Le Boeuf Brothers/JACK Quartet: Imaginist *

Album Remarks & Appraisals:

This new release is a concept album collaboration between genre-bending jazz artists, The Le Boeuf Brothers, and the contemporary music string quartet, the JACK Quartet. The album’s centerpiece is a narrated arrangement of the Franz Kafka short story, “A Dream.” Paul Whitworth narrates for this recording. The score intricately weaves together three elements: the jazz quintet, a string quartet, and narration, making for a fascinating listening experience. 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) Remy is a virtuosic saxophonist and Pascal is an equally adept pianist. They have been praised for their “impressive level of sophistication” (San Francisco Chronicle) and their aim to “pursue a hyperfluent streamlined modern ideal.” (Modern Times) The JACK Quartet is “the go-to quartet for contemporary music, tying impeccable musicianship to intellectual ferocity and a take-no-prisoners sense of commitment.” (Washington Post) The group has won multiple awards, including the prestigious Lincoln Center’s Martin E. Segal Award.
