Among his most important collaborations in jazz, pop, funk, soul, Latin music are Mina, Gerry Mulligan, Astor Piazzolla (the bassline in the famous composition "Astor Piazzolla - Libertango" belongs to him), Wilson Pickett, Quincy Jones, Maynard Ferguson, Stéphane Grappelli, Severino Gazzelloni, Shirley Bassey, Franco Cerri, Shirley Bunnie Foy, Aldemaro Romero and Tullio De Piscopo.
