”Leur prestation est marquée par un mélange de précision, d'exactitude, de sens du détail, et de lyrisme, de spontanéité, de lâché prise, qu'incarnent l'élégance de Rafael Koerner, l'énergie de Julien Soro, la malice de Fabien Debellefontaine et la présence de Stéphane Caracci.” Franck Bergerot, JazzMagazine
