A mere two weeks before Charlie Parker's 103rd birthday, Yvonne Moriel, a saxophonist who was fascinated by Bird's "Omnibook" at the very beginning of her love affair with jazz, is performing at the Saalfelden Jazz Festival. "But only now do I have the feeling that I can really perceive the genius of his music and his playing," said the 31-year-old on air during an Ö1 jazz night. In her own ensemble, Yvonne Moriel lives out her curiosity for improvisation in combination with electronic developments, J Dilla-esque beats and relaxed echo dubs. Most likely in the revolutionary spirit of Charlie Parker, because, as Moriel also knows: "He would certainly not have stopped at bebop".
