Mystical yet fiery, passionately romantic yet supremely cool – you hear those first few notes from that instantly recognizable tenor, and know you’re in the unique musical world of Argentinean Gato Barbieri.
His enduring career has covered virtually the entire jazz landscape, from free jazz with trumpeter Don Cherry and avant-garde in the mid-’60s, to film scoring and his ultimate embrace of Latin music throughout the ’70s and ’80s.
About his music, Gato says, “It’s the melody. The melody is the most important thing, and something I very much love. When I play the saxophone, I play life, I play love, I play anger, I play confusion, I play when people scream; all of these aspects of the world I inhabit become naturally important to me.”
