Congratulations to Santa Cruz native Pascal Le Boeuf, the brilliant jazz pianist who scored a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Composition for his song “Snapshots.” You might remember Pascal and his identical twin brother, Remy Le Boeuf, growing up as jazz prodigies in Santa Cruz back in the 1990s. Each brother has carved out an amazing career as a performer, recording artist and teacher. And Pascal now joins saxophonist Remy as a Grammy nominee (in the same category).

The best news is that locals can see the brothers — now 36 — live and in person when they visit Kuumbwa Jazz Center on April 27. They’ll perform with their quintet original compositions from their new album, “Hush.”
