Product Description


technical comment

  • Two years after Just Like A Lady, her first album for naïve, Mina Agossi once again proves that she’s a different singer - Red Eyes, her new album featuring Archie Shepp and two guitarists, expresses her love for Blues, Soul and Jazz, off the beaten tracks. Agossi is now firmly established as a singer and songwriter of unique talent, and following her three album stint with Candid she is one of the few European (well, French-Beninese actually) vocalists to really make it big in the UK market.

    On her new album Agossi once again mixes all her influences, bringing distinctive new songs of her own and covers of Jimi Hendrix ("Red House" with Archie Shepp on tenor) and Billy Idol ("Eyes Without A Face"). On "The Stars are in Your Eyes", a composition by Archie Shepp written for Sarah Vaughan, she duets with Archie in an almost irresistibly soft mood.
