Album Review

The twin brothers François and Louis Moutin co-lead this intriguing post-bop jazz quartet. The group is called a "reunion" because, after growing up together, the Moutins played music thousands of miles apart from each other for 11 years when bassist François moved to the U.S. while drummer Louis chose to stay in France.
