When Parisian natives and twin brothers Louis (drums) and François Moutin (upright bass) developed the name Moutin Reunion Quartet, it had been a tiny joke. The term “reunion” talks to the actual fact the brothers had been forming a music group some 30 years once they initial played jointly, at age five. Both had been inspired by their parents’ huge, mainly jazz record collection. Louis began on piano and François on electric guitar, but both turned with their current musical instruments by age 20. Louis still left college using a master’s level in mathematics, François using a doctorate in physics, but within 3 years of graduation both got ditched their even more traditional professions to try their good fortune in the wonderful world of jazz. Louis began with Trio Machado and afterwards became a sideman to John Abercrombie, Markus Stockhausen, Albert Mangelsdorff, and Michel Legrand. François kicked off his profession using the Martial Solal Trio and used Randy Brecker, Toots Thielemans, and Archie Shepp while he was still in Paris. In past due 1997, François shifted to NEW YORK and kept active using Frank Wess, Monty Alexander, Simon Shaheen, and many more. Despite getting on two different continents, the twins shaped the Moutin Reunion Quartet in 1999, adding two French music artists. Pianist and previous Mangelsdorff sideman Baptiste Trotignon and saxophonist and Martial Solal alumnus Sylvain Beuf followed the brothers on the 2002 debut, Power Tree. Beuf still left the music group and was changed with former Mls Davis saxophonist and NEW YORK citizen Rick Margitza. The brand new lineup released Crimson Moon at the start of 2004.
