Original booklet included with the download

Sax player and composer GIANNI GEBBIA (1961) is considered among the best
solo saxophone performers of the second generation of solo improvisors (along with Ned Rothenberg, Kang Dae Hwan, Jon Gibson) his music has been featured in many movies, documentaries, dance theatre pieces.
Gebbia's music ,since his beginnings in the 80's,has been deeply rooted in the tradition coming from the italian islands of Sicily and Sardinia where he has been in touch since young age with several launeddas masters and other traditional music and soon after, he has discovered free jazz and improvised music
Gianni Gebbia has collaborated with hundreds of great artists of every discipline among which: Peter Kowald, Fred Frith, Pina Bausch, Masaki Iwana, Raul Ruiz, Vanessa Redgrave, and toured mostly as soloist all around the world.
Recently, many young solo saxophone specialists, declared and showed to be influenced by his peculiar style using circular breathing in the so called " polyphonic illusions " approach as in the case of Ryoko Ono, Colin Stetson, John Berndt and many others.
His biography is featured in the Encyclopedia of Jazz by Brian Morton (Penguin Books ).

"I think it's important to situate Gianni solo playing in the space coming from the Braxton/Parker at Pisa in the early eighties mould, but just as importantly, from the Sardinian launeddas tradition.
A lot of what he plays comes much more directly from the latter (including the "8 bar modal folk-tune repeated over and over, with unbelievable superimposed variation" that you allude to) Launeddas is always played with circular breathing (they learn by trying to evenly blow bubbles in a glass of water through a straw while breathing through the nose) and they've been doing it a hell of a lot longer than Evan (or Roland Kirk!)."

Fred Frith 1999
