Supported by one of the world's most prestigious jazz orchestras under the baton of Henk Meutgeert, Matt Bianco's Mark Reilly and Mark Fisher perform the band's best-known songs (Half a Minute, Whose Side Are You On, Get Out of Your Lazy Bed, More Than I Can Bear, Don't Blame it on That Girl). Founded in 1983, the British band's Latin-flavoured jazz pop found favour with a large audience by the middle of the eighties. The name is often believed to denote a single person (such as an alias for leader Mark Reilly), but band members deny this to be the case. Mark Fischer joined Mark Reilly when Danny White, another of the three founding members, left the band. The contribution of the new keyboardist, lyricist and producer radically changed the sound of Matt Bianco, making it more contemporary. In the middle of the 1990s the group disbanded. In 2003 the original trio formation released an album before two members left, and Reilly reunited with Fisher. Having worked as a duo ever since, the two first released compilation albums before going on to prove the viability of their cooperation with a new original, the 2009 HiFi Bossanova. The band that will accompany them now has earned strong jazz credentials for its parent institution, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
