Imaani, the voice of Incognito – debut solo album ‘Standing tall’.
“One of the most wonderful and memorable voices which has graced so many Incognito albums” – Bluey
Imaani credits the legendary Jocelyn Brown for introducing her to the music business and nurturing the seeds of her young talent. Having performed worldwide with such luminaries as: Chaka Khan, Nile Rodgers, Maceo Parker, Philip Bailey, Jimmy Cliff, Gloria Gaynor and Carleen Anderson.
But she is best know as the emotive and delicious voice of British Acid Jazz sensations ‘Incognito’. During the course of her long running relationship with Bluey Maunick soul soaked Jazzers, she completed several world tours and featured on no less than 11 studio albums. Incognito’s debut album, Jazz Funk, was released in 1981, 15 albums followed, the latest being Amplified Soul in June 2014.
Imaani’s debut solo album ‘Standing Tall’ is out now on Dome Records. This is a culmination of her very successful collaboration with producer/singer-songwriter Kevin Leo. ‘Standing Tall’ is a body of work that celebrates all of the styles of music that Imaani loves and combines them with strong hooks, soulful melodies and a distinct production.
A wonderful night of true British soul action is in store!
