about

“imaginist” is a unique concept album collaboration between genre bending jazz artists, the LeBoeuf Brothers, and the virtuoso contemporary music string quartet, the JACK Quartet. The album’s centerpiece is a narrated setting of the Franz Kafka masterpiece short story, “A Dream,” here narrated by Paul Whitworth. The textures alternate between word painting the quixotic story to open improvised sections, featuring the agile playing of the Le Boeuf Brothers and their collaborators, and string heavy sections highlighting the JACK’s well coordinated palette of extended timbres.
