Remy Le Boeuf Quartet
Described by the New York Times as a musically precocious saxophonist and composer who embodies the gleaming cosmopolitanism of our present era, Remy Le Boeuf has performed and had his works featured throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. Known for his integration of classical, jazz, and indie-rock genres, Mr. Le Boeuf has received many of todays most prestigious honors and awards for composition and performance. While envisioning his approach to composition and improvisation as never veering far from the roots of language, Le Boeuf often employs literary elements to fuel his compositions. Le Boeuf has worked with a range of collaborators including the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, JACK Quartet, Knower, Linda Oh, and his own twin brother Pascal, with whom he co-leads the Grammy-nominated ensemble, Le Boeuf Brothers.
After receiving his bachelors and masters degrees from the Manhattan School of Music in 2009, Le Boeuf has gone on to receive commissions and awards from SFJAZZ, Chamber Music America, The Jerome Foundation, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, American Composers Forum, New York Youth Symphony, Keio University, BMI, Copland House, and the ASCAP Foundation.
Le Boeuf's recent release, Light as a Word (2019), is an unfettered artistic vision of profound musical empathy, a series of sonic dialogues in which a fantastic band digs deeper and deeper into its technical and emotional chemistry. Coming out in May 2019 on the Outside in Music label.
Le Boeuf often employs literary elements to fuel his compositions as in his recent collaborative album imaginist (2016)a collaboration between Le Boeuf Brothers and JACK Quartet. 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.
Past Le Boeuf Brothers projects include House Without A Door (2009) "an impressively self-assured new album, which reaches for the gleaming cosmopolitanism of our present era" (New York Times); In Praise of Shadows (2011), which "deftly blends elements of electronica with touches of indie rock and sophisticated jazz writing on this genre-defying project" (JazzTimes); and Remixed an "open-minded and masterfully crafted precursor of things to come" (All About Jazz) featuring remix collaborations with David Binney, Knower, Tim Lefebvre, and others.
Le Boeuf was born and in Santa Cruz, CA and currently resides is a Brooklyn, NY. He is currently anticipating the recording of a full-length album by his own jazz orchestra, Assembly of Shadows.
