In 2016, renowned band Incognito release a 3CD box of classic albums, with killer bonus tracks.
Led by Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick for more than 30 years, Incognito are known for their trademark horns and a driving rhythm section, and an incredible line-up of vocalists including Maysa, Imaani, Tony Momrelle, Carleen Anderson, Kelli Sae, Joy Rose, Joy Malcolm and Vanessa Haynes, all of whom are featured on this stunning 3CD collection.
The package comprises the first three albums recorded by the band after parting company with Talkin’ Loud in 2003 – “Who Needs Love”, which includes a cameo from Brazil’s Ed Motta; “Adventures In Black Sunshine”, which includes a keyboard cameo from the late George Duke on “Mindin’ My Business”’ and which features no fewer than seven vocal performances from Maysa; and “Eleven”, with guest vocalist Carleen Anderson in stunning form on “Show Me Love”.
Two previously unreleased tracks are added to “Eleven” – a fine remake of the Ned Doheny cult classic “To Prove My Love”, and an extended workout on the funky “Feel The Real”, a UK hit for David Bendeth in the late Seventies, with Imaani on vocals.
And added as a bonus track to “Who Needs Love” is the Ski Oakenfull remix of “Zaius”, a jazz-funk instrumental classic originally released in 1976 by Eddie Russ.
