Michael Bisio

Michael Bisio is an American jazz double bassist, composer, and bandleader. Since 2009 he has been the bassist for the Matthew Shipp Trio.

Bisio appears on over 100 CDs, leading on 12 CDs and co-leading on another dozen.

Bisio has composed over one hundred works which have been performed in clubs, concert venues, and festivals. They have been broadcast over assorted media. Most have been recorded; some were composed for films and theater, and one found was used in animation.

In his film Time & Object, animator Bernard Roddy uses "Something Different" from Zebulon as the score.
