Philli Moo is molding his legacy as a premiere saxophonist, in addition to his skills as a singer, producer, and drummer. He is the former student of legendary jazz trumpeter Clark Terry Ron Carter,the great saxophonist and music aficionado Gerald Johnson, and his father, pianist Carl Mouton.
QNote is a Little Rock native with global awareness. He combines his Southern background and his many travels seamlessly into Songwriting, Rapping, Producing, Podcasts, Live Sound Production, Film and Documentaries, Musical Directing, Arranging, and playing Bass Keys, Guitar, Piano, and Organ.
