Matt Bianco does it again with Gran Via ! Released in 1995 after the limited release of their U.S.A. project titled Another Place, Another Time (released on the JVC label). Another Place, Another Time is now out of print. However, anyone who owned that release will see a continuation of both theme and sound in Gran Via.Ironically, the ballad track Love Life which appears on Gran Via was also previously released on Another Time, Another Place… Matt Bianco no longer sounds like their earlier efforts of synthesized Samba with singer Basia. This time it's a more mature and natural sounding style of adult, contemporary, jazz-pop feel garnished with a lot of Latin/salsa influences.Mark Reilly's vocals are light but as always still deliver and suit this particualr style of music perfectly.
Great album from Matt Bianco! The songs, "No Other Woman" and "Love Life" are simply classy!
The Things You Love is de titel van de nieuwe EP van New Cool Collective samen met Mark Reilly, de oprichter en zanger van Matt Bianco. Een plaat waarop beiden hun klassieke mix van soul, jazz en pop samenbrengen: het bekende New Cool Collective geluid, aangevuld met de retro pop-jazz van Matt Bianco.
new album for 2010, this is an album of newly recorded tracks from the past, all our hits and songs we enjoy playing live. There is a completely new version of ‘more than I can bear’ and a great version of ‘ half a minute’ featuring Hazel Sim on vocals and re-mixed by Joey Negro which is catching lots of attention.
Matt Bianco emerged in the British music scene in the 80s with a fresh pop sound tinged with soul, jazz and latin rhythms, while music at that time was more and more based on machine and synths.
“Hideaway”, their new work, will be released on March 8th, 2013 via earMUSIC. “Hideaway”: a place to escape the pressures of every-day life. A place of the soul, to step aside, relax and recharge. The album’s title sets the intentions of Matt Bianco’s music in 2013 and the new songs fit perfectly to the theme.
