This is not merely "Jazz with Strings" or "Classical Compositions for Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble." This is an integration of a string quartet and classical approach to their jazz sound and sensibility that is so encompassing, it creates something generically unique from those components.
This is testament to the flexibility and vision of not only the Le Boeufs and their group, but of the JACK as well, as their role in the proceedings is often nothing like that of a conventional string quartet.
There are undoubtedly those who will initially be put off this -those who would perhaps wish there to be music, sans narration.
But discovering the delicate acrobatic synergy between the two might eventually quell those wishes.
There are times when jazz flavors hold sway over classical ones, and vice versa, but they are more often Yin and Yang to a wholly different stylistic abstraction.
So different in fact, that it may require several passes to acclimate to the environs created here -but that doesn't keep the Le Boeuf Brothers from upping the ante.
We have unique experience in buying, trading and selling estate jewellery.
We have hundreds of previously owned items such as: diamond rings, gold coins, bracelets, earrings, pendants etc.In fact this ring was made in 1858, exactly 100 years before Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers was established.England has a long tradition of stamping every item made from precious metal with a series of hallmarks.One that brings into greater relief the Le Boeuf's unspoken, intuitive narratives that run through the album's other tracks.The scattershot urgency of "Alkaline" and the foreboding ambiance / driving minimalism of the two-part "Exquisite Corpse" cease to insinuate music alone., they might indeed find a pattern of fine musicianship and compositional ability that would not mislead.
