Brothers Stéphane and Lionel Belmondo are perhaps the most famous siblings of French jazz. Renowned for their collaborations with such luminaries as Yusef Lateef and Milton Nascimento, for over a quarter of a century they have undertaken an impressive number of musical adventures. Stéphane, the flamboyant disciple of Chet Baker and Freddie Hubbard, one of the lyrical masters of his instrument, is among the most highly respected trumpet players on this side of the Atlantic.
Saxophonist Lionel has been a tireless artisan of a greater synergy between different musical styles, merging the souls of Lili Boulanger, Yusef Lateef and John Coltrane, and carrying the torch for jazz into the world of post-impressionistic classical music.
