Jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, flautist, composer and educator Gianluigi Trovesi was born in Nembro, Italy on January 10, 1944. He is one of the main representatives of Italian avant-garde jazz. His father was an amateur drummer, so he first began practicing percussion before turning to the clarinet. Trovesi studied at the Bergamo Institute of Music with Professor Vittorio Fellegara, focusing on harmony and counterpoint. Graduating in 1966, he played live and taught music in primary school before collaborating with the Franco Cerri Quintet (1974-76), and Giorgio Gaslini. In 1978, he won the RAI TV National Competition for Saxophone and Clarinet. That same year, Trovesi  formed his own trio and recorded the critically-successful album Baghét (1978). He collaborated with  many artists including Conrad Bauer, Peter Kowald, Andrea Centazzo, Mario Schiano and Paolo Fresu. Trovesi issued his second album, Cinque Piccole Storie, in 1981. His album Dances (1984) was voted as Disc Of The Year by the readers of the Italian magazine Musica Jazz, which also crowned him Musician Of The Year in 1988. Subsequent Trovesi albums captured the attention of critics and music fans including From G to G (1992), Les Hommes Armés (1997), Around Small Fairy Tales (1999), Fugace (2002), Profumo di Violetta (2008), Frère Jacques: Round About Offenbach (2011), and Mediterraneamente (2018). He recorded with the National Jazz Orchestra, Markus Stockhausen and the WDR Big Band. He regularly played with accordionist Gianni Coscia, pianist Umberto Petrin and percussionist Fulvio Maras, along with the Italian Instabile Orchestra (1992-2010). Outside of his own albums, he’s contributed to dozens of recordings since the beginning of his recording career.
