Her mastery of the flute adds a distinct and mesmerizing element to the quartet’s sound. Joining Lori Bell is Melonie Grinnell on piano, whose dynamic and expressive playing enriches the group’s harmonic palette. Evona Wascinski contributes her melodic and rhythmic expertise on the bass, anchoring the quartet’s sound with precision and groove. Completing the ensemble is the talented percussionist Monette Marino, whose intricate rhythms and textures add depth and vitality to the quartet’s performances.
