Album Notes
I thought after listening to Kahlil Kwame Bell’s
earlier recordings, he was going to run out of ideas
for a third release. I was wrong. He shocked me
again! I asked him about this live recording and his
reason for putting it out. He said, “ I needed to
document the experience of what my band does in a
venue. In a recording studio, I plan everything, so
to the listener it sounds very well thought out. This
release is about the individual band members that I
have been blessed to work with for over seven years
now. Each musician told his or her own story through
strong improvised solos within a structured piece of
musical art.” What about your work on the slappaphone
instrument? It sounds like you opened up more than
usual. “ Actually, because this is a live recording,
many people are curious to hear how I lead a band
using an unpopular percussion instrument like the
slappaphone. So my presence on it needed to be
established strongly through improvisation.” What
made you choose these songs? “ Since this is a two
disc set, I wanted four songs from the first recording
and four songs from the second recording. And, I also
wanted songs that each musician could shine on.” What
about drums and other percussion instruments that you
play, I noticed that you are only playing on the
slappaphone and kalimba, why is that? “ Well, this
recording is more about the stories that my band
members are telling through their instruments. But, I
must say that because I do not work with these two
instruments with other artists, it is crucial that my
audience hear me present something entirely different
from what I do with other performers. Thus, giving a
new perspective of my individual artistry.” Well
Kahlil, I am looking forward to your next release and
I wish you success in showing more of this slappaphone

Good sounds and good talant!
Live music at it best! A must have for anyone looking to hear great music performed live!

Sheila Anderson

Great music, brilliant solos, good energy!
In my opinion, live music is the best way to hear music. You get to hear the musicians stretch out on their instruments and the heartfelt applause from the audience. For you audiophiles the actual recording may not meet your approval but you can't deny the brilliance of the music and the musicians.
