This Is The Day is Giovanni Guidi’s second album as a leader for ECM, following on from the 2012 recording City of Broken Dreams. The young Italian pianist (b.1985, Foligno) was launched on the international stage in the groups of Enrico Rava. After being struck by the concentrated, impassioned qualities of the young pianist’s playing during the summer courses of Siena Jazz, Rava invited him into his band, and has since recorded with him on the ECM albums Tribe (with the Rava quintet) and On The Dance Floor, a live album with the Parco della Musica Jazz Lab in Rome.
This Is The Day again features Guidi’s international trio, with US bassist Thomas Morgan and Portuguese drummer João Lobo. Morgan recorded for the first time on ECM with guitarist John Abercrombie in 2008 on Wait Till You See Her and has since participated in albums of strikingly diverse character. Morgan’s style, melodic and essential, characterized by the fullness of touch, has been likened to that of Charlie Haden.
