Brenda Russell (née Gordon; April 8, 1949, Brooklyn, New York ) is an American singer-songwriter and keyboardist. Known for her diverse musical style, her recordings have encompassed several genres, including pop, soul, dance, and jazz. Her hits included "Piano in the Dark" (1988) and "Get Here" (1991), which was a hit for Oleta Adams.
Upon the release of this album, Brenda Russell was not given the praise she was due. However, as the years have passed, her music has become priceless. This album only featured two single releases: "So Good, So Right" and "Way Back When. The former is a mellow yet jubilant number paced by an acoustic piano and an appealing arrangement. It landed at number 15 on the Billboard R&B charts. Fortunately, radio and the public picked up on this indelible album. Of the eight selections, none falls short of being exemplary. The most notable songs not released as singles are the progressively jazzy number "In the Thick of It" and the sentimental ballad "If Only for One Night. Luther Vandross did an outstanding remake of the latter. All the selections are arranged and produced with a universal appeal. The album was later re-released with the hit single "Piano in the Dark" as a bonus track.
Brenda Russell is an adult-contemporary singer-songwriter that hit the music scene in 1979 with her debut album "Brenda Russell".

The story goes, it came up while washing dishes and, still wearing an apron, she rushed to the piano wrote it down.
