Press for Landon Knoblock and the Landon Knoblock Trio

“ . . . three musicians who concentrate on the most essential musical elements, intent and inspired in the creation of a modern music, carefully crafted and direct, and with impressive interplay.”

Fabio Ciminiera, jazz-convention.net

“[Landon Knoblock] gives great attention to the language, to his nuances, and to the compositions as if they were a transmitter for his own emotions.”

www.CamJazz.com

“The pianist Landon Knoblock, from Miami by way of Brooklyn, has quietly been making waves for his reflective and lyrical style.”

The New York Times

“The sound of this trio is elegant and solemn, like a gunman at noon, ready for a shootout.”

Federico Scoppio, musicologist and writer

“Under its elegant, patinaed surface, “Listening Between” reveals . . . a sincere passion for music which Knoblock manages to express with a few essential brush strokes”a gift not all musicians have.”

Roberto De Virtis, jazz-convention.net

“Landon Knoblock is an honest musician . . . He performed on the piano with ranging confidence, and everything was fair game -- note clusters, sonic bursts, silence, internal plucking . . . a challenging set that pushed his young audience, rather than pandered to them.”

John Matouk, About.com:jazz

“ . . . a superb pianist and one of the young lions of jazz . . .”
