Arthur Kell


Arthur Kell (bassist, composer) is one of the most original voices on todays New York jazz scene. For the past twenty years, he has played with an amazing cross-section of the most influential contemporary jazz musicians in New York City and around the world. For example, in the 1980s Arthur played extensively with artists such as Thomas Chapin (Spirits Rebellious Quintet), Bobbie Previte, Shelley Hirsch, Fred Ho and Marc Ribot, and also played numerous dates with Billy Bang and Mark Feldman. This wide experience and versatility are reflected in Arthurs playing and writing. His compositions and his improvisations draw on many diverse influences, which makes for very entertaining and compelling listening. Arthurs ability to fit seamlessly into any musical context has made him much in demand as a sideman. Recently, he has been working with the likes of Sam Newsome, Armen Donelian, Dave Berkman, Cliff Korman, Guillermo Klein, Christian Howes, John Stetch, Bruce Barth and the Finnish singer, Sanni Orasmaa. He was paired with Bernard Purdie on a 2000 recording by Peggy Stern (Koch Intl) and with Matt Wilson on a 2003 recording by guitarist Andy Green that was produced by John McNeil.
