Le Boeuf Brothers

Originally from Santa Cruz, California, identical twin brothers Remy & Pascal Le Boeuf — saxophone & piano respectively — 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 went to Graz to study jazz at the University of Arts with Alex Deutsch, later changed to the Bruckner 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 Peter O'Mara brought him on tour in over 20 nations.

He started visiting New York City to study with drummers like Greg Hutchinson, Jonathan Blake and John Riley. In 2010 Peter moved to Brooklyn. He currently performs with Le Boeuf Brothers, Jaleel Shaw, John Ellis, Ricky Rodriguez, Florian Hoefner, The Real Life Show, and Ray Angry.

In 2010 he released his first record as a bandleader "Gloaming" with his own, New York based group Wayfarers. The band has toured Europe twice with great success.
