Man for man, you would be extremely hard pressed to find a trio more capable, more accomplished, more musically imaginative and simply more formidably jaw dropping than one comprising guitarist Michael Landau, bassist Reggie Hamiltonand drummer Gary Novak— one of several permutations of the estimable Michael Landau Group. When it comes to consummate musicianship, each is a total monster.
MICHAEL LANDAU is a renowned and long-acclaimed Los Angeles session ace who has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s, with artists as varied as Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, B.B. King, Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Seal and James Taylor, to name only a few. Landau has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water, the Ringers, Renegade Creation (with fellow guitar great Robben Ford) and his own Michael Landau Group, which is variously composed of Landau and whatever ace rhythm section and special guests he recruits.
