Musician and composer Michael Landau was born and raised in Los Angeles.
He grew up with the music of The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Cream
and The Band. His grandfather arranged and played woodwinds during the swing era
with the Dorsey Brothers and Benny Goodman. In his early teens, Michael quickly became
very interested in jazz and electric jazz music. Weather Report, Pat Martino and Jaco Pastorius
were some of his early obsessions. From this diverse blend of influence, his sound and
path began to take shape. His current group focuses on the improvisation and spontaneity
of live shows
