Matt Bianco’s Mark Reilly and New Cool Collective celebrate the launch of their collaboration album The Things You Love with a new UK tour.
Matt Bianco first came to fame in the early 1980s. Their 1984 album Whose Side Are You On? proved their worldwide breakthrough – a record with a fresh new sound introducing jazz to a chart scene still dominated by British new wave, ska and punk. The band went on to have a string of hit singles such as Get Out of Your Lazy Bed, Half a Minute and Sneaking Out the Back Door.
New Cool Collective, the pioneers of the Dutch jazz scene have been together for 24 years, mastering their unmistakable mix of jazz, Latin, afrobeat, boogaloo and groove influences. The group’s amazing discography includes all kinds of sounds and collaborations. Whatever and whoever the band play with, New Cool make its mark as an endlessly swinging, virtuoso, dynamic music machine.
