Portrait Bellevue is a group of three musicians with a common passion for exploring freely the quirky, bittersweet heartache of Jazz. The group enjoys bringing out the more unusual colours inherent in the music they play, sometimes using the darker shades to emphasize the tragic, sometimes using the brighter tones to comic effect.
Their canvases range from songs famously performed by Billie Holiday and Nina Simone to the compositions of Charles Mingus, Cole Porter, Thelonious Monk, Eric Dolphy and Duke Ellington.
