Exciting eclectic jazz Arthur Kell Speculation Quartet – Live at LunÀtico

Exciting eclectic jazz Arthur Kell Speculation Quartet – LIVE AT LUNÀTICO:  Bassist Kell’s upcoming release (17 November, 2023) is certainly among the best of the exciting eclectic jazz albums we’ve had the pleasure to review (yet) in 2023… first, here’s a short clip of the group performing together…

You’ll find a few other performances to enjoy when you SUBSCRIBE to Arthur’s YouTube channel – and hopefully, more will be added from this new release as it comes closer to the street date.

In addition to Arthur’s brilliant bass work, you’ll hear Brad Shepik – guitar; Nate Radley – guitar and Allan Mednard – drums… after my second listen through all ten tantalizing tunes, it was easy to make my choice for personal favorite… the 10:00 “Haflat Zifaf” is full of rich atmospherics and creative originality… it’s actually one of my personal favorites for the year 2023!

You’ll find many more tasty tunes when you visit Arthur’s Spotify channel (below), or you can purchase the album on the Origin Records page for the release.  These ol’ ears give this gem of an album a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.
