Django Bates - Beloved Bird


For his 40th birthday, in 2000, Django Bates made an American songbook album. It was an unusual choice for the pianist and composer, but he didn't flinch from twisting the familiar patterns and dynamics of those evergreens out of shape. For his 50th, he's applied the same treatment to the 1940s bebop themes composed by or linked with his childhood hero, Charlie Parker.

not from this album but excellent
