Trombonist Shawn Bell’s playing has been called “soulful” and “captivatingly quirky.” While Jazz has been the driving force behind Bell’s training and education, he has earned a reputation as a dynamic journeyman, always ready to play the gig at hand. This commitment to making music not bound by the doctrine of a single style or genre has given Bell a unique voice as a musician and composer.

“Solid playing and writing, a great tone and a young, untamed spirit.”-Midwest Records Review
