"Assembly of Shadows" Debut Recording

Hi, my name is Remy Le Boeuf, and I am asking for your help to record the debut album of my 19-member jazz orchestra, Assembly of Shadows.  If you like my music, you can help in the process of its creation!

Over the last three years I have discovered a new side of my musical identity as I’ve enjoyed composing music for jazz orchestras around the world. After composing and premiering dozens of pieces, I am finally ready to record.  

This is no normal album—it involves 19 musicians, two days in the recording studio, a producer, conductor, videographer, graphic designer, recording engineer, a week of editing, a week of mixing and mastering, rehearsal space, a publicist, and a whole lot of love.

The Assembly of Shadows jazz orchestra is comprised of some of my favorite (seriously talented) musicians. By donating to the creation of this recording, you won’t only be supporting me, you will be supporting my bandmates as well. If you live in New York, you can come see us live on December 7th at the Jazz Gallery!

Please consider sharing this video after you donate. Every view will help me get closer to my goal.

Of course, I have some incentives to help get you involved…
