    Matt Bianco  

    This group was formed in 1982 from the disbanded Blue Rondo A La Turk.  The name Matt Bianco is a name made up by the band members who said that it is "a made up spy, a secret agent; we love spy TV themes and film scores".  After hiring Basia their first album Whose Side Are You On? was released in 1984 and several successful hits came from it.  Basia and Danny White left the group after the first album to pursue a successful solo career and Mark Fisher was brought in to replace Danny White.  They hired Emilio Estefan who produced their album Indigo at his studios and chose the singles to be taken from it.  In 1991/2 they split from their record company, Warner Brothers, and became freelance and recorded in their own studios.  They split amicably after twenty years and in 2003 the original line-up with Basia reformed.  In 2004 they released the album Matt's Mood and in 2005 they went on a worldwide tour and in 2007 are touring Europe.
