…The accent is put on the song, on melodic fluidity and rhythmic scansion, on the exactness of the narrative architecture, and one always keeps a respectful distance with large lyrical effusions and the emphatic expression of emotions. Michel Edelin, Jacques Di Donato, Jean-Jacques Avenel et Simon Goubert know how to calculate their phrases, sometimes as far as ellipse, they know how to delicately retie them, to proceed by allusions, sudden cuts, amused ruptures, leaps, tensions, parenthesis. One reaches an instant plenitude («A line, a few summary vibrations, and everything becomes clear», as Mallarmé wrote) irresistably seductive while, paradoxically, the improvisations flee the affected poetic style and take a malicious pleasure in thwarting the discourse which, by the rhythm and range would ring too pure, too beautiful… Bernard Aimé, extrait des notes de pochette
