Bellatrex is a jazz group based in St. Paul, Minnesota. The founders, pianist Laura Fleming and vocalist/sax player Donna Wilson, met in the summer of 2003. A year later, they started Bellatrex. Atmosphere is their debut CD! The music of Bellatrex features inventive originals that are influenced by jazz, blues, and rock. Press on Bellatrex: '...varying moods from funky to soulful to wistful to pure joy; mostly gentle rhythms but never lulling; lyrics that command attention.' -Andrea Canter; Jazz Police 'Bellatrex turns life's joys, ironies, and possibilities into a beautiful listening experience that makes you want to stand up and live, love and laugh.' - Lynda Olsen; staff writer from Rice Lake Chronotype 'Still sitting here, listening (again). Trying to pick a favorite track. So far I've narrowed it to five or six....Well done Bellatrex.' -Jeff Southern; website guestbook entry 'Beautiful. Soulful. Classic.
