Delbecq has found a way of making time slow down so that we have to hear his world in a new way or with new ears. There is something very hopeful about creating a New World from fragments of the previous one.
Bruce Lee Gallanter – Downtown Music Gallery New York

Exhilaratingly buoyant and satisfyingly substantial, this long overdue solo set is music to treasure.
Julian Cowley - THE WIRE

Un art singulier qui n'a pas fini de nous émerveiller.
A singular art which, once again, amazes us. ___ Pascal Rozat / Jazz Magazine FR.

It’s a mysterious and moving artistic statement from a richly important voice in contemporary improvised music.
Sam Leak – London Jazz News (UK)

The Weight of Light is another innovative addition to Delbecq’s discography. It is provocative without being abstruse and personal without being self-indulgent. It makes for a mesmerizing listening experience one that leads to fresh discoveries with each spin.
Hrayr Attarian – The Chicago Jazz Journal (USA)

In the vast history of jazz piano, there have been very few pianists who sound like no one else. One is Benoît Delbecq.
Thomas Conrad / JAZZTIMES (USA)

Delbecq's music is beyond categorisation, and a true delight.
***** Stef Gijssels / The Free Jazz Collective (NL)

***** Derk Richardson - Absolute Sound magazine.
