Customer Reviews

I am looking forward to listening to more from Matt Bianco and Basia.
Patti Marconett
Basia's vocals are wonderful, and sometimes she adds her trademark multi-layered harmonies.

Having waited patiently for such a long time, this CD was well worth the wait.

Old bands reuniting twenty years later can really spell trouble, but for Matt Bianco it's proven to be a freaking great idea, and Matt's Mood demonstrates the monster talents of its original lineup. It's a fantastic amalgam of pop, jazz, swing, Latin, retro, lounge, spy, even chill, thrown into a great spin. It won't shock fans of Basia's solo work, yet it has plenty of surprises, and heads in a notably jazz-oriented direction. You can hear influences from Brazil '66 to Manhattan Transfer to soundtracks from swinging movies like Pink Panther, Mission Impossible or the James Bond series-- all done with love, not with cheap irony. These three tried this twenty years ago on the Whose Side Are You On album but Matt's Mood truly brings the sound into its own.

Danny White has become an even bigger piano virtuoso since the last Basia album. Not only does he deliver gorgeous straight piano work, he also handles the more electric-sounding keyboards and organs with finesse-- in lesser hands, the '60s feel of the music could have been turned into a schlockfest. Instead, the arrangements are complex without being overdone, and everything sounds organic even if it comes from electronic equipment. He's always been underrated and one truly hopes he gets the acclaim he's long deserved.

Basia Trzetrzelewska sounds as if eleven years had never passed, and these songs are definitely some of her best vocal work. She seems to be having a great deal of fun too, particularly on the energetic samba La Luna, while the pensive Say The Words is beautifully emotive. Her lyrics, while not as confessional as on her solo work, have enough intrigue to add another dimension to her vocals, and true to form she sings a bit in Polish, notably on Wrong Side of the Street.

Old bands rounding up their old members usually spells trouble, but for Matt Bianco it's a freaking great idea, and Matt's Mood demonstrates the monster talents of its original lineup. It's a fantastic amalgam of pop, jazz, swing, Latin, retro, lounge, spy, in both English and Polish, thrown into a great spin. It won't shock fans of either the '86-'03 Matt Bianco or of Basia's solo work, but at the same time MB changes up the game by going more retro on many tracks. You can hear influences from Brazil '66 to Manhattan Transfer to soundtracks from swinging movies like Pink Panther, Mission Impossible or the James Bond series-and all done with love, not with cheap irony. These three tried this twenty years ago on the Whose Side Are You On album and while that was quite good, Matt's Mood fulfills the promise that the first album didn't quite deliver.

Danny White has morphed into an even bigger piano virtuoso than on his last recording with Basia. Not only does he deliver gorgeous straight piano work, he also handles the more electric-keyboard and organ sounds with finesse-in lesser hands, the '60s feel of the music could have been turned into a schlockfest. Instead, the arrangements are complex without being overdone, and everything sounds organic even if it comes from electronic equipment. He's always been underrated and one truly hopes he gets the acclaim he's long deserved.

Basia Trzetrzelewska sounds as if ten years had never passed, and it could be argued that these songs are among her best vocal work. She seems to be having a great deal of fun too, particularly on La Luna, and tracks like Say The Words are beautifully done.

It's good to hear quality music once again! Matt Bianco has always been a musically exceptional group throughout the years. I've been a fan for many years and am definitely glad they've reunited. This particular release features Basia more at the forefront at the vocals, compared to their debut release over twenty years ago. Their signature jazz-latin sound still remains. With the return of Danny White, the album has an even more of a modern film noir-like theme ("Wrong Side Of The Street" & "Kaleidoscope"). It reminds me of "Whose Side Are You On" with a touch of Basia's "The Sweetest Illusion". Other notable songs are "La Luna" (classic cha-cha sound!) and the latin swing-jive vibe of "Slip and Sliding". There are even beautifully written and arranged ballads such as "I Never Meant To" and the heartfelt "Say The Words". "Golden Day" is a bright uplifting song that reminds me of days when I would wonder around the city during the workweek. "Ordinary Day" is a great opening tune, keeping in the true bossa nova sound. The great standout is the tribute to the late great Ronnie Ross in "Ronnie's Samba" (who played mean baritone sax on the album!)It seemed as though he never left! The closer "Matts Mood III" is always a great instrumental to finish off a great CD. Overall this a great release featuring the fantastic musicianship of both Danny and Peter White as well as Kevin Robinson (Incognito) and Tim Cansfield (Swing Out Sister). The long time cohorts of Andrew Ross and Julian Crampton also appear on the CD. Even though this a big departure from recent Matt Bianco releases, this album stands out on it's own. Perhaps there's truth to the idea of comming to a full circle. Mr.Read more ›
