Pianist Giovanni Guidi is one of the most outstanding musicians to have emerged from the ranks of Italian jazz in the last decade and has already made his presence felt on Enrico Ravaâ€™s Tribe and On The Dancefloor albums. Rava praises both Guidiâ€™s â€œlimitless curiosityâ€ as an improviser and his â€œrelentless refinementâ€ of touch and musical taste, and the pianist continually proves that those qualities are not opposites. Guidi has since recorded two albums with his own trio for ECM, a glowing collection of self-penned tunes, simultaneously inner-directed and creatively daring, with many adroit exchanges between the musicians and plenty of space given also to bassist Thomas Morgan, whose role in the Guidi Trio is perhaps analogous to Scott LaFaroâ€™s in the Bill Evans Trio. Portuguese drummer JoÃ£o Lobo is another highly original musician, poetically shading the music with a delicate tracery of cymbals.
