The enduring success of Incognito is one of the great stories of UK music during the last 20 years.
Look at the recent history of soulful UK artists and you will find any number of short-lived acts that have achieved pop success. Narrow the list to those that have created a uniquely British sound and that have endured as a global phenomenon on their own terms and the list becomes short. Dues, then, to Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick and Incognito, celebrating over 25 years of positive vibes and undiluted jazz funk.
British band Incognito is widely known as the leading exponent of the acid jazz movement.
A look at their discography reveals that they have already released 13 albums and 11 compilations and remixes. Mastermind of the group is composer, record producer, guitarist and singer, Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick.
Bringing us hits such as Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing and Always There, Incognito is an ever-changing collective of amazing, vibrant, exciting and international musicians handpicked by Bluey to capture whatever vibe he is seeking on any given project.
The result is a dynamic musical entity that spans a vast range of styles and cultures. He claims to have used more than 1,000 different musicians and vocalists during the band's 30-year career, with lineups varying in size from eight pieces to fourteen to even larger configurations.
