“Jocelyn Ménard is a solid instrumentalist and a pleasant composer with both a nice slap and a great expressiveness- which some of his Northern fellow citizens sometimes lack- He has obviously found through his journeys, the inspiration and energy to give some content to his work, either jazz, latin jazz or jazz fusion, without any kind of straight mannerism.” – Yves Sportis – Jazz Hot – Feb. 2013

Men Art Works – 2002

Featuring Alain Jean-Marie (pno), George Mitchell (b) & Martin Auguste (dms).

“Whether playing on a soprano or a tenor, Jocelyn Ménard’s way of playing is all about steady readibility and dense expression blend with a remarkable rhythmic (…) But the album would have never reached such a level of success without its outstanding cohesion. “ – Stéphane Carimi – Jazzman – Oct. 2002
“Jocelyn Ménard Jazz Quartet’s label debut Men Art Works is an excellent sculpture of melodics mosaics collected on one amazing, inspired disc. […] Ménard is swinging hard and fast, rounding curves and personifying the opening song. “ – Paula Edelstein – All Music Guide.
