“Bianchini has a deft touch and a joyful delivery that can be downright alluring...The man can certainly swing on a melody with creative arrangements and a sense of time that is quite impressive...This is a successful debut by a fine pianist and a sympathetic rhythm section who know their history and mine the Songbook’s possibility with vim, vigor and a sense of modernism.” - Huffington Post
“If you have a fondness for standards (and who doesn’t?) latch onto GIANNI BIANCHINI’s, TYPE 1. This is as fresh an approach to 12 mostly well-worn standards as I’ve heard in some time. Bianchini is a special talent.” - Cadence Jazz Magazine
“The piano man's piano trio debut tackles a host of chestnuts but he makes the all modern rather than easy listening pretty music...The young gun takes you and the songs to new places, all of them a treat. Well done.” - Midwest Records
