Jean Bialu Makiese - or, as Franco dubbed him, "Madilu System" - was the wistful, high voice that featured in so many T.P.O.K. Jazz records of the 1980's: 'Mario', 'Tu Vois? (Mamou)', 'La Vie des Hommes' and many, many more. After Franco's death, Madilu's solo album of 1994, sans commentaire, confirmed him as one of Franco's most accomplished proteges, not just as a singer but also as a composer and lyricist.

"It is impossible to know if this album sounds different in the knowledge that the singer died so soon after completing it. But it surely would have been recognised as a milestone even if Madilu System suvived to hear the applause"

Charlie Gillett Observer Music Magazine

"Lush and harmonious, packed with strong melodies and catchy hooks, La Bonne Humeur captures Makiese still at the peak of his powers, accompanied by an outstanding all-star band."
