The Le Boeuf Brothers, Remy and Pascal, are set to release a new album soon with the accompaniment of the JACK Quartet. imaginist, based on the early 20th Century Russian poetry movement, particularly in regard to the works of Franz Kafka, melds the innovative saxophone and piano playing twin brothers with the nine-piece chamber ensemble to create a melding of contemporary classical and jazz music. It’s an artful approach that will make for an interesting release this coming October 14th on New Focus/Panoramic Recordings. Check out the video for the first single, “Pretenders” featuring saxophonist Ben Wendel, after the jump.
