Perdas De Fogu - Marcello Melis / Mario Schiano - 1974 - TPL1 1082 -

Marcello Melis (Cagliari 1939, August 16 / Paris 1994, October 5) was an Italian bassist and composer who has done real research between the Sardinian folk music and Afro-American tradition.

His first collaborations were with Mario Schiano, and with him founded the historical Gruppo Romano Free Jazz, and continue with musicians like Steve Lacy, Mal Waldron, Gato Barbieri.

This record, which opens the VISTA label, is the first in his name.
Melis subsequently recorded with Enrico Rava and Roswell Rudd (The New Village On The Left - 1976), again with Rava and with Lester Bowie (Free To Dance - 1978), and with Don Pullen, Sandro Satta and Don Moye (Angedras - 1982).
