Le Boeuf Brothers
Originally from Santa Cruz, California, identical twin brothers Remy & Pascal Le Boeuf — saxophone & piano
moved to New York in 2004 where they established their prominent
musical voices as performers and composers.
In 2004, Pascal became the youngest person ever to receive the
ASCAP/IAJE Commission in honor of Quincy Jones featuring Chris Potter,
Marcus Gilmore and John Benitez among others. More recently in 2011,
Remy received a New Jazz Works grant from Chamber Music America to
write a series of pieces for the Le Boeuf Brothers and the Myth String
Quartet based on the short stories of Franz Kafka. Additionally, the
brothers received Independent Music Awards for Best Album &
Best Song in 2006, an Astral Grant from the National Foundation for
Advancement in the Arts in 2008, and were awarded 1st place in the
International Songwriting Competition in 2010.
The Le Boeuf Brothers have also toured internationally and performed at
the Monterey Jazz Festival, Umbria Jazz Festival, Montreal Jazz
Festival, the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Jazz @ Lincoln Center.
Their latest album is "In Praise of Shadows".
Martin Nevin grew up in Los Angeles and started playing electric bass and guitar
when he was 12 years old. After hearing his first Thelonious Monk record, he became
deeply interested in jazz and picked up the upright bass. In 2006 Martin received
a scholarship to attend Manhattan School of Music, where he studied
bass with Jay Anderson and David Grossman, and composition with Michael Patterson.
Since then he has performed and/or recorded with notable artists such as
Jason Moran, Ambrose Akinmusire, Joe Lovano, and Aaron Parks, and performed
in venues such as The Jazz Gallery, Smalls, the Deer Head Inn, and
Kuumbwa Jazz Center.
Born and raised in Salzburg, Austria, drummer Peter Kronreif

University Linz, where he completed his Bachelor's Degree of
Arts in 2007 with first class-honors. Kronreif went on studying with
Doug Hammond and later, in the master's program, with Jeff Boudreaux.
Between 2005 and 2010 Peter Kronreif spent most of his time in Vienna.
Working with, amongst others, Harry Sokal, Martin Reiter,
Matthieu Michel, Alegre Correa, Bastian Stein, Ana Paola DaSilva and
