Improjazz, oct 2003 : \'Laurent Rochelle is an adept neither with the occult ner with well kept secrets.He disregards complexes and believes in his own instinct. When i listen to him, i can hear a touching, generous musician, a convinced melody composer, deeply romantic who in addition succeeds in making himself convincing" ad panorama, mars 2004: Laurent Rochelle creates an environment where an academic concert hall can crossbreed strangely with an old circus tent.His music could easily find it's place in Caro's and Jeunet's films. Traverses magazine, janvier2004 : All throughtout his finely chiselled pieces, we can see the half-concealed figures of E.Satie, pascal Comelade, Klimperei. Simple melodies full of sensations, dull sounds, crystal clear notes. This CD deserve to become loud when they talk about him. Longueur d\'onde, sept 2003, Vincent Michaud \' These conversations breathe and resound in a wallless space therefore,on all acounts, they should be heard by a great number. Jazzosphère, mai 2006 We fell how lonely a composer is when mentally he creates meterials and colours, when he gives life to a boundless creativity. A conversations to be discovered wit taking risks.
