Artist Biographies:

"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. Other notable bands he leads are his Jümp The Shark sextet with Gerhard Gschloessl on tuba and trombone, Domenico Caliri on guitars, Pasquale Mirra on vibes, Danilo Gallo on bass and Federico Scettri on drums, and "Rollerball", a rock-oriented jazz quintet with Beppe Scardino on bari sax, Enrico Terragnoli on guitar, Danilo Gallo on bass and Massimiliano Sorrentini on drums, not mentioning the many other bands he's involved in, mainly with his Gallo Rojo fellows and with other major italian musicians. In 2010 he was called to be part of a new Uri Caine project, "Pulse". His "Original Pigneto Stompers" outfit features giant of electric bass Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Simone Massaron on guitars and Federico Scettri and Massimiliano Sorrentini on double drums. One of his most recents projects, "Lacus Amoenus", involves the great trumpet player Peter Evans.

His interest in finding new sounds and new improvisational languages brought him to design a special microphone system allowing to control and play the feedback that is generated inside the saxophone tube. This "augmented" alto saxophone is featured in his solo project "SPELUNKER".

He performed an recorded with italian artists such as Danilo Gallo, Zeno de Rossi, Beppe Scardino, Enrico Terragnoli, Stefano Senni, Francesco Bigoni, Massimiliano Sorrentini, Achille Succi,Tiziana Ghiglioni, Tiziano Tononi, Daniele Cavallanti, Francesco Cusa, Domenico Caliri, Giovanni Maier, U.T. Gandhi, Simone Massaron, Silvia Bolognesi, John De Leo and with musicians like Anthony Braxton, Uri Caine, Peter Evans, Steve Lehman, John Tchicai, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Lukas Ligeti, Gino Robair, Jessica Lurie, Andrew Drury, Neil Leonard, Ernest Dawkins, Vincent Davis, Craig J. Green, Tristan Honsinger, Gerhard Gschloessl, Christian Lillinger, Tobias Delius, Mark Solborg, Marc Lohr, Lisa Mezzacappa, Jason Levis and many others.

In 2011 Piero founded his own netlabel, R'Ufo Records.

He recorded for labels such as El Gallo Rojo Records, Auand Records, Aut Records, Clean Feed Records, Long Song Records, Splasch Records, Improvvisatore Involontario, NuBop Records, Materiali Sonori, Psychonavigation Records, Caligola Records."

"Peter Evans is a trumpet player, and improvisor/composer based in New York City since 2003. Evans is part of a broad, hybridized scene of musical experimentation and his work cuts across a wide range of modern musical practices and traditions. Peter is committed to the simultaneously self-determining and collaborative nature of musical improvisation as a compositional tool, and works with an ever-expanding group of musicians and composers in the creation of new music. His primary groups as a leader are the Peter Evans Quintet and the Zebulon trio. In addition, Evans has been performing and recording solo trumpet music since 2002 and is widely recognized as a leading voice in the field, having released several recordings over the past decade. He is a member of the cooperative groups Pulverize the Sound (with Mike Pride and Tim Dahl) and Rocket Science (with Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and Sam Pluta) and is constantly experimenting and forming new configurations with like minded players. As a composer, he has been commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Yarn/Wire, the Donaueschingen Musiktage Festival, the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Program, and the Doris Duke Foundation for the 2015 Newport Jazz Festival. Evans has presented and/or performed his works at major festivals worldwide and tours his own groups extensively. He has worked with some of the leading figures in new music: John Zorn, Kassa Overall, Jim Black, Weasel Walter, Levy Lorenzo, Nate Wooley, Steve Schick, Mary Halvorson, Joe McPhee, George Lewis, and performs with both ICE and the Wet Ink Ensemble. He has been releasing recordings on his own label, More is More, since 2011."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A sweaty summer session or radical free music! Recorded in July 2012 close to a nice small lake in the North of Italy, at the beautiful Sauna Studio (yes, even the studio name is as hot as the music!). Featuring Peter Evans as special guest, and an unusual tuba instead or a more expected double bass, Piero Bittolo Bon's Lacus Amoenus delivers a brilliant, adventurous ensemble sound, full of raw, daring improvised music. Certainly not your usual easy listening jazz music, "The Sauna Session" is in any case a treasure to slowly discover and appreciate listen after listen!"-Long Song Records
