A duo with more swing than a golf club. As lovesome as a Tuck and Patti duet. Flute flows like water, effortless and fun.
From the opening strains of “Bell’s Blues,” it’s evident that something special is going on. Bell exhibits a gorgeous, liquid tone and luxuriant vibrato over the manic comping and wickedly swinging bass line of Satterfield, which elevates his partner into a wild solo that crests with a snippet of the Sonny Rollins classic “Blue Seven.” Out of nowhere, he cranks up the intensity with ebullient scatting. "Bell's Blues" appears on blue(s), Bell's 10th studio album.
