Kneebody’s sound is…explosive rock energy paralleled with high-level nuanced chamber ensemble playing with highly wrought compositions that are balanced with adventurous no-holds-barred improvising. All “sounds-like” references can be set aside; Kneebody has created a genre and style all its own, changing the expectations of what jazz is. Anti-Hero, released in 2017, “revs you up, then chills you out, they’ve created a vehicle that lets us simply enjoy the ride” (DownBeat). An equal sharing of leadership has allowed Kneebody to develop their own musical language, inventing a unique cueing system that allows them each to change the tempo, key, style, and more in an instant.
