Roberto Ottaviano

Roberto Ottaviano is an Italian saxophonist.

He started extremely young as a self-taught percussion and flute player, but at the age of five he began to take clarinet classes at the Conservatory of Bari, Italy. Influenced by Lester Young and John Coltrane, he later chose the saxophone. After studying classical saxophone in Perugia with Federico Mondelci, between the end of the 1970s and the early 1980s he attended several workshops taught by Evan Parker and Jimmy Giuffre, undertook harmony and classical composition studies with Walter Boncompagni and attended courses held by Giacomo Manzoni and Luigi Nono. Thanks to a fortuitous encounter with Steve Lacy, he focused on the soprano saxophone. During a stay in the United States, he studied jazz composition and arrangements under Ran Blake, Bill Russo and George Russell.
