Biography

Iconic figures of the 20th century, The Beatles embraced the changing world. Their music still resounds in people’s minds, whatever their generation, country, language. It’s part of our heritage.

Nine of their songs have been newly arranged by David Chalmin, Nicola Tescari and Giovanni Sollima, intertwined with new compositions on the edge of improvisation. They create a multicoloured sound atune to our times, an encounter of diverse traditions and energies.This innovative enterprise has been undertaken by Katia Labèque, unconventional pianist from a classical background to whom Miles Davies dedicated two songs, David Chalmin, alternative rocker, and Nicola Tescari, contemporary composer.
B for Bang was born out of their desire to create a dynamic of energy, movement, and curiosity - with the instinct to retain the differences of their backgrounds.

Joining them are, Massimo Pupillo (Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth/Mike Patton), and Marque Gilmore (Nitin Sawney/Talvin Singh). They also invited some of their friends to collaborate, improvise and join in the making of the album – Giovanni Sollima, Viktoria Mullova, Katell Keineg, Meg, Nadeah, Patti Smith, Daniel Day Lewis.
