http://www.discogs.com/artist/Marcello+Melis He was great bassist active in the from the 60s-90s, he was on a great Steve Lacy LP called Moon. He made three strange but awesome LPs for Black Saint. The Village on the Left might be the best, with Roswell Rudd, Enrico Rava & Don Moye + a Sardinian vocal quartet. Free to Dance is a huge all - star double band + Don Pullen: Bass Fred Hopkins Bass, Composed By, Arranged By Marcello Melis Percussion Nana Vasconcelos Percussion [Sun] Dougoufana Famoudou Môyè (Don Moye)* Piano Don Pullen Trombone Gary Valente, George Lewis Trumpet Enrico Rava, Lester Bowie Vocals Jeanne Lee, Sheila Jordan His music is well worth checking out, not super outside, but his choices are very interesting. If anyone saw the guy live or knew him that would be interesting to hear about.
