|"Giovanni Mirabassi resolutely goes on and signs a second album with his high quality "power trio" ! DISCOGRAPH
"Giovanni is back again in trio. His programme this time is delicately put together, ranging from traditional tunes (Dear old Stockolm), to standards (Alone Together, Impressions, Just one of those things), committed songs once again (Here's to you, Le chant des Partisans) in the same spirit as Avanti!, new versions of Piazzola (Vuelvo al Sur) or of a film soundtrack (Convite para la Vida) and finally several personal compositions or dedications (to Pieranunzi)...It is a neat alternation between different styles and atmospheres, a smooth balance between profusion and restraint, the triggering of nostalgia and effects of surprise (the Latin treatment of Impressions). Under this avalanche of references, we will recognize the pianist's main inspiration... the elegance of his phrasing, his mastery and generosity ... excellent rhythm section and a magnificent sound..."
JAZZ MAGAZINE April 2009 - Vincent Cotro

"A faultless career path : the Italian-style master delights us with each of his new albums. In trio with Leon Parker and Gianluca Renzi on bass, Mirabassi reinterprets some themes dear to Miles Davis (Dear Old Stockolm) or John Coltrane (Impressions), and gives us an enchanting performance of Just One of those things by Cole Porter. In this new album, there are also some of his own compositions, one of which is brilliant, and dedicated to his rival Enrico Pieranunzi. Giovanni Mirabassi's piano playing is one of the most fascinating; it is radiant and attains perfection in terms of subtlety."
LE FIGARO MAGAZINE - Nicolas Ungemuth
"Giovanni Mirabassi pursues his career. With Gianluca Renzi and Leon Parker, he has found two exceptional partners... Mirabassi caresses notes and illuminates melodies... Try to find other pianists like him, there are few."
JAZZMAN - Renaud Czarnes
"...a very succesful project and the confirmation of a trio which handles lyricism and swing in a blissful combination..."
JAZZMAN - Lionel Eskenazi
"(and)... the new version of the Chant des Partisans suggests the initial presence of fairy fingers swinging above the Vercors Maquis. The rest of the selection of pieces ensures the trio's long- lasting success, at the top of its category.
LES INROCKUPTIBLES - Christian Larrède
"Giovanni Mirabassi, the super Italian pianist, is getting better and better all the time. After his very successful Terra Furiosa, his new release features the same trio... The album is called "Out of Track" and is just fabulous, with an extraordinary performance of "Le Chant des Partisans".
TELERAMA - Michel Contat
"This new opus is articulated around the inimitable playing of the pianist; the trio goes even further experimenting the musical alchemy they have been building since their meeting by chance in summer 2007. The track Just one of thos things is a perfect foretaste before discovering "Out of Track".
FRANCE INTER - Julien Delli Fiori
"... Hurry on to buy this one, (Out of Track), it's a gem ! The young pianist recorded this album after a tour with bassplayer Gianluca Renzi (the fabulous kingpin of the rhythm section of the Rosarion Giulani quintet) and the phenomenal "minimalist" drummer Leon Parker. Their complicity is almost miraculous. There are no trendy effects, no compound tempos, no complicated harmonies with pseudo-oriental scales, no sentimental romanticism, vulgar brutality by way of energy, or vain technical feats... What we find in this album is everything we loved in Bill or Mc Coy ! It's fresh, luminous, limpid and intoxicating... Music in its purest state... to be savoured constantly !"
NOUVELLE VAGUE - Daniel Chauvet
"...one will appreciate the trio's cohesion, the exceptional partners, the leader's piano touching, phrasing and lyricism, essential qualities for a jazz pianist... a very good one." SITARTMAG
