Tonight, to start off our EFG London Jazz Festival programme, the 606 Club features one of the finest Soul/Groove singers in the UK, Incognito's Imaani plus her Special guest, Joy Rose. A terrific singer in the Soul/R&B tradition Imaani first came to prominence in 1998 as runner up in the Eurovision Song contest, producing the highly successful single “Where Are You” that charted around the world. Her worldwide tours, television, live and studio output since includes work with the likes of Gloria Gaynor, Carleen Anderson, Michael Bolton, Lulu and Beverley Knight, but she is probably best known as one of the featured singers with the iconic band “Incognito”, with whom she has worked for more than 12 years. A firm favourite at the 606 Club Imaani is simply superb. Joy Rose’s remarkable talents have been making serious waves amongst those who really know for some time. Although you may not recognise the name, there’s a very good chance you will recognise her remarkable voice, as Joy has been a featured performer with the likes of Sting and Jason Rebello (Jeff Beck) and is currently also one of the featured singers with Incognito. With her formidable vocal range and power she produces a set of original material that she describes as “a fusion of jazz, soul and gospel” – her single ‘Summer is Here’ reached no 1 in the UK soul charts. A fantastic opportunity to see these two world-class singers in an intimate venue with their brilliant band.
