Matt Bianco is an English group formed in 1983. He included Kito Poncioni on bass, Danny White on keyboards and Mark Reilly on vocals. Singer Basia Trzetrzelewska does not arrive until a little later. It's the album “Whose side are you are” which reveals them to the eyes of the whole world with the flagship singles “Get out of your lazy bed” and “More than i can bear”, album with a very particular sound with very marked influences mixing jazz and Latin rhythms. Unique album because the group separates immediately after the realization of the latter to start solo careers. Solo careers which will all abort except for Basia Trzetrzelewska and Danny White who have the happy idea of joining forces and creating the group "Basia" which will experience real success in the United States. Only Mark Reilly continues the Matt Bianco adventure with Mark Fisher (formerly of "Wham") whose second album, without title, includes the single "Yeh Yeh" which will be their last notorious hit.

1984 ... a career start on the wheel with this title at the frenzied tempo and which immediately gives the trend : with this group, it will pulsate. HU-GE !
1984 ... a truly atypical style, light and airy at will. A UFO group that has everything to please and that will really stand out from the rest of the crowd
1984 ... we continue in the same vein with an even more marked jazzy touch. An exceptional year 1984 for the group with no less than 4 top hits on the clock. Quite a feat for a group out of nowhere !
1984 ... a 4th heavyweight title to end the year in style. A unique and original musical orientation, and above all risky, but which pays in any case !
1985 ... which will surely remain one of their most emblematic titles. A sumptuous title which makes them enter definitively in the musical legend of the 80s. And yes, already. MA-GNI-FI-CENT !
1985 ... the year 1984 was exceptional, the year 1985 will more or less approach it. They sign here a track which spins at the speed of light and which will especially bring them one of the biggest successes of all their discography
1986 ... even if the level of success is no longer quite the same, the group continues the great adventure. And they are right to believe it !
1986 ... always as rhythmic, always as light and airy, their style never ages. But, that, when the talent is there, everything is fine !
1988 ... and they were right to believe it ! The proof with this title which brings them quite simply the biggest success of all their discography. Like nothing is ever finished !
1988 ... even if the singers succeed one after the other, the hard core of the group is still there. On the other hand, the sound evolves, it is obvious on this title. For good or for bad...?
1989 ... the last notorious hit. It had to happen one day. Especially since the group has started a sound turn which has trivialized them and inevitably, the sanction in the Charts is immediate ...
1990 ... the group will even try the Hi-NRG style, which could have imagined it. All that had made their charm in the mid-80s has unfortunately gone ...
1992 ... they will go through all styles. The proof with this luxury cover of the title of the Doobie Brothers dating from 1979 that they reinterpret in Latin version. You had to try this one !
1997 ... the opposite of what they offered when they first started, the group coasted. An adventure can be too long in the final but which will at least have had the merit of producing several pieces of very very large caliber
