Looking back: Moutin/Locke/Moutin performances

To celebrate the ten year anniversary of the Moutin Brothers Quartet, Louis and François Moutin invited a select few long time collaborators as guest musicians to their Reunion concert in Paris last Friday. Joe was honoured to be asked to join them on stage for this occasion, and to perform as a special guest, along with pianist Martial Solal and vocalist Elisabeth Kontomanou at La Cigale.

To round up this short trip to France - his first in 11 years - Joe, Louis and François came to Dunkerque Jazz Club on Saturday night for an energetic trio concert in front of an ecstatic crowd.
