DJANGO BATES’ BELOVÈD(GBR/SWE/DEN)
SATURDAY 1 NOVEMBER AT 17:30
In the 1980s, self-educated composer and pianist Django Bates was leading the way for the renaissance of European jazz. Today, he is one of the most respected and fearless artists of the ivory keys.
Together with his trio, Belovèd, the piano virtuoso pays tribute to his childhood hero,Charlie Parker, in a ‘Djangoed’ style. The latest album of the group, Confirmation (Lost Marble, 2012), includes Bates’ own compositions in addition to those of Parker.
With a constantly shifting rhythmic pulse and arresting musicality, Django Bates’ Belovèd offers an exquisite, unforgettable jazz experience.
