Ross Windross - on Acid Jazz Records
Acid Jazz released a one-off single from the singer and co-writer of Soul II Soul’s Fairplay in 1991.
Rose Windross recorded her first reggae-inspired album whilst still at school but bumped into Eddie Piller on London’s rare groove scene where she promoted, worked the doors as a bouncer and danced her socks off at the popular Yum Yum club in the west end of London. It was a double A-sided 12” single co-produced by Duffer Of St George hustler Barrie K Sharpe, who was also on the label at the time.
The lyric to the soulful funky Living Life Your Own Way not surprisingly reflect Rose’s determination at the time to forge a career on her own terms. Rose still performs with Jazzy B in Soul II Soul, but this, her first and only solo release for the label, became one of Acid Jazz’s very first successful club anthems.
