Your question is essentially about making sense of the Parent Scale choice. This is a VTG topic. CDR is a description of behavior in HTG or SVTG.
Your solution, treating the Ab7 chord as belonging to the II PMG is certainly the most ingoing and a natural starting place. The LCC provides (as does any other 'jazz theory') many other chord/scale options. His use of Bb as the Parent Scale is a possibility, albeit remote.

This voice collection sounds more close to me like a Bb9 chord than a Ab9b5....

Fernando you say your hear the voicing top down D Bb f d c Ab sounds more Bb9 chord than a Ab9b5, even with a Ab in the bass ?! that's interesting.

otherwise, @guitarjazz and everyone, I was wondering if there is not an equivalence between Gb lydian augmented Bb lydian augmented and D lydian augmented as they share the same augmented triad and that is the augmented triad that sounds most characteristic with lydian augmented, as if one lydian augmented would sound a 'shortcut' to the others lydian augmented a maj third away ?

Yes, it´s the third invertion of Bb7/9 chord with Ab in the root.....Bb9/Ab, and for me it´s a II degree of Ab Lydian Scale in his most ingoing association......
