Stefano Bedetti is a self-taught musician who began to play tenor saxophone at the age of 14.
He discovered jazz listening to the records of Charlie Parker, Michael Brecker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Cannonball Adderley, Hank Mobley, Sonny Stitt and all the other great cats of that era.
At the age of 19 Giulio Capiozzo (famous italian drummer, cofounder of well-known group Area) was the first to notice his talent and invite Stefano in his group.
Thanks to his generous and spontaneous way to play, to his huge sound, great technic and melodic/harmonic articulations Stefano is quickly noticed by some of the big names of the jazz music.
Over the course of his career Stefano has performed with many jazz stars including: Billy Hart, Ed Howard, Victor Lewis, George Cables, Jimmy Howens, Dave Stryker, John Riley, Tony Scott, Adam Nussbaum, John Patitucci, Antonio Sanchez and many others.
