutes sortes se multiplient et se font concurrence, HK et les Saltimbanks nous proposent tout simplement d'en finir une bonne fois pour toute en « niquant la planète » ! Ils allient le geste à la parole en travaillant d' arrache-pied au réchauffement climatique planétaire des salles de concerts et autres festivals de plein air. Du CO2, ils en ont à revendre : ils chantent, ils crient, ils s'époumonent... et tout ça pour la bonne cause ! Un brin provoc' les saltimbanks ? Ne nous y trompons pas, si les textes sont souvent teintés d'humour, et d'auto-dérision, ils ne sont jamais dénués d'engagement.
La musique est celle de citoyens du monde reniant toute idée de frontières, qu'elles soient physiques ou musicales. HK & Les Saltimbanks nous livrent donc un répertoire se situant quelque part, entre chanson et World. Une musique aux influences venues d'Afrique, d'Europe, d'Amérique… teintée , de Blues, de Chaâbi, de Hip-Hop, de reggae … Une musique par définition inclassable, parce que « en mouvement » : nomade.

PRINCES CHAMEAUX : Entre gouaille, chanson française, énergie rock et un brin de guinche, Princes Chameaux créent en live une ambiance survoltée, chanson, Rock'n'Roll et sensations Punk assurées...
http://www.myspace.com/princeschameaux

NOKTAMBULES : Un repas complet super épicé pour vous faire voyager des Balkans jusqu’à l’Afrique en passant évidemment par Paris. Des percussions, des cuivres, de la guitare, des samples, du chant et bien sûr des textes ! Des textes plus que sincères qui donnent un sens à ce festin... Ils ont faim et cuisinent de mieux en mieux, il faut goûter !

Allison Crowe revient sur la scène de L'Archipel - avec special guest Emily B. Green

Spectacular spectacular a Paris avec Fazioli piano.

Allison Crowe revient en France en 2010

ALLISON CROWE
à L'Archipel, Paris (salle bleue)

SAMEDI 24 AVRIL à 20H30

EMILY B. GREEN
(en 1ère partie)

Après son succès en 2008 et 2009, l'auteur-compositeur-interprète indépendante et accomplie Allison Crowe revient sur la scène de L'Archipel.

Dotée d'une voix qui ne peut laisser insensible, elle est originaire de Colombie Britannique et de Terre-Neuve, au Canada. Descendante des Ecossais, des Irlandais et des Manx, Allison Crowe est un phénomène. "Quand Elton John rencontre Edith Piaf", rapporte un chroniqueur. L'intensité avec laquelle sa voix riche et puissante célèbre la musique n'est pas sans rappeler celle des plus grandes chanteuses de blues.

Influencée par la fougue indépendante d'Ani DiFranco (Allison a également monté son propre label), par la beauté ésotérique de Tori Amos ainsi que par la passion de grands artistes tels que Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Nina Simone, et... Beethoven.

Allison Crowe, pianiste classique de formation, a peu à peu créé sa propre musique, mélange indescriptible de rock, gospel, jazz, grunge, classique, blues, folk et soul. A travers ses chansons, elle communiqué sur des thémes universels comme l'amour, la vie et la mort.

"J'ai rarement été bouleversée à ce point par une voix féminine. Pure comme de la glace, puissante et même violente... qu'il est impossible de ne pas mettre son coeur en jeu en l'écoutant... faîtes place à une virtuose nom de Zeus!" ~ SplinterMuse (France)

"Ever wonder what it would have been like to listen to a gifted singer/songwriter from Saskatchewan in a small, intimate hall before she became Joni Mitchell? Don't fret the missed opportunity. There's no need to turn back the clock. Check out Allison Crowe..." ~ Robert Reid, The Record (Canada)

"Treat yourself to one of the mightiest talents on the singer-songwriter scene today." ~ Bob Muller, JoniMitchell.com (USA)

"Her version of "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)" would give Aretha Franklin goose-bumps." ~ Robert Moyes, Boulevard (Canada)

Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe is renowned for her ability to blend control and melodrama." ~ MOJO (UK)

"The most honest, heartfelt, and directly intimate concert in my entire life" ~ Ross Hocker, WGTE/NPR Radio (USA)

Avec en première partie :

EMILY B. GREEN

Emily B. Green revisite une légende de Noël anglo-saxonne qui raconte que manger des prunes confites, les " Sugar Plums ", la veille de Noël, berce le sommeil de visions. Ces visions constituent le répertoire de son spectacle intitulé " Sugar Plum Visions ", une porte ouverte sur un monde où le temps s'arrête.

Les personnages qui peuplent les visions dansent au rythme d'une musique où le jazz, la chanson cabaret et la pop se mêlent à la voix et au piano d'Emily B. Green qui s'est entourée de Claude Demay à la batterie (Mr HotGroove) et de Jean-Claude Kebaïli à la basse (Overhead).

Emily B. Green et ses Sugar Plum Visions proposent une trêverie, un voyage vers soi, vers l'autre - une quête.

May 27, 2010: Jonathan Lewis: Writing optimal SQL & Troubleshooting &Tuning at Oracle University Centre Paris Colombes
Published on: 01 Mar 2010

Oracle University vous propose un séminaire de deux jours pour explorer deux domaines restés un peu retrait des séminaires habituels portant sur l’optimisation des requêtes : l’écriture d’un code SQL « optimal » puis l’identification et le dépannage des problèmes de performance SQL

Jour 1: Writing optimal SQL

Cette première journée poursuit deux objectifs. Tout d'abord, améliorer la performance d'un système de production en venant à bout des ordres SQL inefficaces, et également, concevoir un système permettant un accès performant aux données. Dans beaucoup de cas, le design est déjà fait, cependant il faut reconnaître que ces deux objectifs interagissent.

Ainsi, lorsque vous tentez d'optimiser un ordre SQL, vous avez besoin de savoir que certaines structures de la base de données sont disponibles pour vous aider à élaborer une solution plus performante, en dépit des problèmes liés au SQL en tant que tel.

Ce cours détaillera les avantages et inconvénients des options structurelles utilisables avec le SQL, l'utilisation des index et des vues, les fonctions analytiques, le factoring des sous-requêtes et les statistiques. Enfin, elle proposera de nombreuses astuces pratiques, ainsi qu'un tour d'horizon rapide des plans d'exécution.

Thèmes abordés :
Se concentrer sur le problème plus que sur le SQL
Renforcer la lisibilité du SQL
Optimisation structurelle
Elaborer une stratégie de conception et de débogage du SQL
Techniques diverses

Jour 2: Troubleshooting &Tuning

Dépannage ou réglage d'un problème - Quelle différence entre ces deux options ? Quelle stratégie appliquer ? Pourquoi est-il plus simple de procéder à un dépannage qu'à un réglage ? Objectifs, indicateurs et mécanismes clés permettant de produire un système parfaitement réglé dès le premier jour. Stratégies d'optimisation des systèmes de production peu performants.

Problèmes fréquents - Problèmes les plus fréquents affectant la performance d'un système après sa mise en production. Méthodes permettant de détecter ces problèmes, d'évaluer leur impact et de les résoudre par application du triangle coût-risque-avantages. Les bons réflexes : analyse préventive et résolution proactive des problèmes.

Solutions « vite fait, bien fait » -Méthodes, contournements, trucs, astuces et paramètres permettant de résoudre les problèmes classiques de performance des systèmes en production. Rares sont les solutions « vite fait, bien fait » qui peuvent être réalisées dans tous les cas de figure. Chaque problème requiert une évaluation précise des coûts, risques et avantages. Cette partie examine les options les plus à même de s'avérer bénéfiques.

V$ et X$ - Cette partie présente les vues les plus couramment utilisées et revient sur la signification de certains des éléments les plus utiles.

Sep 18, 2010: U2 Concert Paris at Stade De France
Published on: 20 Nov 2009

On 1997's Pop, U2 continued experimenting; tape loops, programming, rhythm sequencing, and sampling provided much of the album with heavy, funky dance rhythms. Released in March, the album debuted at number one in 35 countries, and drew mainly positive reviews. Rolling Stone, for example, stated that U2 had "defied the odds and made some of the greatest music of their lives". Others felt that the album was a major disappointment and sales were poor compared to previous U2 releases. The band was hurried into completing the album in time for the impending pre-booked tour, and Bono admitted that the album "didn't communicate the way it was intended to".

Created in 1667 by André Le Nôtre, Louis XIV's gardener,in order to improve the view from the Tuileries garden. The avenue was lenghtened at the end of the 18th century, running from theplace de la Concorde to the Arc de Triomphe. Two kilometers long and bordered by trees, les Champs-Elysées has become the center for festivities and official parades. It is likewise a magnet for tourists and night strollers. Set between the many cinemas,the cafés and restaurants tempt you to stop in. Designer boutiques,banks and embassies are also situated in this chic neighborhood.

The Champs-Élysées (literally, the "Elysian fields") is a broad avenue in the French capital Paris. With its cinemas, cafés, and luxury specialty shops, the Champs-Élysées is one of the most famous streets in the world.

The avenue runs from the Place de la Concorde to the Place de l'Étoile, location of the Arc de Triomphe, and forms part of the line of the Axe historique.

The Champs-Élysées were originally nothing but fields, until 1616 when Marie de Medici decided to build a long tree-lined pathway. In 1724, the avenue was extended up to the Place de l'Étoile.

By the late 1700s, it had become a fashionable avenue where Queen Marie Antoinette strolled with her friends and took music lessons at the grand Hotel Crillon. The Champs-Élysées became city property in 1828, and footpaths, fountains, and gas lighting were added. Over the years, the avenue has undergone numerous transitions, most recently in 1993.

The Élysée Palace is located not far from the avenue.



   


Restaurants on the Champs Elysees :

Bistros & brasseries
Le Boeuf sur le Toit
34 rue du Colisée, 8th (01.53.93.65.55). M° St-Philippe du Roule.
Open noon-3pm, 7pm-1am daily.
Average €38.
Prix fixe €31.
Credit AmEx, DC, MC, V. Non-smoking room.

Le Boeuf sur le Toit started out as a lively cabaret in the 1920s. Taken over by Groupe Flo in the mid-1980s, the brasserie was restored and enlarged, but echoes of ‘les années folles’ remain in the decor and the bubbly crowd. The huge bank of oysters is one of the highlights here, but there are also some satisfying Mediterranean-style dishes à la carte, alongside brasserie classics such as the andouillette de Troyes. The wine list offers a good choice, including carafes, and a range of prices.

Chez Léon
32 rue Legendre, 17th (01.42.27.06.82). M° Villiers.
Open noon-2pm, 7.30-10pm Mon-Fri. Closed Aug.
Average €40.
Prix fixe €29.

This old-fashioned spot is charming for its sincerity, fly-in-amber decor and carefully made, generous, rare bistro classics. The €29 prix fixe offers stunning value for money since it includes a better-than-decent half bottle of wine. What a treat to find homemade jambon persillé so full of taste. Main courses of smoked herring with an aubergine timbale and rumpsteak with chips are also excellent, and the waiters express an existential resignation worthy of a boulevard comedy.

Les Ormes
8 rue Chapu, 16th (01.46.47.83.98). M° Exelmans.
Open 12.15-2pm, 7.45-10pm Tue-Sat. Closed Aug, first week in Jan.
Average €45.
Prix fixe €40.50 (dinner and Sat lunch).
Lunch menu €26, €30.

It’s worth the trip to discover the cooking of talented young chef Stéphane Molé, whose delicious cooking is at once lusty and refined. The good-value prix fixe - three courses plus cheese from the fromagerie Alléosse - changes almost daily but typical dishes include quenelles de brochet (pike-perch dumplings) with sauce américaine, and boneless veal knuckle with gnocchi. Desserts are excellent, too.

Restaurant GR5
19 rue Gustave Courbet, 16th (01.47.27.09.84). M° Trocadéro.
Open noon-3pm, 7-11pm Mon-Sat.
Average

Incongruously located among the chic boutiques of the 16th is this mock mountain refuge, named after the long-distance footpath that winds through the Jura to the Alps. The welcome is warm, and rib-sticking cheese and potatoes are the key ingredients in Savoyarde fare such as fondue queyrassienne (€35 for two people) - a three-cheese version of the Alpine classic with bacon and onions - raclette valaisienne, or tartiflette, a cheese, potato, and bacon concoction that will give you the energy, if you can get up from the table, to climb Mont Blanc.

Restaurant L’Entredgeu
83 rue Laugier, 17th (01.40.54.97.24). M° Porte de Champerret.
Open noon-2pm, 8-10.15pm Tue-Sat.
Prix fixe

This snug little bistro has been packed ever since it opened thanks to its excellent food at very reasonable prices. Young chef Philippe Tredgeu mastered this sure-fire formula while heading the kitchen at Chez Casimir. The blackboard menu changes daily, and might feature scallops cooked in their shells with salted butter and crumbled cauliflower, chewy, flavourful roast pork with braised chicory and lamb stuffed with foie gras. Homely desserts run to caramelised bananas and apple crumble.

Le Scheffer
22 rue Scheffer, 16th (01.47.27.81.11). M° Trocadéro.
Open noon-2.30pm, 7.30-10.30pm Mon-Sat. Closed Sat in July and Aug, 25 Dec-2 Jan.
Average

A stone’s throw from busy Trocadéro, Le Scheffer is a tourist-free haven for French family-style dining. OK, so the French Sloanes with immaculate enfants aren’t your average family, but their palates are reassuringly classical. Slather os à moëlle (unctuous marrow bone) on bread and follow with crispy confit de canard or salmon grilled à l’unilatéral (on one side). A mound of profiteroles or fluffy île flottante vie for top sweet. Be sure to book ahead.

Contemporary/trendy
Le 16 au 16
16 av Bugeaud, 16th (01.56.28.16.16). M° Victor Hugo.
Open noon-2.30pm, 7.30-10.30pm Tue-Sat.
Average

Ghislaine Arabian’s former restaurant has been adroitly reinvented and even improved by the team she left behind. Chef Frédéric Simonin has a sassy creativity and excels in seasoning and timing, as shown in the fillet of beef in a rich shallot and red wine reduction with ratte potatoes, and sea bass with white beans and thyme. Dessert thrills include sublime figs poached in wine with pine nuts, and the assiette 16 sur 16, a spectacular study in chocolate and caramel. There’s a brilliant wine list with a good selection of foreign bottles, and a buzzy crowd.

Even if you have an aversion to fashion restaurants, make an exception for this place, since the decor, food and service are really good in a part of Paris that desperately needed an option between the plastic corner café and haute cuisine. The menu is ideal for grazing, since you can order a tasting plate of seafood - sea bass sashimi, salmon tartare and rillettes, brandade and green beans - and a similar all-in veg plate, or go à la carte with a cheese-and-chive soufflé or tomatoes stuffed with chèvre, followed by steak tartare, chicken in lemon-saffron sauce, or langoustine risotto with mango.

Engaging chef Flora Mikula runs this stylish new restaurant with floral-upon-floral wallpaper and 1940s-style glass wall sconces. Mikula, one of the best Provençal chefs in Europe, has broadened her horizons to include an international version of the south that visits Morocco, Turkey, India and Vietnam. Starters such as a croustillant de crabe in tomato soup, a main of lobster with broad beans and girolles in a jus of its own coral, and desserts including a macaroon in rose syrup with lime sorbet, are all wonderful, and the hospitality is southern too.

The Pourcel twins have done a brilliant job at reviving this trendy spot over the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. The decor is slick and the menu is superb. It’s the starters that star, with dishes as visually interesting as they are appetising: sea urchins stuffed with dressed crab and garnished with caviar; tarte Tatin of shallots with grilled red mullet, and mains such as sea bass baked with preserved lemons and roast duck fillet with a ‘pastilla’ of carrots and apricots. Desserts are brilliant, too.

While others have come and gone Spoon, with its mix-and-match menu, has stayed much the same, though it’s not chock-full as it used to be and prices are decidedly cheeky. The Speedy Spoon, a recently introduced 40-minute lunch menu, draws on a different continent every day, providing a kind of upmarket TV dinner. The Spoon Top Five desserts include great cheesecake and nougat ice cream.

Ducasse’s spectacular cuisine continues to shine, and the service is probably the most professional, engaging and precise of any restaurant in Paris. From amuse-bouches of perfectly poached langoustines topped with caviar, and spider crab served in its orange shell beneath a bubbly foam of coral, through sautéed Breton lobster with asparagus tips and morels in a light sauce of its own cooking juices, a superb plate of cheeses and desserts that are an operatic triumph, this address provides an unforgettable dining experience. Book well ahead.

A look at the menu replete with lobster, truffles, caviar, Bresse chicken, turbot and sea bass and you could believe it to be simply a roll-call of grandeur. Not so. Philippe Legendre does indeed produce luxury fare, but combined with precise execution, well-judged service and just a whiff of invention. The undoubted highlight is the lobster, wood-smoked in its shell and surrounded by a delicate, frothy morel sauce. The cheese trolley is full of well-aged specimens, among them the fabulous venaco de Corse.

There is only one Pierre Gagnaire. The man is a creative genius, and a meal here is a breathtaking adventure. Dishes are made up of several elements, served separately, which attempt to tell the story of a particular ingredient: ‘la langoustine’, for instance, featuring a pan-fried version with a lime tuile, a mousseline with lemongrass, a tartare with apple and ginger, and grilled, with thyme nougatine. Others illustrate surprising complementarities (veal and frogs, for example). The prix fixe offers an ideal introduction, with some nine separate courses. Book well ahead at this top table.

The sleepy street is not very easy to find but that doesn’t stop this small, understated restaurant from filling up with an entirely Japanese crowd. Starters include a sublime crab and prawn salad - real crab claws with squeaky fresh prawns and ever-so-thin marinated cucumber slices - and richly flavoured miso soup with clams. Sushi and sashimi are expensive but the quality is equivalently high.
