Moutin Reunion Quartet: Soul Dancers

Read "Soul Dancers" reviewed by John Kelman

Despite the reunion now nearly a decade old, there's nothing out of place or out of time about the vibrant Moutin Reunion Quartet. The group--co-led by twin brothers François (bass) and Louis (drums) Moutin--has delivered fiery album after fiery album since its 2002 debut, Power Tree (Dreyfus), but it's only been since its third release, Something ...

Moutin Reunion Quartet: Sharp Turns

Read "Sharp Turns" reviewed by Laurel Gross

Must it be pointed out that François and Louis Moutin are twins? Admittedly, it is a novelty to see these two handsome Gallic faces mirror-image each other in live performance, and on a special DVD side of Sharp Turns, by their Moutin Reunion Quartet. But live with them a little and it will become apparent that ...

Moutin Reunion Quartet: Sharp Turns

Read "Sharp Turns" reviewed by John Kelman

Plenty has already been written about François and Louis Moutin, co-leaders of the Moutin Reunion Quartet, and the special simpatico they share as twin brothers. Over the course of three albums, including Something Like Now (Nocturne, 2005), the bassist and drummer have evolved a contemporary approach that, despite being largely acoustic, borrows as much--philosophically if not ...

France's twin brother jazz combination, bassist François and drummer Louis Moutin, have just released their third Moutin Reunion Quartet recording in six years since the unit was formed as a showcase for their swinging, original compositions.

Moutin Reunion Quartet: Something Like Now

Read "Something Like Now" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Those twins are at it again: producing some fine jazz. Paris-born bassist François and drummer Louis Moutin continue their brand of in your face (more correctly in your ear) jazz that sharply illustrates of contemporary bop sensibilities.

Moutin Reunion Quartet: Red Moon

Read "Red Moon" reviewed by AAJ Staff

The first thing that grabs you when you pick up Red Moon is the design of the case, a clever cardboard entity with a cool circular hole that can give you every phase of the moon when you rotate the disc inside. Spend a few seconds playing with that, and then get into the music. This ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
