About

‘Bird Lives’ was the prophetic graffito seen on a NYC wall soon after Charlie Parker’s death and it continues to testify to the remarkable time-capsule from the future that was bebop. In tonight’s concert Belovèd present compositions by both Parker and Bates drawn 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.
