Giovanni Mirabassi is a Paris-based Italian jazz pianist, born in Perugia, Italy. After a few important experiences in Italy (he played with Chet Baker in 1987 and with Steve Grossman in 1988), he settled in Paris in 1992.
In 1996 he recorded his first album with Pierre-Stéphane Michel (upright bass) and Flavio Boltro (trumpet), winning the grand prix and the best soloist prize at the Concours International de Jazz d'Avignon.

In 2001 Mirabassi released his first solo album, Avanti!, a collection of songs about revolutions which he had been thinking of for years. This record was an important milestone in his career (Django d’Or of the best young talent and a Victoires du Jazz in 2002). Mirabassi then began touring regularly, as part of a trio or alone, and became very popular, especially in Japan.

In his 2005 album Prima O Poi he recorded a theme song from the famous Hayao Miyakaki movie Howl's Moving Castle, composed by the equally famous Joe Hisaishi. Being a huge anime fan himself, Giovanni was encouraged to record his Animessi project, his interpretation of various music themes from Japanese Animation, including popular titles such as: Le Château dans le ciel, Le Château de Cagliostro, Le Château ambulant, Le Vent se lève, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, My Neighbors the Yamadas, Origin: Spirits of the Past.
