French bass virtuoso François Moutin and adventurous
New York-born vocalist Kavita Shah will take listeners on
an improvisational journey across both lyric-driven and
wordless jazz standards and original music.
François Moutin is a Paris-born virtuosic bassist
who received a doctorate in Physics at the age of 24
before choosing to become a professional musician.
He was a member of the legendary Martial Solal
Trio.At 29, he began co-leading the Quintet Moutin
with his twin brother Louis, a project which later
evolved into the Moutin Reunion Quartet. He has
performed in every important European jazz festival
and toured in over 30 countries around the world.
Kavita Shah is a vocalist, composer and lifelong
New Yorker hailed by NPR for her “amazing dexterity
for musical languages.” Like Moutin, Shah studied
languages and literature at Harvard University before
pursuing a Master’s in Jazz at Manhattan School of
Music. She was named Downbeat Magazine’s Best
Graduate Jazz Vocalist in 2012 and won the ASCAP
Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers Award in 2013.
A Downtown Music debut.
