Album Notes
Lori Bell, winner of the 2011 & 2014 Global Music Awards. The Award of Excellence and Gold Medal for "Lori Bell" CD, depth of playing, compositions and arrangements.

Brooklyn native Lori Bell is a flutist and composer of admirable depth and broad musical sympathies. She has contributed to the development of higher standards of performance while earning acclaim from both peers and critics for her artistry on stage and in recordings.

Born in a musical family, Bell's father was a big band lead trumpet player in NYC for 30 years while her mother played accordion with a great ear for both jazz and classical music. Now in the third decade of her acclaimed career, Lori has recorded 9 albums, including releases for Discovery Records, Websters Last Word, Beezwax Records, Resonance Records and Azica Records/Naxos, worked with luminaries Dave Mackay, Nnenna Freelon, Peter Erskine, Toninho Horta, Bob Magnusson, and Fekete-Kovács Kornél and performed at such prestigious venues as The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, SOKA Performing Arts Center in Southern California, and Wadsworth Theater at UCLA.

"It's hard to imagine a more synergistic gathering of virtuosity, freedom and the sheer joy of musical conversation." Bird Magazine

“Bell’s playing on C and alto flute is gorgeous. She is a talent on whom to keep one's ears trained.” Los Angeles Times

Her debut on Discovery Records, “Love Will Win” with pianist Dave Mackay and bassist Andy Simpkins, received warm praise and four and a half stars (out of five) from the esteemed Leonard Feather and was selected on the Grammy list for Best New Artist in 1983. A second Discovery disc, “Take Me To Brazil”, demonstrated her ability to maintain a high level of inspiration. This album featured the first of several fine original compositions and was enthusiastically given four stars by the Los Angeles Times in 1989.
Revered for her innovative interpretations of Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington, Jazz Improv Magazine exuded, "One cannot help but be very intrigued by Lori's technical and improvisational ease. She is a remarkable flute player.” In 2011 & 2014, Bell won 'Awards of Excellence' at the Global Music Awards for her depth of playing, composing and arranging which led to her appointment by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Music Library to contribute to a project of jazz arrangements and classical compositions. In addition to being a recording artist, she’s Instructor of Flute in jazz faculty at San Diego State University.

"One of the finest virtuoso flutists of our time" Latin Jazz Network

Currently, Lori is touring a concert program called “From Bach to Bebop”, and is teaching both classical technique and jazz improvisation as instructor of flute at San Diego State University.
