The Jubilee Big Band was founded for a special reason: to celebrate no less than three anniversaries. The Jazz Focus Band celebrates its 20th year, while the Jazzmania Big Band has been in existence for 25. It has also been a stunning thirty years since Peter Guidi started teaching at Muziekschool Amsterdam, which both bands are a part of. Scottish-born from Italian parents, Guidi became the head of Muziekschool Amsterdam’s jazz department after moving to the Netherlands and runs several ensembles at the school with (some very) young jazz talents. Besides a conductor and teacher Guidi is also a self-taught flutist and saxophonist.
