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

My daughter was 4 when we bought our first album. We saw her 2X and the second time I took her and her little sister. Great songs and songstress!

I raised my children with Basia and to this day, Sarah Rice still cries out for PROMISES and hearing her music just brings back the best memories of my life. I brought my second child to Basia concert when he was a month. Put earplugs in his ears, but couldn't miss her for the world!

Funny thing is that I ran across Basia by accident and now I realize it wasn't by accident at ALL!!! I was searching for jazz music at a record store in 1991..."A New Day For You" came across the stores system systematic systematic system and couldnt get it out of my head...ever since, her voice has been my peace...

Found out about Basia while listening to a Jazz Station in New York in 1994, and loved what I heard. She has an elegant style about her.

I've been a fan of Basia for what seems forever. I put her music above all that I've known. From my daughters birth of her first two children and for the best times and the worst of my times.But when I hear her voce and her songs I feel so much better. Along ith Nina Simone, she is the best female vocalist ever

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!
