Biography

Landon Knoblock is a pianist, a composer, and an improviser. He also plays keyboards, like the Wurlitzer electric piano, the Fender Rhodes, and the MS2000 synthesizer. The first music Knoblock ever played was improvised. He was three. After that came beginner songs and classical music. At the age of 10, he taught himself the music of Billie Joel and Elton John. It was around this time that his Uncle Wayne gave him a large collection of vinyl records, containing such classics as Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”, Steely Dan’s “The Royal Scam”, and Van Halen “5150”. After absorbing these paramount albums of music history, Knoblock rediscovered improvisation, with some like minded middle school band mates. Forming a band in 7th grade with a drummer and bass player, Knoblock and friends likened themselves after the Grateful Dead torchbearers Phish, and other groups that incorporated rock songs and improvisation. Sometime during the next six years of religiously holding band practice in the garage every Sunday, Knoblock discovered jazz. It was Coltrane “Giant Steps”, Miles “Kind of Blue”, and other seminal albums of the tradition. Next came some schooling, a couple of degrees, and a seven year stint in the sub tropics of Miami. In a wedding band.
