About Me

Breath the music of jazz pianist, Pascal Le Boeuf, a spinner of webs constructed with beauty, emotion, and maturity. Winner of the 2008 International Songwriting competition and the 2006 Independent Music Awards, Pascal has emerged as one of the most admired new voices in jazz.

Part of a growing New York jazz scene characterized by hypnotizing rhythms, alternative rock, and the influences of artists such as Radiohead, Aaron Parks and Brad Mehldau, the 23-year-old Pascal Le Boeuf utilizes innovative rhythmic concepts to connect with his audiences on a musical and emotional level. Downbeat Magazine describes him as having “a strong percussive element to his playing, which he combines with a keen sense of dynamics.”

Mr. Le Boeuf performs and tours frequently with his jazz piano trio, Pascal's Triangle, which features bassist Linda Oh and drummer Joe Saylor. Pascal's Triangle first performed together as the rhythm section in progressive jazz group, the Le Boeuf Brother's Quintet, at the 55bar, a Greenwich Village dive bar famous for cultivating underground contemporary jazz. After working together as sidemen in various projects they decided to form their own trio to further develop their approach to improvisation. At their Blue Note debut on May 12th, they will be performing a combination of original compositions and “standards” of today’s popular music from their forthcoming album “Music for Reading - Sleeping - Feeling”.

His most recent album features his twin brother Remy Le Boeuf, Ambrose Akinmusire, Marcus Strickland, and Clarence Penn (among others). “This group has an impressively self-assured new album, “House Without a Door”, which reaches for the gleaming cosmopolitanism of our present era.” (New York Times) Although Pascal performs primarily as a leader, he can also be heard as a side-man with Clarence Penn (Maria Schneirder's Orchestra), Mike Ruby (Ari Hoenig) and Myron Walden (Brian Blade's Fellowship).

Pascal earned B.M. and M.M. degrees at the Manhattan School of Music as the recipient of the Michael W. Greene full scholarship.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
