Paolo Fresu

tr, fh, *1961 IT, Berchidda
Musician / Composer / Arranger / Producer of Jazz

Italian jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player, arranger and composer. He was born in 1961 in Berchidda, Sardinia. Notable were his collaborations with Ralph Towner, Uri Caine, Carla Bley and many others. Fresu also composes for movies, theater plays and other popular media. His style is based on the Miles Davis hardbop sound of the 50's, but not being a mere imitation he draws inspiration from Mediterranean musical heritage and classical music.
