Effortlessly floating between groove, exotica and night club rhythms Guido’s new album is already enjoying significant airplay and gathering raving international reviews.

Guido Spannocchi has become a fixture on the London scene since his arrival in 2011, he has published several albums which have gained him international reputation and reviews in renowned magazines such as “Straight No Chaser” where Paul Bradshaw says “a look on his homepage is enough to see he is putting in the work and creating a buzz” as well as airplay on BBC Radio 3 JazzNow where Emma Smith mentioned him as “carving his own niche on the forefront of the current wave of new UK Jazz”. His newest album “Perihelion” features a six piece band from the UK and EU and shines through gentle melodies, interwoven arrangements and exquisite interplay. See review
