Rarely does a young quartet include such a staggering variety of influences. Though firmly rooted in jazz composition, the Le Boeuf Brothers frequently, yet selectively, cite rock and electronic influences – music “stimulating enough that it holds to the values of jazz intellectuals… with emotional substance that is also nerdy enough to think about.” Bassist Linda Oh draws from the musical and cultural identities of Malaysia, Australia, and New York, while drummer Henry Cole brings his background in Puerto Rican folklore, funk and R&B, jazz, and Afro-Caribbean to the fray. The Le Boeuf Brothers, along with their “dream band” of Oh and Cole, will present and explore fresh ideas made possible only through such a varied collaboration.
