Piero Bittolo Bon is one of the busiest and most in demand italian musicians in the italian jazz and avant-garde scene. He mainly plays alto saxophone but is also at ease on baritone saxophone, flutes and clarinets. Piero has also had a long-standing affair going on with the electric bass, which he played at the beginning of his musical journey in funk, reggae, and rock bands, before committing himself to wind instruments and improvised music. Passionate and vibrant, his music, densely composed or totally improvised, reverberates with echoes of the best of free jazz, fire music, torrid improvisations and chamberesque compositions, sharp attacks and continuous inventions bar after bar.
Member of the fresh and much regarded italian collective/record label El Gallo Rojo Records, he’s currently leading his own quintet, Bread & Fox with Filippo Vignato on trombone, Alfonso Santimone on piano, Glauco Benedetti on tuba and Andrea Grillini on drums
