The Arthur Kell Quartet are in high demand, with 14 European tours over the past 8 years, including Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Madrid Jazz Festival and the Jazz And More Festival (Romania).
Bassist-composer Arthur Kell fronts a crew of top-shelf improvisers teaming up with alto saxophonist Loren Stillman, guitarist Brad Shepik, drummer Mark Ferber on this captivating quartet outing. Performances hop from infectious, energy charged movements, to avant-groove-oriented Ornette Coleman style writing to intelligent moody and mysterious pieces.
Arthur Kell has emerged as one of the most original voices on today's New York jazz scene. His compositions, designed with strong melodies and open structures, keep the focus on group interaction and the impulse of the soloists. Arthur's ability to fit seamlessly into any musical context has made him much in demand as a sideman. Working with Thomas Chapin, Bobbie Previte, Sam Newsome, Christian Howes, Jonathan Kreisberg, Art Baron, Matt Wilson, Bernard Purdie and Bill McHenry to name a few.
“thoughtful compositions brought into a very liberated space, eschewing technical display in favour of subtle group interplay." Cormac Larkin, Irish Times
"This is music beyond the chart; it is sentient art, challenging listeners with incongruent lines and exhilarating, exacting conversations. It is volatile, daring jazz." Jordan Richardson, Blinded by Sound
"Everything that modern jazz should be: vibrant, challenging music from a band so tight within its group dynamic and so confident in its individualistic chops that every movement is a lively step forward”. Jazz Improv Magazine
