Basia

Polish vocalist Basia Trzetrzelewska spent several years in the pop band Matt Bianco, an offshoot of Blue Rondo à la Turk, before launching a solo career in 1987. With the musical assistance of Matt Bianco's Danny White, she developed a subtle cocktail jazz-pop first showcased on her 1987 debut album, Time and Tide. Supported by the singles "New Day for You" and "Time and Tide," the record became a hit in Europe and America, where the album went platinum. Basia's second record, 1990's London Warsaw New York, was just as successful, but her third effort, 1994's Sweetest Illusion, failed to find an audience. Clear Horizon: The Best of Basia followed in 1998 and proved to be her only release for several years, as the deaths of her mother and several close friends temporarily sapped Basia's drive to make music. Urged by her former bandmates Danny White and Mark Reilly to join the reunited Matt Bianco, however, she eventually returned to music in 2004 and issued Matt's Mood with the band. Basia then returned her focus to her solo career, releasing It's That Girl Again with White's help in early 2009. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

I first saw Basia on the Johnny Carson Show in 1987 and fell in love with her. I got my girlfriend (who would later become my wife) to enjoy her music. We saw her live in Chicago in 1990 for her London, Warsaw, New York tour and she was absolutely fabulous. She has such a gorgeous and energetic voice and her band is awesome.

The first song I heard from Basia was New Day For You. It spoke to my soul as an akward teen, that things would get better. Saw her in concert in 89, and she was awesome. Very talented and lovely lady. Thank you for getting me through the rough times Basia. God bless you!

I agree with egorski333, Basia is both, Talented and Beautiful. My favorite song is probably her rendition of The Waters of March.( Listen, if you haven't ). I HAVE GOT TO SEE HER IN CONCERT, at least once !

Basia is AWESOME ! She is right up there with Sade as Queens of my Heart. Her well-written music speaks to some point in your life, whether it be past, present or future. Her delivery - MAGNIFICENT ! Her Polish accent (listen her pronounce any word beginning with an H) drives me wild ! Her love of Latin rhythyms (Samba, Bossa Nova) adds to reasons I LOVE those mellow, soothing styles of music so much ! Again , simply AWESOME !

In 1987. I was on the Ohio Turnpike, driving from Detriot to D.C. and listening to 107.3 The Wave. That when I first heard Miles Away... and I've been hooked ever since! I like my Earth Wind and Fire, Patty Labelle, my P-Funk...but I like this as well! She's stopped being just New Age a long time ago. Thanks, Pandora!!!

Although I'm an early Baby Boomer, I didn't discover Basia until a year or so ago. The music may be over two decades old, but it's timelessly great!

Love her voice and music. Something to listen to on a long road trip.

I agree wholehearted l y with Kirk. The Sweetest Illusion CD was what turned me on to Basia. I think the music on that one was very creative and original. I'm surprised it wasn't more successful. Unfortunatel y , I don't think they even include it in the Pandora playlist. Pandora, are you listening?

I could listen to her all day and night (24/7). Great voice as well as back ground sound.

A voice as clear as a bell. Her lower range is full and rich. Basia is talented and beautiful all day long.

I'm trying Kathleen. Haven't a clue and I'm a huge fan of Basia.

Saw Basia once in concert. She made 4 costume changes. Long sequined gowns. She sings even better live. So romantic

Always loved Basia's music. I was baffled as to why The Sweetest Illusion was not a bigger success. I still think its her best CD, certainly my favorite.
