"Delbecq's mastery of extended techniques combined with Hersch's acute sense of harmony is a pleasure to hear." DOWNBEAT, May 2013

"This double trio recording is literally amazing: a mesmerizing house of mirrors, a dream one would not wish to be awoken from." B. Loupias, Le Nouvel Observateur, February 2013.

"An astounding fluidity. A music that's rare." Ludovic Florin / Jazz Magazine, Mars 2013, record of the month.

"Everybody does a lot of tightrope walking on Fun House (Songlines), a haunting double-trio session with French pianist Benoît Delbecq, bassist Jean-Jacques Avenel, and drummer Steve Argüelles (Hersch is accompanied by bassist Mark Helias and drummer Gerry Hemingway). Delbecq wrote nearly all the music, but though his prepared piano and electronic manipulations take center stage, Hersch is just as invested, reacting to his fellow keyboardist with precision and empathy—their give-and-take is refined and subtle, producing a chamberlike sound that’s startling in its clarity and lack of clutter. The terse, meditative compositions are harmonically ambiguous and drift like clouds—Hemingway and Argüelles do a marvelous job reinforcing the latter effect—but Hersch helps ground and focus them." Peter Margasak / THE CHICAGO READER, Dec 2013.

"La combinaison du jeu au piano préparé de Delbecq avec le délicat sens harmonique de Hersch sont un plaisir à écouter". DOWNBEAT, Mai 2103.

"Cet enregistrement en double trio est, au sens propre, inouï: un troublant jeu de miroirs, un songe dont on ne voudrait jamais se réveiller."  Bernard Loupias / Le Nouvel Observateur, Fev. 2013.

"Un album d'une fluidité confondante. Une musique rare." Ludovic Florin / Jazz Magazine, Mars 2013. 

With the grateful assistance of the French American Jazz Exchange Program (F/USA) as well as the DGCA / Ministère de la Culture (F).
