ING article KEYB Aug 98 small

- August 1998 by Titus LEVI for KEYBOARD Magazine USA DISCOVERIES

[...] His music has a "crashing about the room like a bull in a China shop" feel. It's sort of a multiple-influence wrestling match that actually works. The big, rambling piece that conclude his CD, "Voyage dans un coeur brûlant", sums up the spirit of his playing and compositions. At once virtuosic, flashy and musical, this CD ranges from rock grooves to quiet passages and more grandiose segments. His formidable guitar playing skills allow the music to range far and wide from there [...]

[...] First taste of a work that seems as huge as the Bach cantata, "inguitarissable" is not your average CD [...] [...] An incandescent gold nugget cast in the pond of rock [...]

- A few more excerpts:


- April 1997 by Norberto GIMELFARB for VIVA LA MUSICA LE MOULIN DES GALETTES

[...] Whatever guitar or overlay of guitars and synths he chooses, pleasure is waiting for you at the tip of his fingers [...] [...] jfm, the composer, the guitarist, the multi-instrumentalist, the passionate, invites you, in these eight titles, to savour all the strings of his guit-arc-rainbow to your heart's content [...]

- Wednesday, March 12 1997 by Corinne Jaquiery  for COOPERATION CD section

[...] Lovers of metaphorical atmospheres, those who are crazy about guitar and exercices of a dangerous nature, comedians and passionate souls, travellers of the mind, all alike will find this CD unabandonable [...]

- February 1997 by Jerome Niquille for RENCONTRES GUITARES

[...] It is neither virtuose jazz-rock void of inspiration, nor an umpteenth version of "Jeux Interdits". No, his CD has a hell of a personality, let's say it! [...] [...] In this controlled overflow, the limits between styles explode and the electric anger shares without complexes, and without transition, the acoustic intimacy or the synthetic airyness. You're only left with music [...] [...] Of course all labels are reductive and can never replace the listening that this CD deserves. It is a magnificent disc of a guitarist who always plays seriously but never takes himself too seriously. One more reason to take him seriously, right? [...]

- February 1997 by GB for NOUVELLES DES PAQUIS

[...] Impossible to listen to it offhandedly while thinking of something else. From the first notes, jfm the musical prestidigitator draws you into his trap [...] [...] No dull moments in this succession of musical exploits, driven by Alain RIEDER's drumming. No useless fill-ins. Everything is new, surprising. A festive ambiance and an unmatched virtuosity reflecting the musician's gladness in playing and an absolutely communicative joy [...]


- February 1997 by Bernard Lechot for SWISS MUSIC INFOS section POP

[...] We have here a CD at the highest degree, made of audacious and more or less profane manipulations where technique leaves ample space to emotions and imagination [...]

- Friday, December 13, 1996 by Lionel Chiuch for La TRIBUNE DE GENEVE rubrique MUSIQUE

[...] "Separated into eight pieces, disjointed facets of a musical kaleidoscope, "inguitarissable" finds its coherence in its overall stabilizing sensitivity [...] jfm managed to favor emotions, thanks to his talents as a melodist [...] [...] Borrowing form from rock and grammar from jazz, the guitarist managed to combine the uncombinable and above all, to reconcile those who are frightened by difference with musical ecumenism [...]
