Le Boeuf Brothers

Remy and Pascal Le Boeuf (saxophone and piano) are part of a growing New York jazz scene characterized by odd time signatures, alternative rock, and the influences of artists such as Radiohead, Brian Blade and Kurt Rosenwinkel. What makes the 23-year-old Le Boeuf Brothers sparkle among other young jazz musicians is their uncanny ability to communicate with each other using their own secret musical language. This isn't surprising when you discover that Pascal and Remy Le Boeuf are identical twins. In their short musical career, the Le Boeuf Brothers (pronounced “le buff”) have garnered an impressive tally of national and international awards and accomplishments, the most notable being the ASCAP/IAJE Commission honoring Quincy Jones, which premiered at the 2004 IAJE conference and featured tenor saxophonist Chris Potter. The Le Boeuf Brothers have also received awards from Downbeat Magazine, the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, and dominated the 2006 Independent Music Awards, winning Best Jazz Album and Best Jazz Song for their prior release “Migration”

Oliver Lake: Right Up On

Read "Right Up On" reviewed by Troy Dostert

Although he will always be known first and foremost as an uncompromising saxophonist who helped catalyze the jazz avant- garde from the 1970s onward, it's also worth recognizing Oliver Lake's ambition as a composer. He has a particular fondness for strings in this regard, actually, as he has composed extensively for string quartets for over twenty ...

Read "Imaginist" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Non solo due, come l'intestazione lascerebbe intendere, ma addirittura tre sono gli elementi che vengono a intersecarsi in questo ambizioso album: il quintetto jazz dei gemelli Le Boeuf, trentenni di natali californiani (Santa Cruz) e successiva formazione newyorchese, il quartetto d'archi Jack e, nella suite “A Dream" che occupa il cuore (e una buona metà) del ...

Le Boeuf Brothers + JACK Quartet: Imaginist

Read "Imaginist" reviewed by Mike Jacobs

If one were to reference the Le Boeuf Brothers previous recordings for what to expect from their latest effort with the JACK Quartet, Imaginist, they might indeed find a pattern of fine musicianship and compositional ability that would not mislead. But clear evidence would also be shown of the Le Boeuf's tendencies toward eclecticism and unpredictability. ...

Le Boeuf Deux Fois: Pascal's Triangle and Le Boeuf Brothers Remixed

Read "Le Boeuf Deux Fois: Pascal's Triangle and Le Boeuf Brothers Remixed" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The Le Boeuf Brothers--saxophonist Remy and pianist Pascal--don't box themselves into a jazz corner; or, perhaps it should be said that they don't box jazz into a corner, preferring instead to let it marinate in the juices of the present, where it can absorb new flavors and move in different directions. Both men ...

Le Boeuf Brothers Expand Into The World Of Kafka

Le Boeuf Brothers Expand Into The World Of Kafka

For many of today’s jazz listeners, it is difficult to define the connection between the music and what it expresses—if anything definite is being expressed at all. What is the music about? There is certainly an abundance of beauty in abstract improvisation, yet no matter how abstract, every solo we hear and every song remains a ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
