 Jonny Greenwood Biography - AOL Music
Along with Thom Yorke's inimitable vocals, Jonny Greenwood's wide array of unconventional sonic textures helped to define Radiohead's distinctive sound and push the boundaries of their music into unusual and decidedly non-rock directions.
Jonny Greenwood, who was a couple of years younger than the other four, repeatedly asked to play with the group; he was finally invited to play harmonica with On a Friday at a 1987 gig at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford.

 Radiohead - Jonny Greenwood
Jonny has to be the most talented, and original guitarist I've ever seen.
Jonny is. In later albums, he's been making more subtle additions to the songs with different instruments, but from Pablo Honey to OK Computer, Jonny's guitar is the original and beautiful driving force behind the music.
Jonny is a shy person who doesn't enjoy interviews because he feels he comes across as an idiot.

 Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller / Reggae Compilation (Album Review)
On Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood took a completely different approach than Laswell did to the Trojan vault.
Greenwood’s taste is impeccable, and he has succeeded brilliantly in pulling off the difficult feat of compiling a song selection that is, at once, challenging and familiar without being alienating.
Greenwood’s love of the music is evident in the enthusiastic and informative liner notes that he composed to outline his reason for choosing each of the songs on Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller.

 Jonny Greenwood: Bodysong: Pitchfork Record Review
It was with those two bursts of distorted beauty that Jonny Greenwood scripted himself into the vocabulary of rock, and left his first mark on music history.
On stage, Greenwood jeers back and forth, alternating between crouching in front of his varied arsenal of effects (which includes a transistor radio, a vintage patchbay, a laptop, and a number of guitar pedals), to gently lilting in front of his Ondes-Martenot, to heroically pounding notes out of his trademark telecaster.
Greenwood is the consummate rock multi-instrumentalist, and the music he has composed for Bodysong perfectly reflects this heterogeneous ambition.

 Various Artists: Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller: Pitchfork Record Review
Now comes Greenwood with his own mix, Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller, a troll through Trojan Records' vast vaults for some of the guitarist's favorite reggae and dub tracks.
The compilation marks the rare opportunity for Greenwood to show off a part of Radiohead's creative compass, sure, but it's also yet another excuse for Trojan to repackage and rebrand its back catalog-- this time recontextualized by the endorsement of one of rock's most trusted tastemakers.
Modest to the core, Greenwood didn't exactly dig up the most obscure singles and mixes he could find-- that might be a little too hip.

 Jonny Greenwood - Bodysong Review - sputnikmusic
Greenwood puts in a bit of electronic noise and bends the pitch up and down rapidly to make the song a little loopy.
Although Greenwood proves himself brilliant at composing and arranging his own music, the line between genius and insanity is very blurred.
Still, Bodysong is a fantastic listen that shows off the compositional talents of Jonny Greenwood to their fullest extent.

 Paste Magazine :: News :: Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood composes film score (Page 1)
Greenwood, taking advantage of some time off from Radiohead, began to write and record the new material with Radiohead engineer Graeme Stewart at the band's Oxford studio over six months.
Greenwood's score takes the place of narration in the dialogue-free film, which pieces together footage from various film libraries around the world spanning the past 100 years.
On Bodysong, Greenwood is given full reign to explore his most experimental leanings, fusing together a suite of instrumental vignettes which draw inspiration from the further reaches of avant-garde—musique-concrete, minimalism and modern jazz among them.

You probably know that Jonny Greenwood is in Radiohead, possibly one of your favorite bands, and you're wondering if it's worth your hard earned cash to pick up this album.
And like Philip Glass' astounding musical visions of the images in 'Qatsi', Jonny Greenwood's score is wholly engrossing and a creative realization of the subject matter of the documentary, not to mention the first true testament to Greenwood's ambitious but remarkable compositional skills.
Guitar riffs or no, the music Jonny Greenwood has created on Bodysong is a pure translation of image to sound, and an impressive step into the world of composition.

 Paste Magazine :: Review :: Jonny Greenwood - Bodysong :: Capitol (Page 1)
Jonny Greenwood's Bodysong is the first full-length extracurricular project released by a member of Radiohead.
But anyone who's seen Greenwood put his guitar down at a show and hunch over his effect pedals while simultaneously manipulating a transistor radio and a wall of Moog modules could have told you that.
Greenwood's considerable use of live strings and horns traces back to Kid A's "The National Anthem," while tracks like "Trench" feature the sonic manipulation and sound masking in the rhythm section that has characterized Radiohead's last three albums.

 The Yale Herald - March 8, 2007 - Jonny Greenwood
Jonny Greenwood is the controller here, but for once this controllership is more an experiment in music/art historical curation than the usual grandiose self-exhibition of going solo.
For any music-appreciation-inclined person at all, it stands alone as an easy anthology of the stylistically nibbled yet little-digested genre known as reggae—and by stylistically nibbled, I cite potheads who obligatorily claim to be really into Bob Marley but think he actually wrote that song “Come to Jamaica” as it appears in Sandals resort commercials.
Says Greenwood in the liner notes: “You could listen to one style of music exclusively for the rest of your life, and it [would] all be great, and varied, and worth hearing.”

 PIXELSURGEON | Reviews | Gigs | The London Sinfonietta and Jonny Greenwood
Last year's Ether concerts—a collaboration between the London Sinfonietta and Warp Records at the Royal Festival Hall in London—was such a mindblowing experience that I was sure I'd be in the stalls for this year's concert, which featured the Sinfonietta with Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, who would be premiering several compositions.
Ether is not Jonny's first experience with an orchestra: during a previous Radiohead break he wrote the music to a movie, Body Song, which led to a commission to write Smear for The London Sinfonietta's pianist John Constable and a tenure with the BBC's concert orchestra.
My admiration for Jonny Greenwood has grown, especially for his interesting orchestrations and arrangements, but I hope that next year Ether collaborates with an artist or group of artists who can kick some life and puissance back into the mix.

 Bodysong - Jonny Greenwood - Music Reviews
The varied sounds of Jonny Greenwood's score for the British documentary Bodysong will come as no surprise to hyper-attentive fans of Radiohead, whether they've devoured every interview with the multi-instrumentalist or have studied every detail of his contributions to that band.
A string quartet is present on four tracks, drums and horns factor in on two tracks filled with nervous energy, and brother/bandmate Colin Greenwood provides bass on another.
Jonny Greenwood manages to create sounds that follow the film's basic structure (conception, birth, growing up, growing old, dying) without falling into the trap of obvious sonic signifiers (say, a newborn-sounding violin's wail or death-rattle percussion).

 CD REVIEW: VARIOUS ARTISTS, JONNY GREENWOOD IS THE CONTROLLER | Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood
With so many dub and reggae reissues flooding the bins on both sides of the Atlantic, very often what separates the wheat from the chaff is the funky obscurity of the tracks in question.
Jonny Greenwood—well-known to readers here as lead guitarist for Radiohead (and brother to bassist Colin Greenwood)—confesses "panic at not feeling qualified" to assemble a compilation for the famed Trojan label, but he needn't have worried.
Greenwood should be commended for his discerning ear, especially for such choices as Lee "Scratch" Perry's "Black Panta" (which opened the 1973 breakthrough classic Blackboard Jungle Dub) and Johnny Clarke's obscure "Ruffer Version" (mixed in 1976 by King Tubby).

 Bodysong Soundtrack - Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead | Album Review @ Music-Critic.com : the source for music reviews, ...
Yorkie gets a lot of heat for trying to turn the band away from Epic Rawkstuff, but I was always pretty convinced that Greenwood was involved in the experimental side of Radiohead.
So it didn’t really surprise me to realize that Bodysong, Greenwood’s soundtrack to a film by Simon Pummell, sounded very much like the last three Radiohead albums: elusive, fraught with electrotension, avant-jazz and blipster soundscapes bordering each other or hooking up, strange time signatures, the whole thing.
Greenwood is clearly a composer to be reckoned with, if he ever gets into it a bit more.
