Italian jazz trumpet and flugelhorn player, arranger and composer. He was born in 1961 in Berchidda, Sardinia.

Notable were his collaborations with [a=Ralph Towner], [a=Uri Caine], [a=Carla Bley] and many others.

Fresu also composes for movies, theater plays and other popular media.

His style is based on the [a=Miles Davis] hardbop sound of the 50's, but not being a mere imitation he draws inspiration from Mediterranean musical heritage and classical music.
