"Faune" is produced by the label French Paradox and distributed physically all over France, and virtually all over the music platforms, thanks to "L'Autre Distribution". It's been elected "Revelation" by JazzMagazine - France.

"ce disque tutoie les hautes sphères"

"un batteur dont on n’a pas fini de parler"

"A la tête de son jazz combo transgénérationnel et transcontinental à géométrie variable - Raphaël Pannier réveille aussi bien les fantômes harmoniques de Ravel (Forlane) que ceux du Miles Davis des glorieuses sixties." 

"on apprendra ce disque par coeur."   Frédéric Goaty

"Une magnifique découverte"
"Avec ce casting de haut vol, Raphaël Pannier joue dans la cour des quelques batteurs de l'histoire qui ont aussi été compositeurs, et leaders"
"C'est magnifique de feeling, de sentiment, de ressenti,"
"Bravo aussi pour un premier disque de batteur de ne pas jouer les m'as-tu vu, de ne pas être démonstratif. On est dans la finesse et dans la musicalité."
