Blue Rondo á la Turk (aka Blue Rondo A La Turk), was a British pop band named after a popular jazz tune by The Dave Brubeck Quartet. The band was formed by Chris Sullivan (vocals, in 1981), with: Moses Mount Bassie (sax), Mick "Lloyd" Bynoe (drums), Art Collins (sax), Geraldo d'Arbilly (born Brazil - percussion), Kito Poncioni (born Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - bass), Mark Reilly (born 20 Feb 1960, High Wycombe, Bucks, UK - guitar - later played with Matt Bianco), Christos Tolero (vocals), Tholo Peter Tsegona (trumpet) & Daniel White (born 26 Aug 1959, Letchwood, Hertfordshire, England - keyboards).
The group's debut album Chewing the Fat (1982) featured two chart singles, "Klacto Vee Sedstein" and the Top 40 hit "Me and Mr. Sanchez", but the band broke up by the time the second album "Bees Knees & Chickens Elbows" (1984) had been released. On that last album the bands name has been abbreviated "Blue Rondo"
