is a new dialogue in the conversation between music and poetry that integrates the explosive poetic voice of Quincy Troupe with the rhythmic guitar and intriguing vocal styling (blues, funk, jazz, ballads) of musician Kelvyn Bell. SoundArt delivers a dynamic, refreshingly funky, feisty sound that haunts the listener long after the set is over.
Praise for SoundArt
"Quincy as a poet is at the top of his form...perfect command as a reader, scatter and song-chanter.
...There was much to smile about. Troupe and Bell have worked out intricate and soulful arrangements of fourteen Troupe poems for guitar and voice. Kelvyn Bell is a guitar player who could play with just about anyone in any musical setting. Without ever competing with the voice, he grinded out blues, strutted through soul, jangled big jazz chords and strode through some grimy St. Louis rock & roll." Chris King, St. Louis American.
