GIOVANNI GUIDI

The 2013 and 2014 have been important years for Italian pianist Giovanni Guidi.
His fifth album as a leader, “CITY OF BROKEN DREAMS” was released in March 2013 by ECM. Guidi is accompanied by Thomas Morgan, one of New York's finest musicians as well as frequent collaborator drummer Joao Lobo from Portugal.
The trio performed two successful concert tours in Europe following the release.
In the spring, of the same year, he has recorded one concert as a sideman with Enrico Rava with the Teatro Regio Symphonic Orchestra of Torino and the latest incarnation of Rava’s quintet, in which the original voice of Guidi is an important defining characteristic. The album has been released on October 2013.
He has continued to work as a sideman in various formations including Enrico Rava "Tribe" and Enrico Rava “PMJ Lab”, trombonist Gianluca Petrella's “Cosmic Band” as well as the new Petrella project “Il Bidone”, dedicated to Nino Rota's music, which has been released on June 2013 by Spacebone label. With the explosive Guidi/Petrella duo has recorded an album realeased on September 2013 by Italian Jazz magazine MUSICA JAZZ .On next Fall, with this duo, named “Soupstar” he will record a new album for ECM .
His groups as a leader include a new quintet with young sax revelation Mattia Cigalini, a trio with trumpet player Luca Aquino and percussionist Michele Rabbia and a ten piece band named “The Unknown Rebel Band”.

His new ECM album recorded in trio with Thomas Morgan and Joao Lobo will be out on February 2015.

Guidi was named best Italian pianist in 2011 by the magazine Insound, and the year-end poll of Italian magazine Musica Jazz placed him in 2nd as best pianist, only one point behind the winner. It's becoming clear that at just 29 years of age, Guidi is emerging as one of the most important voices of the new generation in Italy and abroad.
