Le Boeuf Brothers

Aug 8, Saturday - 7pm
RBC Silicon Valley Stage

The Le Boeuf Brothers have developed a unique and intelligent sound by fusing their firm jazz roots with a fresh, forward-thinking blend of indie-rock, classical and electronic music. Identical twin brothers Remy and Pascal Le Boeuf (playing saxophone and piano respectively) are best known for their innovative compositional projects.

The duo, originally from Santa Cruz and now established in New York City, have raised their prominent musical voices as both performers and composers. Recent projects include a New Jazz Works grant from Chamber Music America to write a series of pieces for the Le Boeuf Brothers and JACK String Quartet based on the short stories of Franz Kafka. Additionally, the brothers received an Astral Grant from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, Best Album in the Independent Music Awards, and were awarded first place in the International Songwriting Competition.

On their albums In Praise of Shadows and Le Boeuf Brothers Remixed, they expand upon the jazz tradition by continuing to sculpt their compositions after the initial recording process, using modern production techniques, sampling, and layered arranging and recording methods. This new direction lays the foundation for the next decade of jazz innovation.
