Italian jazz musician, he played the tenor saxophone. He began his professional music career on the clarinet, playing in post-war Germany and Belgium in the 1940s. In 1954, he partnered with Oscar Valdambrini, a composer/arranger and trumpeter. The pair and their band became the most popular jazz combo in Italy in the 1950s, often accompanying greats like Billie Holiday and Chet Baker and later Sarah Vaughan. His many albums, recorded over six decades, include the 2011 release of "Swiss Radio Days" vol. 24.
