Remy Le Boeuf has performed and had his works featured throughout North America, Europe, and Asia.  Known for his integration of jazz, classical, and indie-rock genres, Mr. Le Boeuf has received many of today’s 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. His recent chamber music projects include “A Dream: The Musical Imagination of Franz Kafka” commissioned by Chamber Music America’s New Jazz Works for a composition based on Franz Kafka’s short story, “A Dream.”  Additionally, Mr. Le Boeuf has received commissions and awards from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, The Jerome Foundation, The American Composers Forum, SFJAZZ, The ASCAP Foundation, The Independent Music Awards, Downbeat Magazine, Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund in The New York Community Trust, The Jordan Berk Memorial Prize for Composition, North American Saxophone Alliance, International Songwriting Competition, and Saxophone Idol.

As a sideman, Le Boeuf has toured as part of the Grammy Award-winning Bob Mintzer Big Band, as well as with Dayna Stephens’ band, Linda Oh, JACK Quartet, the Alan Ferber Expanded Ensemble, Le Boeuf Brothers, and indie-pop sensation Wildcat! Wildcat!
