Jennifer Bellor stunningly unites jazz, opera, and classical on new album
(Published: January 13, 2017)

Her voice soars like a phoenix rising from the ashes; it is aflame with unbridled passion and emotional power. But even when Jennifer Bellor does not sing on her latest album, her intense vision and incandescent artistry rise to the heavens.

Bellor is a musician, singer, composer, and educator. Drawing upon classical, opera, and jazz influences, her new album Stay shifts between light and darkness but it is also the musical manifestation of her aspirations. The first track, "Chase the Stars," is a very powerful track that rattles the senses. While the melody is mesmerizing and full of deep feelings, it is Bellor's chant-like singing that gives life and confidence to the whole track. Rasar Amani's rapping skills also provides a different and unexpected flavor to the song. The music is well-balanced and synchronizes well with the lyrics, producing a hypnotic vibe that can positively affect its listeners. For those who prefer contemporary jazz with a twist, "Chase the Stars" is an absolute must.

"Moments Shared, Moments Lost" is a moving and beautiful track. This piece has the ability to induce melancholy and happiness depending on the listener's perception. It has a classy tune that will make someone reminisce all moments that were either shared or lost. Ivan Ivanov (clarinet) and Jae Ahn-Benton (electric organ) did a stellar job giving color to Bellor's composition.

The charismatic and alluring sound of "Nightingale" is undeniably one of the most haunting songs on Stay. Bellor is able to showcase her soprano chops in this song, and Christina Wright-Ivanova's piano completes the essence of the song. Together, they are able to create visionary music that can be compared to a nightingale humming in paradise.

Stay is diverse, stunning, and unique art that has a lot of flair and intensity. Bellor's fondness of exploring and fusing different forms of music results in an album that is dreamy and enchanting. It's like a piece of literature through the form of music. Every cut tells a story that is worth listening to and understanding.
