"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."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A trumpet (by Flavio Zanuttini himself, the mastermind behind Born Baby Born), an alto sax (Piero Bittolo Bon) and a drumset (Marco D'Orlando). Nothing more: no bass to deepen the rhythm and no harmonic instrument, be it a piano or a guitar. Just "meat and potatoes", as Eugene Chadbourne states on his liner notes, dismissing in this meal the possible contributions of a fried egg, some buttered peas or a salad. And yet, you can hear a bass doing rhythmic and harmonic work, and this because the trumpet, the sax and the drums incorporate the bass parts, in a phantom-like way. The drummer do it naturally with the tom-toms and the bass drum, but you wouldn't expect that from the horns. Or do you, considering that they're played by superlative instrumentalists?

A few years back, Zanuttini dared to play the music of Don Cherry, and he managed to get very close to the original trumpeter, while keeping his own musical personality. The Italian musician has a long curriculum as an orchestra player, in that context knowing that he's an individual contributor of something bigger, but that's what explains his will to go beyond the conventional roles when he's a soloist in a small group.

Curiously enough, the "bassless, pianoless, tuttoless" (Zanuttini's words) trio Opacipapa puts themselves in the middle of two traditions, the free improvised one and the carefully organized of the great historical big bands. The music either swings, like if we're still living in the Fifties, or go to the post-free jazz stratosphere. Frequently, it swings when visiting the other side of the cosmos."-Clean Feed
