“This is one of the great underutilized instrumentations in jazz, and I’ve never heard it rendered quite like this.” – Giovanni Russonello, New York Times
The François Moutin & Kavita Shah Duo project is a meeting of minds and spirits, one that embraces virtuosity, spontaneity, and lyricism through a repertoire of standards and original music adapted to the unique instrumentation of acoustic bass and voice. At Hungry Brain, François and Kavita will present their first record “Interplay,” released in February 2018 on Dot Time Records. “Interplay,” recorded at Sear Sound Studios in New York and Le Studio de Meudon in Paris, features 11 tracks ranging from classics like Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose” to instrumental songs like Dafnis Prieto’s “Blah Blah” to original compositions by Shah and Moutin. The album also features special guests NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan on vocals, considered by many as the pioneer of the bass-and-voice duets, and legendary French pianist Martial Solal. The result is an improvisational journey across lyric-driven and wordless pieces alike.
