‘Bird Lives’ was the prophetic graffiti seen on a NY wall soon after Charlie Parker’s death and it continues to testify to the remarkable time-capsule from the future that was bebop.

At Jazzahead Belovèd present the compositions of Parker and Bates from their new album Confirmation. Django’s originals stand in their own right but also serve to recontextualise Parker’s lines, using the same rhythmic and harmonic signature that is brought to bear in his astonishing re-workings of “Donna Lee”, “Confirmation”, et al.

“Bates now has one of jazz’s great piano trios on his hands. His restless questing after new experiences probably won’t keep it there for long”. ***** The Guardian.
