He is the “Kool” in Kool and the Gang.
For a half-century and counting, Robert “Kool” Bell has anchored one of funk’s most commercially and artistically successful recording and performing artists. Drawing from jazz and rhythm & blues, Bell ranks among the masters of his genre – plying definitive pocket grooves which master rhythm, space and melody rather than flashy technique.
A finger and slap style player, Bell’s influence on bassists is incalculable – and he’s likely been sampled over a million times.
