The Spartan backing which Mina employs is essential to the Agossi persona. "Working with just bass and drums gives me the freedom to improvise, not bound by the chords of the piano." This is evidenced by her take on the opener - "Why Don't You Do Right?" made famous by Peggy Lee. "Ghost of Yesterday", generally associated with Billie Holiday too, has the typical Agossi slant. She gets 'down and dirty' on the 12 bar "Laundry Man Blues" - written about a friend she met in the local laundry near her Paris home. The prodigious Hiele contributes. Catch his bass fiddling and upper register work on "Father's Talk" and "Drive" aided and abetted by Ichiro Onoe's tuneful and imaginative drum work, especially on the somewhat sinister "Don't Look at Me and You".
