The young quintet featured Remy and Pascal Le Boeuf on alto sax and piano, Mike Ruby on tenor sax, Rick Rosato on bass, and Colin Stranahan on drums.
These young and innovative players were touring in support of their 2009 album “House Without a Door”

“This group has an impressively self-assured new album, “House Without a Door” which reaches for Pokies the gleaming cosmopolitanism of our present era.”
– New York Times
“House Without A Door is one of the most engaging and original albums to emerge in 2009. The brothers’ writing and playing is technically skilled, but unlike many other young jazz musicians they also invest both with some genuine emotion and originality. As a result, the entire album has a maturity that is rare in players who are barely into their early twenties.”
