Pierre played with Rex Stewart, Coleman Hawkins, Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli, Don Byas, Thelonious Monk, Lester Young, Stan Getz, Bud Powell, Zoot Sims, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Chet Baker, among others.
Several bands mark the career of Pierre Michelot, started in the second half of the 1940s, HUM with Daniel Humair and René Urtreger, the trio "The Three Bosses" composed of Bud Powell supported by Kenny Clarke, or in accompaniment of Claude Nougaro with Maurice Vander, but also the European quintet of Miles Davis. To these formations we can add a great number of jazzmen like Django Reinhardt, Sidney Bechet, Chet Baker, Miles Davis (with whom he creates the soundtrack of the film of Louis Malle Ascenseur pour l'échafaud) or the bebopers Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk . In 1959, under the leadership of Jacques Loussier, he joined the Trio Play Bach with Christian Garros.
