Many have attempted to classify Kneebody's music, but so far, none of these labels have stuck. A quintet of expert instrumentalists, including a saxophonist, trumpeter, keyboardist, electric bassist and drummer, Kneebody looks like a jazz-fusion band. But their influences draw on everyone from D'Angelo to Elliott Smith to Bill Frisell and Miles Davis. They combine the sonic landscapes of Radiohead with the improvisational freedom of Brad Mehldau. They've even invented their own unique cueing system that allows each musician to instantly change the tempo, key, style or anything else he can think of. Incredibly, the music doesn't just sound like a free-for-all; the compositions are nuanced and structured. In 2009, Kneebody and Theo Bleckmann scored a Grammy nomination for their arrangements of 20th-century American composer Charles Ives' songs. Now they're bringing their unique sound to The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center.The tickets identified in this promotion are made available through Goldstar.
