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.
