One of the world's foremost modern jazz groups, Kneebody, exudes rock 'n' roll energy with chamber music sensibilities and dynamic, angular compositions. They're a communal group collecting the sax and trumpet work of Ben Wendel and Shane Endsley, respectively. With the keyboard skills of Adam Benjamin and the bass and drums rhythm section of Kaveh Rastegar and Nate Wood, Kneebody have developed a genre all their own.

The group happily takes on the "jazz" moniker, however, proceeding to alter listeners expectations of what "jazz" is. Though each player keeps a busy schedule of his own, they will always return to this band, bringing with them new influences that contribute to Kneebody's constant evolution.
