There are occasionally bell videos that pop up around the internet that leave me speechless. This is one of them. This group of talented musicians has perfected the art of big band swing on bells.
Perfectly timed runs? Check.
Strong, driving bass line? Check.
All the insane jazz chord changes? Check.
Basically, perfection in a video.
I’m not 100% sure who to credit this video to, but I believe the group is related to the Kinjo Gakuin University Handbell choir. Who ever they are, I am in awe. And I bet Glenn Miller would be impressed.
