Last summer, during a conversation in the back stage of some jazz festivals, pianist Giovanni Guidi had the idea of setting up a new band. David Virelles quickly agreed, accepting the new challenge of a very unique and unusual instrumentation for a jazz quartet : piano and keyboards, played by Guidi and Virelles who switch instruments randomly.
Two musicians united by a remarkably original vision of music with different results but a very similar evolution through time
Guidi, 32 years old, has been pianist of European jazz icon Enrico Rava, since he was 19 years old .In the past years he has recorded three albums as leader for ECM with musicians as Louis Sclavis, Gianluca Petrella, Thomas Morgan, Gerald Cleaver and Joao Lobo.

Virelles is one of the most outstanding musicians from the international scene. He has recorded several albums as a leader signed by ECM. He also makes sideman appearences with Ravi Coltrane, Chris Potter, Tomasz Stanko ed Henry Threadgill.

Dezron Douglas and Gerald Cleaver make up a dynamic and forceful rythm section, as recently seen in the Rava-Stanko quintet.

The focus of the group is an original music that uses influences from their back-ground to synthesize a contemporary language that crosses the musical boundaries.
