This track is a Capitol radio session, circa 1981 or 1982, very early on the career of Basia Trzetrzelewska, long before she became a solo artist and popularized herself with her album, “Time and Tide.” Basia provided the vocals with Ian Lynn on the piano. Music by Ronnie Ross and lyrics by Peter Ross. The album was called “Basia and Danny White rarities, 1981.”
Basia Trzetrzelewska is a Polish singer-songwriter and record producer. She is noted for possessing a wide vocal range, approximately three octaves that span from contralto to soprano tessituras, as well as her singular jazz-influenced stylings and multi-layered harmonies. Born in Jaworzno, Poland, she debuted as a guest of local amateur rock band Astry and performed with them on Polish Festival of Beat Avangarde in Kalisz, where they won in 1969. She later relocated to London in 1981. It was there she met Mark Reilly and longtime collaborator Danny White (brother of jazz guitarist Peter White). In 1983, the trio performed as the jazz-pop group Bronze but later changed their name to Matt Bianco and recorded their debut album Whose Side Are You On?, released in 1984.
After launching her solo career in 1987, her first album Time and Tide was released which sold almost two million copies, hitting it on the top 30 list on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The rest, as they say, is history.
