La Gazette Bleue
"Michel et ses amis n’en ont pas fini de nous faire rêver d’un monde de quiétude affairée, de recherches méditatives et de trouvailles inespérées !"

Citizen Jazz
"une œuvre colorée, vive et remplie d’étrangeté qui stimule l’imagination"

The WholeNote
"it all works incredibly well. The improvisers not only know exactly how much space to leave for each other, but looking at the score, I was struck by how effectively the music evoked specific images on the score and vice versa with almost supernatural symbiosis."

"one of the most interesting jazz-poetry albums of the recent decade"THE AMATEUR'S GUIDE TO AVANTGARDE
