We Don

Ph. Jack Price

Questo disco è dedicato a quelli che a “casacolle” oramai ci entravano senza bussare, a quelli che venivano una sera a cena e se ne andavano dopo una settimana, a chi prima ancora di conoscerci ci salutava lasciandoci delle uova fuori dalla porta, a chi veniva a cucinare una cena per tre e poi si trovava una tavolata da quaranta persone, alle ragazze che per un lungo periodo non ci sono neanche entrate, agli amici che si incontrano solo durante le vacanze di Natale per giocare a carte, a tutti quelli che in una normale festa di compleanno improvvisamente si sono messi a mangiare una torta direttamente dal pavimento, al gallo che cantava tutte le mattine alle cinque, alle mattine in cui la nebbia copriva tutta la città e “casacolle” sembrava un’isola sull’oceano, agli amici che hanno suonato per notti intere e a quelli che li hanno ascoltati, alla porta che doveva essere chiusa ma che in realtà era aperta, ai colori che d’estate quando ti svegliavi coloravano tutte le stanze, a tutte le risate che ci si faceva seduti su un divano di fronte all’altro, al silenzio quando sul divano di fronte non c’era nessuno e a Luca che da quando è arrivato con il suo sorriso “casacolle” la illuminava tutta.


un album fatto con il cuore, la tecnica e la sicurezza.

(John Fordham, The Guardian)

  • Interview with Giovanni Guidi


"Combining a penchant for disarming intimacy and subtle nostalgia with a powerful sense for harmony and spades of conviction such that his performances always go  amply beyond mere skillful execution to express his uniquely personal vision, Giovanni Guidi is one of the most important to emerge in Italy in recent years.
Here, the piano is comfortably center-stage: solidly articulated harmonic passages form an unassailable structure supporting the melody of "Dess", while the obsessive reiterations underpinning both theme and improvisation give continuity to "Begatto Kitchen.". In "Furious Season", sparse and insistent arpeggios guide us through the piece as it develops, and throughout the record, subtle harmonic evolutions often engulf the melody." ( Aaj Italy Staff - All About Jazz)Once again, Giovanni Guidi's piano, together with Gianluca Petrella on trombone, Thomas Morgan on bass, Gerald Cleaver on drums, and Michael Blake on saxophone (formerly of the Lounge Lizards), are lighting a path for the future of Italian jazz. The piano introduction to Dess intiates a journey of reflection, a dimension in which past memories are transformed into materials with which to reflect and compose. Within this, there is a sense of loss, be it a reflection on the disappearance of youth, the acceleration of time or the growth of responsibilities, or rather the difficulty of seeking something fresh in the shadow of jazz's monolithic canon is not specified. But these are the themes the young pianist from Foligno is confronting.

The tracklist moves between meditative passages derailed by free jazz incursions a la Ornette Coleman (Furious Seasons), ensemble harmonies (We Don’t Live Here Anymore) and contrapuntal solo outings (The Dreamers), the record reminds us of the strongest efforts by the Bleys.
(Marco Braggion - Sentire Ascoltare)
