Quotes & Highlights
- Watch Gato Barbieri team up with Santana for their hit "Europa."
Beginning professionally as a teenager playing alto sax in several different Buenos Aires clubs, Barbieri’s five decade career has covered virtually the entire jazz landscape, from free jazz (with trumpeter Don Cherry in the mid-60s) and avante garde to film scoring and his ultimate embrace of Latin music throughout the 70s and 80s. He began playing tenor with his own band in the late 50s and moved to Rome with his Italian born first wife Michelle in 1962, where he began collaborating with Cherry.
The two recorded two albums for Blue Note, Complete Communion and Symphony For Improvisors, which are considered classics of free group improvisations. Barbieri launched his career as a leader with the Latin flavored The Third World in 1969, and later parlayed his Last Tango success into a career as a film composer, scoring a dozen international films over the years in Europe, South America and the United States.
