2004 I spent a week in Paris. Nothing was planned. Just to spend a few days there, see some famous buildings and soak up the atmosphere. And the red wine, of course. One night me and my then-girlfriend stumbled upon a jazzclub called Sunset/Sunside. What we found inside was a guy called Giovanni Mirabassi playing with his trio. Young man with a beard, sad eyes and the weight of the world on his shoulders playing this beautiful introspective music. I don’t think he smiled once at the gig. Anyway, I was mesmerized by this pianist and I think we came the next night as well to see him play again. Here’s a video of him playing at the Sunset/Sunside in Paris around 2004, could be a little later.
