Le Boeuf Brothers

Bio

The Le Boeuf Brothers are “talented musicians and award-winning composers who channel their influences, environments, and resources into works that reflect their own identities.” (All About Jazz). Pianist Pascal Le Boeuf and saxophonist Remy Le Boeuf “pursue a hyper-fluent streamlined modern ideal” (New York Times) with “an impressive level of sophistication.” (San Francisco Chronicle).

Their latest project imaginist is a full-length album in collaboration with JACK Quartet, one of New York’s premier string quartets devoted to contemporary classical music. The hybridized 9-piece chamber ensemble also features a collection of longtime collaborators including Grammy-nominated tenor saxophonist Ben Wendel, alternating bassists Ben Street and Martin Nevin, and alternating drummers Justin Brown and Peter Kronreif.  The term “imaginist” refers to the early 20th century Russian poetry movement characterized by sequences of arresting images and long chains of metaphors. imaginist is structured to unfold like a book – complete with a prologue and epilogue. The album includes a piece based on Franz Kafka‘s short story, “A Dream” narrated by actor Paul Whitworth, an exquisite corpse series based on the imaginist-esque collaborative poetry game in which a collection of words or images are collectively assembled, and “Alkaline” a hard-driving polyrhythmic mosaic.
