Yesterday 19 April 2018 saxophonist, flutist, and educator Peter Guidi (1949-2018) died in Amsterdam (NL).

He was a Scottish/Dutch (with Italian parents) saxophone and flute player who was also very active as Jazz teacher and Big Band conductor. An original and very good musician, especially on flute.

This is what Frank Wess had to say about Peter Guidi:
'I believe there are new roads to explore, I don't believe everything has been said on the jazz flute. For example I've heard some experimental work being done by Peter Guidi that I like very much, I find it very interesting.'
Here is an example of his flute playing:

Some of his pupils and friends gave him a last salute concert last Friday 13 April 2018, performed life on the street in front of his house in Amsterdam. See this link for a video and some pictures. On the third picture under the video you can see him (already very ill) enjoying the concert from his window:

He will be missed.

Indeed, a great player an will be sadly missed on the Dutch Jazz scene.

When I played some bass saxophone I often inspired myself to his recordings.



Dutch ( with his interesting accent)
