Description

Beloved Bird, by the multi-award winning British jazz musician Django Bates is a celebration of the music of Charlie Parker. On his first recording with a classic trio line-up, Bates delivers his own interpretations of music associated with Parker and pays tribute to Bird with one of his own compositions.

He says of Belovèd Bird, "I believe there is no point in recording unless one has something special to say. Now's the time to say something special: Bird Lives!"

Django Bates, who is equally at home on keyboards and tenor horn and is also an acclaimed composer, formed his first small group, Human Chain, in 1979 and it has become his signature vehicle over the years. During the '80s he was primarily associated with the big-band collective Loose Tubes, for which he was one of the principal writers. He has performed in a duo with Joanna McGregor, garnered commissions for his occasional big band Delightful Precipice, worked as a sideman with Tim Berne and in 1997 was awarded the prestigious Danish JAZZPAR prize. In 2005 he was appointed Professor of Rhythmic Music at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen.

Personnel: Django Bates (piano), Peter Bruun (drums), Petter Eldh (double bass)
