If you are intrigued by jazz because of its capacity to surprise, amaze, astound, even flabbergast and leave you without words... then British pianist Django Bates is the musician for you!
This week Mondo Jazz has reached out to Django Bates for an interview, in advance of his North American tour. This episode features almost two hours of music by Django Bates, from the Loose Tubes days to his current Belovèd Trio featuring Swedish bassist Petter Eldh and Danish drummer Peter Bruun, the project featured on Bates' recent album The Study of Touch.
The episode also previews the upcoming concert by Camille Bertault and Chico Pinheiro, which will launch the Rizzoli Music Aperitivo, a music series curated by Mondo Jazz at the historic Rizzoli Bookstore in New York, which will try to spotlight, and possibly spark, cross-pollination between music and literature or poetry.
