With the option of sea of musicians in the entire world to write about, I did not have any doubt whom I was going to write about: Anna Jantar. However, I had hard time to choose a song as an example among 140 songs which she recorded - only one of which I do not really like. Anna Jantar is very popular in Poland. She was also very popular in Germany in 70s. In the second half of the 70s she started being popular in entire Europe, later with this growing popularity she started performing in Northern America as well.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usIn the mid 70s, the song "So Much Sun in the Entire City" was sang by entire Polish nation and today it is classified as "evergreen" song in Poland. Her popularity did not end with her death and still continues so far in two generations of Poles. Anna’s songs are still ranking in top 10 in popular song from 70s polls and competitions. Annual song festival, established in 2005 "Pejzaz bez Ciebie" dedicated for singers who are already passed away but still very popular, dedicated the 2007 festival for Anna Jantar. Just recently, in 2008, Anna’s song won the first place in the competition for the best hit of 70s which is organized by the first national Polish radio channel, "Polish Radio I". In addition, since 2005 "Anna Jantar International Festival" has been continuing in Wrzesnia, Poland where young people between 14-30 years old compete for Grand Prix of Anna Jantar title.


I want to introduce Anna not only because of her variety of songs but also due to her poetic song lyrics with plenty of metaphors about life, her interpretation of the songs and her pleasant voice that many listeners find so much inspiration and happiness in everyday life.

I would also like to mention that, in 1974 after 9th Cisco74 International Song Competition in Castelbar, Ireland, one of the jury members, British compositor Les Reed - creator of some of the hits of Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdincka – had a comment in Irish Independent: "Until now I’ve known only two singers of that clear voice and that expression: Vici Leandres and Nana Muscouri. Here, in Castlebar I met third one, Polish, Anna Jantar". In an international poll by the "Panorama" magazine in the most famous Poles from 70s, her name was at the second place on the list after John Paul II. This also makes her the most famous Polish singer outside Poland.

In 1994 the book "Wspomnienia o Annie Jantar…Slonca Jakby Mniej" (Memories of Anna Jantar …Somehow There is Less Sun) was published by author Mariola Pryzwan. This was the first biography of Anna Jantar. It became widely popular in Poland and in 2000 the 3rd edition of this book was published. In 2005 her daughter, also singer, released another CD of Anna Jantar songs "Po Tamtej Stronie" (eng: On the Other Side) with few never released songs of Anna. This CD received 4th place in best seller in Poland. In 2008 there will be another book going to be released written by priest, Andrzej Witko. This new book is written in the form of a dialog with Anna Jantar.

Anna Jantar has a lot of fans and fan clubs to this day, and lots of their fans listen to her and talk/chat about her every day.



Biography:

Anna Maria Szmeterling (stage name Anna Jantar; also known well as "Amber" or "Sunny Girl") was born on June 10, 1950 in Poznan, Poland. She is part Polish and part Hungarian. Her grandmother immigrated to Poland from Hungary. At the age of four she started attending music kindergarten in National Higher Music School in Poznan. During this period of her education her music teachers noticed that Anna had superior music abilities. Anna started National Music School and at the age of 10 performed at Poznan Philharmonic. Among secondary and high school students Ania won a piano playing contest. Later she tried her vocal abilities and debuted as an amateur singer at age 14 since she did not believe she could become a good pianist. Anna also wanted to become an actress and passed her exams for the acting school in Warsaw. However, lack of points for worker-farmer social class stopped her from her dreams come true. Therefore, she decided to continue singing; debuted as an amateur singer in Poznan student clubs "Nurt" and "Od Nowa" singing poetry written by famous Polish poets. At Student Song Festival in Krakow in 1968 Anna got honorary award for singing "A Lipiec Gral" (eng: July Was Playing). At December the same year she debuted with song in Poznan Radio studios "Po Ten Kwiat Czerwony" (eng: For This Red Flower) with group Polne Kwiaty. Leader of this group, Andrzej Kosmala, actually proposed her to record that song together.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usOne year later, Anna got another recognition for her interpretation of "Laka Bez Kwiatow" (eng: Meadow without Flowers) on Artistic Festival of Academic Youth in Swinoujscie, Poland. In 1969 Anna joined Polish big-beat group "Waganci" during her time with them, she recorded the single "Co Ja w Tobie Widzialam" (eng: What Have I Seen in You) which became the song of the year for 1970 and together with this hit song Anna’s popularity started. The song got first place in all hit lists in Poland. In 1971 she married one of the "Waganci" musicians, a famous composer Jaroslaw Kukulski. He composed many of Anna Jantar’s songs and he had been managing her artistic performances throughout her career since their marriage. Anna and Jaroslaw moved to Warsaw since the capital of Poland had the best artistic opportunities. In 1972 she passed the exam created and mandated by Ministry of Culture and Art and became a professional singer. From this moment on, Anna decided to leave "Waganci" group and started her solo performance career under her stage name - Anna Jantar. A year later, she debuted in Polish Song Festival in Opole with her song "Najtrudniejszy Pierwszy Krok" (eng: The First Step the Hardest) which also became the song of the year 1973. Then came successes outside of Poland and in 1974 Anna Jantar received 3rd place among 32 singers from around the world in 9th International Song Competition "Cisco74" in Castelbar, Ireland for her song "Tak Wiele Jest Radosci" (eng: There is so Much Happiness). Just in the same year she got honorary at the festival in Lublana, former Yugoslavia (today Slovenia), for "Czas Jest Zlotem" (eng: Time is Golden); and 3rd place in "Coupe de’Europe" in Villach, Austria. Also, in 1974 Anna started recording songs in German that becomes very popular in Germany.


After her performance in Polish Song Festival in Opole in 1974 singing "Tyle Slonca w Calym Miescie" (eng: So Much Sun in The Entire City), this song became the song of the year for both 1974 and 1975 in Poland. In 1974, the same song also became the hit of International Sopot Festival; later recorded by other singers such as Hana Zagorova (former Czechoslovakia), Betty Dorsey or and Gerd Michaelis Chor from East Germany.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usIn 1975 in Sopot International Song Festival Anna received 2nd place for vocal performance of her song "Staruszek Swiat" (eng: The Elderly World). In addition, in the same festival, she received 2 more awards for: listener’s choice, hit of the festival 75, and editor’s award from "Glos Wybrzeza" for song "Tyle Slonca w Calym Miescie".  In this year Anna also got another award, in Germany; she got 2nd place for her song "Niech Ziemia Tonie w Kwiatach" (Eng.

Also, in the same year, Anna was touring with other Polish singer Slawa Przybylska and Canadian singer Diane Marschal through Canada.

Than came time for awards for her long plays. Therefore, Anna was awarded in Sopot International Song Festival in 1976 for her first long play released in 1974 "Tyle Slonca w Calym Miescie", which received golden status.

When Anna delivered a baby in 1976 she decided to make a break from her career for one year; however, not completely. Therefore, in 1976, her second long play "Za Kazdy Usmiech" (eng: For Every Smile) received gold status as well as top seller long play; song title receives 2nd place in category "Song of the Year" in Poland and the singer got 2nd place in the best singers’ category.


She released another album in 1977 "Zawsze Gdzies Czeka Ktos" (eng: Always Someone Waits Somewhere) which from all her long plays recorded this one did not get golden status. During 1978 Anna was very often touring with Vaclav Neckar throughout Europe. At the end of 70s Anna did not liked what she has done so far and felt that she need to change something in her style of singing. From now on until her death, Anna was looking for something new, experimenting. She started recording her songs with rock groups such as Budka Suflera and Perfect, singing in duets, trying other styles. Some music critiques did not like the experimenting of Anna saying that this style should not be singed by a pop singer.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usHowever, while experimenting in different music styles her popularity did not diminish. And in 1979 Anna received 2nd place in Helsinki, Finland at Interstudio Festival for her song "Tylko Mnie Popros Do Tanca" (eng: Only Invite Me for Dance) and got recognition from Finland’s music critics and public. Also in 1979 her song "Moje Jedyne Marzenie" (eng: My Only Dream) was at the first place in music charts in both Berlin and Warsaw. The same year, she received the title of "The singer of the 1979" and her song "Nic Nie Moze Wiecznie Trwac" (eng: Nothing Can Last Forever) became the song of the year 1979.


Many songs of Anna Jantar got status of "songs of the month or season" in Poland; for example, "Zeby Szczesliwym Byc" 74’; "Slonce za Mna Chodzi"; "Moj, Tylko Moj" song of the summer ‘75. "Kto Umie Tesknic" 77’; "Tylko Mnie Popros do Tanca" 78’; "Tak Dobrze Mi w Bialym" 79’ as well as "Pozwolil Nam Los" got 1st place in radio hit list. Outside Poland, Anna’s songs in 1979 were ranking in top lactations on the hit list in countries such as Hungary, Finland, Bulgaria, Soviet Union or Germany.

Between 1975 -1980 Anna regularly had performed over seas in the USA and Canada. For example, Anna was invited by an American manager B. Vinton for his TV Show in Florida. Some sources are mentioning that Anna also was invited to perform in San Francisco. Canadian agency "Lewan Show" proposed through Pagart to promote Anna in the USA and Canada. However, these proposals never materialized. Anna died in plane crash close to Warsaw Airport on March 14th, 1980 coming back from tour in the USA. According to the media, approximately 40,000 people came for her funeral on March 25 in Warsaw.

Anna Jantar’s fourth and last long play was released few months after her death in 1980, which also got soon golden status. And it was not last one record of Anna Jantar which received golden status. At the end of 1980 "Polish Records" agency released another long play collecting hits songs of Anna’s called "The Best of Anna Jantar" which also received golden status.

Since 1984 at Polish Song Festival in Opole, the title for the best debutant award is named "Anna Jantar Award".

Her songs were recorder and singed by Betty Dorsey, Goldie Ens, Glenn Weston, Richard Huet, horst Kruger or Gerda’s Michaelis choir. Anna’s music still inspires many of other Polish singers today such as Polish singers Magda Durecka, Eleni, Monika Borys. Some Polish singers dedicated songs for her memory; for example; Budka Suflera recorded song for Anna "Slonca Jakby Mniej" (eng: Somehow There is Less of the Sun; Halina Frackowiak recorded "Anna Juz Nie Mieszka Tu" (eng: Anna Does Not Live Here Anymore). Anna, on the other hand, was inspired by Gloria Gaynor and Roberta Flack, Diana Ross and Dinah Washington, and the most by Arleta Franklin. With Gloria Gaynor and Roberta Flack Anna had an occasion met in person in the USA.

The majority of her songs were in pop style, and later she started recording in rock style at the end of 70s. However, her songs were also some fusion of soul, jazz, swing, rock’n’roll, country, disco and waltz. For example, her song "Kto Wymyslil Nasza Milosc" (eng: Who Created Our Love) is a soul song, "Koncert Na Deszcz I Wiatr" (eng: Concert for Rain and Wind) is jazz, or her song "When You Said Yes" is a swing song with "Bedzie Dosc" (eng: It will be Enough) in rock’n’roll style.

Anna had a very diverse repertoire and plenty of combination of styles. She singed in 3 different languages: Polish, English and German. She introduced the most famous world songs either in English or Polish to the Poles during the time when they were separated from the Western influence. Anna watched the movie "Grease" a few times during her stay in the USA and at the Festival in Finland 79’ and she liked the songs singed by John Travolta and Olivia Newton -John; afterwards she decided to record two songs from the movie:

You, who bunch of my dreams have for nothing, have for nothing
My life has lasted so short,
You, who do not count the days in a year, do you know?
Do you know? What is the fear at the end of the day?
You don’t go to sleep
And I’m afraid.

Closer and closer I hear the steps
Only one moment left…

Just invite me to dance
I’m not expecting anything else,
From one end of the world to the other,
From hell to heaven’s gates.
Just invite me to dance
As you love me above everything
From the rosary hope I will give you forgiveness.

Just invite me to dance,
While the day is still young.
The clock’s face will become rusty
Before my time will come.
Image Hosted by ImageShack.usOh, just invite me to dance
In which the life will stop
This record, even though is scratched,
Still is playing.

You, who play games with our dreams,
And know my thoughts
And don’t take any chances with me
You, who hang the Suns, you know
You know very well-
Everything has an end
Are you afraid?
Just once listen to me
Don’t think about yourself.

Just invite me to dance
I’m not expecting anything else,
From one end of the world to the other,
From hell to heaven’s gates.
Just invite me to dance
As you love me above everything
From the rosary’s hope I will give you forgiveness.

(Nanatatananatata)…

Just invite me to dance,
While the day is still young
The clock’s face will become rusty
Before my time will come.
Just invite me to dance
In which the life will stop
This record, even though is scratched,
Still is playing.

Just invite me to dance
I’m not expecting anything else,
From one end of the world to the other,
From hell to heaven’s gates.
Oh, just invite me to dance
As you love me above everything
From the rosary’s hope I will give you forgiveness.

Just invite me to dance…
