Kneebody

Kneebody by Paulifornia

“a band filled with heavyweight improvisers but not bound by idiom” – Time Out New York

A “resolutely un-pindownable band” (The New York Times), Grammy-nominated quintet Kneebody generates explosive rock energy paralleled with high-level chamber ensemble playing, and highly wrought compositions balanced with adventurous no-holds-barred improvising. All “sounds-like” references can be set aside as the band has created a genre and style all its own. Made up of keyboardist Adam Benjamin, trumpeter Shane Endsley, electric bassist Kaveh Rastegar, saxophonist Ben Wendel and drummer Nate Wood, each band member has amassed an impressive list of credits and accomplishments over the years while continuing to thrive and grow in reputation, solidifying a fan base around the world. Kneebody draws upon influences spanning D’Angelo’s Voodoo to music by Bill Frisell, and Miles Davis. Their live shows are known for intense sonic landscapes of the Radiohead ilk along with the harmonic depth and improvisational freedom experienced at a Brad Mehldau concert. “Cohesion is the truest constant in the music of Kneebody, a band that inhabits the borderland abutted by post-bop, indie-rock, and hip-hop, without seeming to give much thought to the borders” (The New York Times).
