About

The LJF at the 606 Club has something of a "French" feel to it this year. Born in France in 1972 to French and West African parents, the award-winning Mina Agossi is making a welcome return to the Club after a highly successful debut earlier in the year. A skilled performer with a unique style and delivery Mina first came to attention in 1995 when she co-produced an album of original tunes entitled “Voice & Bass”, using no wind, brass or keyboard instruments. That album won the “Young Self-Produced Talents” Award, giving her the chance to develop her skills through studies in the US and France. After moving to Paris she continued to grow and develop as an artist of considerable force and creativity, producing a series of highly acclaimed albums and establishing herself both in Europe and the US. After working with the likes of iconic US saxophonist Archie Shepp, in 2001 she produced her first live album, recorded in Brooklyn, eponymously titled “E-Z Pass to Brooklyn” that took elements of hip hop, world music, blues and rock, and in 2005 she won ‘Best Newcomer’ at The Adami Awards that led to her appearing at numerous festivals and Clubs around the world. Mina is currently promoting her latest 11th album “Fresh” which she says “…breaks down barriers, reinventing the music…blurring the boundaries between jazz, pop, rock… giving a new perspective on a 20 year career”. Tonight Mina will be performing material from “Fresh” with her terrific, high class, French band of Romain Ross on guitar, Eric Jacot on bass and Simon Bernier on drums. This is a terrific gig from one of world jazz’s outstanding vocal talents....
