O’s Notes: There is a lot of swinging music emanating from France these days. Here’s an example! The lower registers are handled by twin brothers, Franois (b) and Louis (d) Moutin. Baptiste Trotignon (p) and Sylvain Beuf (sax) join them to form the quartet. They play nine mostly original neobop/fusion songs with a touch of funk. There are heavily syncopated beats with enough open space to allow the twins to display their talents. It’s got a nice fresh groove.
