Recognized at the 2016 Global Music Awards for ‘Outstanding Achievement’ in arrangement, composition and improvisation, virtuoso flutist Lori Bell has been invited to partake in the 23rd Annual Jazz In The Pines Festival in Idyllwild, California.
Nestled among the tall pines of the San Jacinto Mountains in Riverside, CA, the 2-day fest runs August 20-21, with an additional night of VIP Patron activities on Friday August 19. Set to take the Main Stage on Sunday August 21 from 2:30-4:00pm, the Lori Bell Quartet will showcase selections from her critically acclaimed 9th album, Brooklyn Dreaming, which DownBeat Magazine lauded with 4-stars, proclaiming Bell “an improvisational shapeshifter.”
Co-pilots on her adventurous San Jacinto tour de force are renown pianist Bill Cunliffe (Buddy Rich, Frank Sinatra, Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra), bassist Katie Thiroux (Eric Reed, Charles McPherson, Geri Allen) and drummer Matt Witek (John Pizzarelli Quartet, Larry Fuller Trio, John Clayton). Presented by the Idyllwild Arts Foundation, other Jazz In The Pines performers include Diane Schuur, Ernie Watts, Graham Dechter, Jeff Hamilton, Larry Fuller, Casey Abrams and American Idol alum Haley Reinhart.
