ALBUMS

BREATHE (2016)

"Breathe is a wonderfully moving and artistically satisfying venture into a rare quartet of less than customary instruments." Travis Rogers Jr, JazzTimes

"Parisian native Yvonnick Prene wields breathtaking lyricism and beauty of tone matched by exceptional virtuosity on the chromatic harmonica." Hot House Jazz

"Prene's fourth album finds him working within an organ-centric setting. It's a first on record for him, but it sounds as if he's been dealing with this format forever."All About Jazz

Merci Toots (2015)

"This is Prene’s third album as a leader and he is a much sought-after contributor" JazzTimes

"The most beautiful music I have ever heard on harmonica" Lee Konitz

Wonderful World (2014)

Yvonnick Prene takes a giant leap forward with a modern masterpiece embracing the traditional gypsy jazz movement!" Bopnjazz.com

"The warmth of Prené's tone, his virtuosity and the group's collective joie de vivre means that even tunes as old as the proverbial hills sound fresh." All About Jazz

"Prene’s got a warm sound to his harp, geting cozy on “Desafinado” and bluesy on Horace Silver’s “Strollin". Lots to enjoy here." Jazz Weekly

Jour de Fete (2013)

"...Ballads and slower grooves are one of Prené’s strong points, but even when he embraces a fast tempo on “Obsessions” and John Coltrane’s “Satellite”, his harmonica playing has an ethereal quality...Jour de Fête is a consistently promising debut album from this young French improviser." The New York City Jazz Records
