Sicilian 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. His music is 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, Samm Bennett, 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 ).
