The italian alto sax player Jòraku Gianni Gebbia started his own professional solo concert in 1990 following an invitation by Jost Gebers from FMP to play in Berlin in the legendary Total Music Meeting featuring Gebbia himself along with Steve Lacy, Lindsay Cooper, Dietmar Diesner and Rudiger Carl.
After this deep experience, and stimulated by Steve Lacy, Gebbia continued with unique strenght and concentration his personal research on solo saxophone playing in most of the specialized festivals in Europe, Usa and Japan. During the years Gebbia solos have been transforming and touching many different sides of this form from noise research to melodies through a deep mastering of the circular breathing techniques that Gebbia has learned through the late master of Sardinian launeddas Dionigi Burranca. Critics consider Gebbia′s solos as one of the most interesting of the second generation of improvisors along with similar artists as Ned Rothenberg, and John Butcher. Today many players in the solo scene declared to be strongly influenced by Gianni Gebbia′s solo recordings from the 1990s as in the case of the solo sax player Colin Stetson,
John Berndt, Ryoko Ono, Mick Barr and many others.
