JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2015 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Moutin Factory Quintet at Rochester International Jazz Festival

Either the sax player in Moutin Factory Quintet is extremely large or his soprano sax is extremely small, maybe it's a sopranino. It has to be very strange to have an exact twin. And weirder still to play in a band with your twin. We had seen the Moutin brothers, drums and bass, at this same club in 2007. I remembered them being tightly synced, egging each other on and playing circles around one another. They still have that quality but they've added a guitar and sax to the lineup so it is not as pronounced. They pushed themselves and even worked some loose, outside interplay into their set.
