“Jazz is the type of music that can absorb so many things and still be jazz.” – Sonny Rollins
The Bell Trio is a jazz trio consisting of guitarist Brian Smith, bassist Luca Lombardi and percussionist Louis Romanos. These three musicians have been performing together in various ensembles over the past few years and all have been featured performers on the Linger Longer Concert Series. This collaboration was formed so the artists could push themselves technically and creatively in a small jazz trio setting. The Bell Trio likes to mix together popular styles and a bit of classical sensibility into the jazz repertoire. From reinvented jazz standards, to jazz versions of popular tunes, to original pieces, there is a little something for everyone to enjoy with many happy surprises along the way.
