Biographie:  Giancarlo Locatelli born November 12, 1961. He first studied music with his father, an accordion player. Later he studied pianoforte and, in 1985, graduated from the ´Dall’Abaco´ conservatory of Verona, where he studied clarinet. He has taken part in many workshops on jazz, arranging and orchestral practice with Gianluigi Trovesi, Steve Lacy, Mal Waldron, Giancarlo Gazzani and Bruno Tommaso. He has worked with many musicians, including Steve Lacy, Wolfgang Fuchs, Fernando Grillo, Thomas Lehn, Erhard Hirt, Peter Kowald, Barre Phillips, Carlo Actis Dato, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Enrico Fazio, Alberto Mandarini, Jimmy Owens, Nicolas Simion, Fabrizio Spera, Luca Venitucci, Biggi Vinkeloe, Peter Friis Nielsen, Peeter Uskyla, Steve Piccolo, Eliott Sharp, Zeena Parkins and Gak Sato. He has performed at the festivals of Ragusa (1993), Clusone (1994 and 1999), Jazz in’it (1994, Vignola), Il giardino della musica (1995, Milan), Leonkart (1996, Milan), Festivaletteratura (1997, Mantova), Musica e linguaggi (1997, Mestre), Il sacro attraverso l’ordinario (1997, Turin), Progetto poesia totale (1997, Locarno), Noci (1997), Incontri poesia (1998, Locarno), Cicli (1999, Montevarchi), Controindicazioni (Roma 1999). He often works with poets and performance artists like Franco Beltrametti, Antonello Cassinotti, Gruppo Tealtro (with whom he has toured in Poland, France and Sweden), Biagio Cepollaro, Rita Degli Esposti, John Gian, Stefan Hiner, Tom Raworth and Dario Villa. With Massimo Falascone and Filippo Monico he founded the group Takla Makan, conducting systematic research on free improvisation from 1993 to 1996. In the years to follow, this experience has led to the projects: the Takla Wind Quartet (1996), composed of Fabio Martini, M. Falascone, G. Locatelli and Alessandro Bosetti (who since 1999 has been replaced by the Dutch clarinet and saxophone player Ab Baars), the Takla Jazz Quartet, originally known as Bap ti zum (1996 Falascone, Locatelli, Monico and Tito Mangialajo), the association ´Takla Improvising Group´ (1997) and the independent label ´Takla Records´ (1998). Since 1996 he has also working in a duo with pianist Alberto Braida.
