Part of what makes Kneebody so enthralling is the way that each of the musicians peels off to pursue individual projects. Wendel has recorded a series of gorgeous, intricately arranged chamber jazz sessions and contributed to albums by leading improvisers such as pianists Gerald Clayton, Taylor Eigsti and Tigran Hamasyan. Nate Wood has a one-man band project in which he plays drums, bass and keyboards, when he’s not touring as a bassist in Donny McCaslin’s band. And Rastegar has thrived touring with John Legend and Sia and writing songs for acts such as Bruno Mars, Meshell Ndegeocello, De La Soul and Ciara. He just released a new solo album, “Light of Love” (Ropeadope).
