Cactus Music

Back in early 80s Soho, Blue Rondo A La Turk defined 'cool'. Singer/writer Chris Sullivan, guitarist Mark Reilly and vocalist Christos Tolera (with help from myriad talented personnel) married Latin jazz, R&B, Cuban and urban soul with a strong pop sensibility (witty lyrics, catchy melodies). After singles such as the Top 40 hit 'Me And Mr. Sanchez' and the irrepressible'Klacto Vee Sedstein' and debut album 'Chewing The Fat' in 1982, the team went their separate ways. While Mark Reilly and others founded Matt Bianco, a new line-up of the original combo re-emerged in autumn 1983 with shortened name Blue Rondo. Accompanied by new singles 'Slipping Into Daylight' (a club favourite at the time) and 'Masked.
