« We knew the « right » way of David Bressat's play. Here he gets rid of these cliches and those agreed reiterations that announce that the source is about to dry up. Here, he never stops introducing lights and shades ( and dematerializing to reach the lightness of the being.) » Citizen Jazz, Jean-Claude PENNEC

In the overheated jazz club he has invited the tremendous American saxophonist Marcus Strickland to support him in this mission, proving once again that when music is good, it has no boundaries... », Le Dauphiné
