Like all the unforgettable records of the Matt Bianco discography, „HiFi Bossanova“ is a perfectly crafted pop gem with „noble“ infl uences of the best Latin and Jazz music.
„HiFi Bossanova“ is an album with no tricks, arranged with astonishing knowledge and recorded by a real big ensemble. No pro-tools tricks or studio cut and paste... Top level musicianship and a killer instinct for pop tunes. The male/female vocal trademark of Matt Bianco is again the main charachteristic of this new studio work: the sensual voices of Mark Reilly and Hazel Jayne Sim are just perfect one close to the other.
“Hifi Bossanova” is Matt Bianco’s thirteenth album. The roots of the band are still the same, but you can’t deny how Matt Bianco still have a fresh and contemporary sound: the twelve songs refl ect the evolution of the band sound over the years, still they sound fresh like if what you’re listening to was a debut album.
For all Soul fans, mods, post punks in love with Pop music, Northern Soul nostalgics... the band roots are still clearly recognizable. For all the others, this is just the perfect summer record.
