IncognitoAmplified Soul ... CD
Shanachie, 2014. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Incognito never lets us down – and records like this keep us listening strongly year after year! The set's got all the core brilliance of Incognito at their best – a really classic approach to jazzy soul, served up with top shelf instrumentation by the group – and sent home strongly by a range of singers who include Vandessa Haynes, Tony Momrelle, Chiara Hunter, Imani, Deborah Bond, and the great Carleen Anderson! Nobody can do it as well as these guys – tight, but never uptight – smooth, but never sleepy – really right on the money from the production on down to the bottom – the kind of careful, classy soul that almost makes Incognito a genre unto themselves. Titles include "Wind Sorceress", "Rapture", "Hands Up If You Wanna Be Loved", "Hats", "I Couldn't Love You More", "Something Bout July", and "Silver Shadow". CD

IncognitoPositivity ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal, 1993. Used ... $2.99
Wonderful work from Incognito – perhaps their greatest album ever! By the time of this 1993 release, this Brit funky soul combo was in perfect form – blending together classic modes of jazz funk into a tight modern blend that's lasted a lot longer than anyone might have thought at the time. From the perspective of nearly a decade later, this album glistens like a lost soul jewel – perfectly fitting in between some of our favorite 70s albums, and a few of the better sides from recent years. The vocals are great, the riffing is tight, and the production is smooth and soulful all the way through. Tracks include "Still A Friend Of Mine", "Positivity", "Smiling Faces", "Do Right", "Better Days", "Talkin Loud", and "Thinkin About Tomorrow". CD

IncognitoTribes, Vibes, & Scribes ... CD
Verve/Suonaphone, 1992. Used ... $3.99
A stunning little set from Incognito – the group's first full album on Talkin Loud records, and a set that's head and shoulders above their earlier jazz funk from the 80s! The sound here has a real "instant classic" quality – not just because it's dripping with the best references from the jazzier side of 70s soul (think Fantasy Records at its best!) – but also because it's so well put together, with a sense of instrumentation that's tight, yet an overall groove that's relaxed and fairly spontaneous – something that was quite rare at the time the record was released! Bluey is at the height of his powers here – stepping strongly into a run of great work that would last for well over a decade – and other key figures include Maysa Leak on vocals, Kevin Robinson on trumpet, and Graham Harvey and Peter Hinds on keyboards. Titles include a killer remake of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing", plus "Change", "Colibri", "Magnetic Ocean", "Closer To The Feeling", "Tribal Vibes", "Pyramid", and "I Love What You Do For Me".

New IncognitoWho Needs Love (US version with bonus track) ... CD
Narada/Virgin, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Do these guys ever lose their touch? We think not – as this album, the group's umpteenth, is pretty darn great! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy Rose, Kelli Sae, Tony Momrelle, Joy Malcolm, and Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta! The range of voices on the set really gives it a lot of depth – moving past the easy jazz funk moments of earlier sets, and going for an all-solid, all-soulful approach that really blows our mind! Great stuff all the way through – maybe their best album in years – and a record you'll be playing into the next decade. Titles include "Morning Sun", "Who Needs Love", "Stone Cold Heart", "Where Love Shines", "Blue", "Fly", "If You Want My Love", and "Cada Dia". US version features a bonus remix of "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" by The Brand New Heavies. CD

New Alphonse MouzonMan Incognito ... CD
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A monstrous bit of jazz funk from drummer Alphonse Mouzon – spacey tracks in a choppy style that reminds us a bit of some of the best European fusion albums from the period, but with a harder groove overall! Mini Moog and ARP trip out the sound throughout, but the underlying rhythms are nice and heavy. Lee Ritenour's on guitar, and he gets a lot of play on the record – but the main groove is Alphonse's heavy funky snakefoot! Al's drums and percussion are furiously frenetic, and he also plays a lot of keyboards – and other players include Tom Scott on tenor, Dave Grusin on clavinet, Victor Feldman on bongos and congas, and Charles Meeks on bass. A few tracks have vocals – by Marty McCall, Jackie Ward, and Caroline Willis – as well as Alphonse himself and the album's also got two very nice break-oriented tracks – "Snake Walk" and "New York City" – both with nice hard drums! Titles include a number of other good fusion groovers, like "Without A Reason", "Just Like the Sun", "Before You Leave", "Just Like The Sun", and "Mouzon Moves On". CD

A great jazz dance classic – served up here in two different versions! Eddie Russ takes off with the original "Zaius" on side one – a masterful blend of keyboard lines and conga grooves – all done with spacey style of funk! Incognito take over on the flip – with a version that's a bit fuller, but still equally great on the keyboard tip! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bluey from Incognito makes a guest appearance here – adding in some even jazzier touches to his mix of "Abraco De Bossa" – a great way of making an already-great tune even better than before! "A Seed In You" is a tune that features guest vocals from Leon Ware – whose English lyrics are a great fit for the Portuguese musings of Guida DaPalma! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New IncognitoCan't Get You Out Of My Head (orig, Brand New Heavies Trunk Funk rmx, Venom'z Ghetto Soul rmx, video) ... CD
Dome (UK), 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best tracks off Incognito's excellent Who Needs Love album – remixed nicely! The original version is a smooth little groover with a really deep feel – and on the Brand New Heavies mix, the track gets a bit more of an 80s sort of beat approach – pumped up, but not too much so, with some nice bass pedal work! Vemom'z mix adds in more beats too – but cools down the other elements, and overall gives the track a nice kicked back kind of feel! CD

A great remake of the classic "Listen To The Music" – lifted from Incognito's Black Sunshine album, and served up here in a sparkling remix by Ski Oakenfull! The original's great enough, but the new mix has some very kicking beats – and it's backed here by the nicely tippling "Principles Of Love" – a catchy soulful glower with some great snapping drums at the bottom!

Mario BiondiSun ... CD
Sony, 2013. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

Ana CaramSunflower Time ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1996. New Copy ... $13.99
A great introduction to the music of Ana Caram – an early session recorded both in London and Brazil – with all the great mix of modes that might imply! The album's breathy and bossa in some spots, but full and jazzy in others – and Ana's equally at home in both settings! Some tracks feature just vocals and guitar, while others bring in a bit of light acoustic instrumentation – while others expand with a soulful vibe that's mighty nice, especially on three of the album's tracks produced by Bluey from Incognito. Titles include "Agua De Beber", "Mas Que Nada", "Overjoyed", "Odara", "Port Of Call", "Wave", and "Filhos De Gandi". CD

New Citrus SunPeople Of Tomorrow ... CD
Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A really sweet set from this Incognito side project – a group who are even jazzier than usual work from Bluey and crew! The album's mostly instrumental – save for some great guest vocals from Valerie Etienne – and the focus is on longer solos on keyboards, guitar, and trumpet – all spun out over the kind of classic grooves you'd expect from Incognito! Think of the record as a jazz fusion project from the late 70s, with some R&B undercurrents – just the kind of set that only a rare few like Bluey could do so well. Valerie sings on a great cover of Terry Callier's "What Color Is Love", and the album also features an instrumental take on "What's Going On", plus the tracks "Yesterday Detroit", "Cooking With Walter", "Tonight We Dance", "Mais Uma Vez", and "People Of Tomorrow".

Friends From RioFriends From Rio 2014 ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the best records in years from the mighty Far Out label – and a set that really takes the imprint back to its roots! The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative effort between a range of Brazilian and British talents – served up in a style that bridges the gap between older bossa and more contemporary modes! The music is perfect from the ground up – not a cheesy bossa remix project, but a true blend of all the best elements, served up in a rich new style. The project gets key Incognito-style help from Daniel "Venom" Maunick, and a real Azymuth pedigree from Alex Malheiros – and the whole thing features a great range of different singers, including Hyldon, Robertinho Silva, Aleh Ferreira, Ivan Matheus, Denise Pinaud, Sabrina Malheiros, and Carlos Dafe – each wrapped up in a sweet blend of Fender Rhodes, organ, riffing guitar, and sweet jazzy horns. Titles include "So Resta A Porta Se Abrir", "Mas Que Nada", "Garota", "Casino Bangu", "Batucada Bidu", and "Mulher Malagueta". LP, Vinyl record album

Maysa LeakAll My Life (UK pressing) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2000. Used ... $4.99
A great modern soul album – and the new release from Maysa Leak, the lovely voice behind some of Incognito's best albums! If you know Incognito, you can guess the sound here – but the overall approach is different, with a lot more emphasis on soul sounds and jazzy arrangements, all produced by Bluey, in a manner that's great for Maysa's rich soulful voice! The record follows perfectly in the soulful tradition set by some of London's best singers of the past decade, but it also moves to a whole new level, with nice jazzy touches that remind us of some of the recent American underground soul work, like stuff by N'Dambe or Laurnea. Titles include "Blue Light", "Mirrors", "Hooked On Your Love", "Shadows & Light", "Got To Be Strong", "Earth Child", and a great cover of Gil Scott-Heron's classic "The Bottle". CD

A tremendous little record from Muzart – upbeat, positive, and wonderfully grooving right from the start – served up in a beautiful blend of club rhythms and righteous soul, all with a sense of precision that we haven't heard this well in years! The vibe here is a bit contemporary, but there's a classic care to the record right from the start – an approach that instantly has the group at the level of major groovers like Incognito or The Rurals – but with a fresh, youthful feel that really befits their look on the cover and their origin! Everything's got a sense of energy and surprise that goes way beyond the usual – a commitment to really make things interesting from the ground up – and not just phone in some soulful message over half-baked grooves. Acoustic elements dance along nicely with electric ones – and titles include "Jukebox", "Oh Yeah", "Long Long Time", "The Great I Am", "Moemedi", "Not In Tha Mood", and "The Party After". CD

Oneness Of JujuAfrican Rhythms ... LP
Black Fire, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A landmark of 70s Afro-styled jazz – and the first album by this famous underground collective! Oneness of Juju were a Washington DC-based group that grew out of the ashes of the Juju avant jazz ensemble – formed in the culturally rich African-American community of DC in the 70s, with spiritual and political aspirations that stretched far beyond the average funky combo. This first album is a masterful blend of percussion, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – alternating vocal tracks with harder-hitting jazz instrumentals, all held together under the leadership of sax player Plunky Nakabinde – a reedman whose work here alone is worth the price of admission – laid out nicely alongside some great percussion, Fender Rhodes, and wonderfully worm vocals on a few tracks. The album's one of the greatest independent soul jazz albums of the 70s – and it's filled with great tracks, such as the breakbeat classic "African Rhythms" and "Liberation Dues" – plus "Kazi", "Funky Wood", "Don't Give Up", "Poo Too", and "Incognito".

The album's a great no-nonsense contemporary soul affair – put together in a really old school sort of way that recalls the energy of Brand New Heavies or Incognito at their best – with a similar blend of funk and jazz alongside some positive, upbeat lyrics – and an overall groove that's definitely inspired by the best of the 70s soul generation! Male and female vocals mix together to give the record a nice full sound – and titles include "Rainy Day In London", "There's A Time For Everything", "Classic Lady", "Distance Can Be Sweet", "Give Into The Night", and "Morning Light".

Sweeeeeet work from the wonderful Maysa Leak – quite possibly her best album so far! The record has a really warm original feel – far steps from the earlier Incognito-influences sound of past records (not that that was a bad thing, mind you – but it's even better to hear Maysa stepping out on her own!) The songs are incredibly seductive – a good blend of original tunes, and covers of work by Jhelisa, Earth Wind & Fire, Sly Stone, and other influential artists.

Smooth Sailing from Maysa Leak – a wonderful little record that captures all the warmth and soul of her work with Incognito, yet which also steps forward strongly in her own voice as well! The album's got a bit of Incognito help from Bluey and crew, but a number of tracks make a nice change by featuring production from Rex Rideout, Will Downing, and Herman (p-Nut) Johnson. The tunes are laidback and mellow, with Maysa's vocals stretching out in a style that's righteous, but nicely restrained – coming across with all the maturity you'd expect from her years in the studio, yet always sounding fresh, personal, and inspired. Titles include "Hypnotic Love", "Smooth Sailing", "Soul Child", "So Very Hot", "All Day Long", and "Scat World". CD

A great reworking of this sweet sweet album from Azymuth – served up in a package that features the core original album, plus all the great remixes that came afterward! The core record is heavy Fender Rhodes from Azymuth – sounding almost better here than we've heard them for years! There's a stripped-down, all-classic feel that takes us right back to the group's best work of the 70s – partly because Jose Roberto Bertrami sticks to Fender Rhodes exclusively on the set – using the classic keyboards with a righteous vibe that really brings a hell of a lot of soul to play! And there's also a bit of Incognito help on the production, which helps ensure just the right sound – nothing too modern, nor too gimmicky – just pure Brazilian fusion all the way through – proof that the old ways are still often the best. Titles include "In My Treehouse", "Isso E Partido Alto", "Carnaval Legrand", "Diz No Pe", "Meu Mengo", "Crazy Clock", and "Aurora". The remixes really take off strongly – and push the group's jazzy roots into rich new territory for the clubs – on cuts that include "Aurora (4 Hero rmx)", "In My Treehouse (We Are The Horsemen rmx)", "Ta Nessa Ainda Bicho (Maddslinky rmx)", "Carnaval Legrand (Opolopo rmx)", "Diz No Pe (Kirk Degiorgio rmx)", "Crazy Clock (LTJ Xperience rmx)", and "Ta Nessa Ainda Bicho (Zed Bias 4 x 4 rmx)".

A great bit of smooth modern soul from Kloud 9 – an American duo with a sound that's reminiscent of the mellow Isley Brothers work of the late 70s and early 80s! These guys are totally great – warm, soulful, and in a mode that male vocalists hardly seem to match these days – voices drifting back and forth with effortless ease, yet also hitting a deeper approach that keeps things going very strong – mixed with keyboards for a sweetly soulful groove all the way through. The album features guest production by Bluey of Incognito and Ray Hayden of Opaz, a guest appearance by Incognito, duet vocals with Karen Bernod – but the real strength lies in the work of Kloud 9, a great pair of singers we hope to hear more from! Titles include "Never Knew", "If You Ever", "Let's Not Lose", "Priority", "Soul Mate", "Promise", "With Me", "Make You Mine", "Mercy Of Your Love", "A Moment", and "On Kloud 9". US pressing features 2 bonus tracks – "Everything About This Love" and "Ready Willing Wanting". CD

New Mighty FireNo Time For Masquerading/Mighty Fire ... CD
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of overlooked gems from Mighty Fire – back to back on a single CD! No Time For Masquerading is a wonderful debut full length from Mighty Fire – a group whose roots lead back to lots of previous work for Motown, and as The Flakes – stepping out here as a tight quintet with a wonderfully focused sound! Despite the 80s date of the record, the sound feels like the best combo funky soul from the previous decade – really sharp and on the money, but never commercial or chart-sounding at all – a perfect balance of so many wonderful warm elements, with the kind of jazzy touches you might hear in later groups like Incognito or Brand New Heavies. Guitarist Mel Bolton handles the arrangements, and most of the songwriting too – and trumpeter Harry Kim handles the horns, with the same warm vibe he'd later bring to his work with Earth Wind & Fire. Titles include "Sweet Fire", "Love Fantasy", "I Could Write A Love Song", "Missing You", and "Look What You Made Me Do". Mighty Fire is smooth stepping soul from a group who burn with a great mellow version of their name, which really helps to focus their energy throughout! There's a cool, classy vibe to the set – one that draws on the professional strengths of some of the group members, who also find a way to keep things personal and down to earth too – especially at the time of the album's release, when so many other folks were rushing to electrify their groove, and replace a lot of humanity with keyboards and drum programs. Most of the instrumentation is still in the live funk mode – played by the core members of the quintet – and titles include "You Satisfy Me", "Just A Little Bit", "Heavy Rotation", "Start It Up", "Sweet Lady", and "You Got Everything".

The sound is incredible – like finding some lost indie disco album from the end of the 70s – steeped in soulful production, and coming across as a stone winner on every single track! Imagine the excitement you felt when you first heard Incognito – and at that, you've only got a small bit of the sound! Titles include "Twinkle", "We Will Turn You On", "Until The End Of Time", "Fly Away (parts 1 & 2)", "Far Beyond", and "Just Do It". CD

Stunning sounds from the soul lounge – a magical place filled with the hippest contemporary cuts from the underground – all served up at an astoundingly low price!

New Dokta VenomBurnt Roses EP ... 12-inch
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A new project from Dokta Venom – who you may just know as Venom – son of Bluey from Incognito, and a frequent partner of that funky group as well! The style here is very much Venom's own – lean club tracks that lie somewhere in a space between house and disco, depending on the tune – as some moments are pretty lean, with just beats and keyboards – while others have a fuller, more developed instrumental vibe, and some of the older feel you'd know from Incognito. Titles include "Only U", "Burnt Roses", "Space Dust", and "Rum Vapour". 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Friends From RioFriends From Rio 2014 ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best records in years from the mighty Far Out label – and a set that really takes the imprint back to its roots! The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative effort between a range of Brazilian and British talents – served up in a style that bridges the gap between older bossa and more contemporary modes! The music is perfect from the ground up – not a cheesy bossa remix project, but a true blend of all the best elements, served up in a rich new style. The project gets key Incognito-style help from Daniel "Venom" Maunick, and a real Azymuth pedigree from Alex Malheiros – and the whole thing features a great range of different singers, including Hyldon, Robertinho Silva, Aleh Ferreira, Ivan Matheus, Denise Pinaud, Sabrina Malheiros, and Carlos Dafe – each wrapped up in a sweet blend of Fender Rhodes, organ, riffing guitar, and sweet jazzy horns. Titles include "So Resta A Porta Se Abrir", "Mas Que Nada", "Garota", "Aguai", "Casino Bangu", "Batucada Bidu", "Anthemia", "Leita De Pedra", and "Mulher Malagueta". CD

Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Rare British disco, club soul and jazzy funk from the late 70s & early 80s – compiled by Joey Negro – hard to find numbers from Mirage, Incognito, Hudson People, Intrigue and many more!

New VariousLuxury Soul 2014 (3CD box set) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Richly soulful sounds for a mighty nice price – with a lot of great tunes by soul legends and contemporary torch carriers alike – in a nicely paced 3CD set! A good deal of the tracks here put a contemporary twist on the sophisticated soul sounds of the later 70s and into the 80s – the kind that eschewed trends for an easygoing, timeless vibe – and still sounds fresh, as practiced by long-time faves such as Bluey from Incognito, Adriana Evans, Maysa and many more current acts, legends like The Jones Girls, Keni Burke and Leon Ware, and many more. It's got some nice little smooth soul tunes, too, with 35 tracks on 3CDs: "Get 2 Know U" by Tyrone Lee, "Is It Me You're Thinking Of" by Soul Talk, "Take A Chance On Me" by Bluey, "Change" by Natasha Watts, "Jukebox" by Muzart, "RSVP" by James Day feat Donnie, "1978 (Leave The Radio On)" by Ed Motta, "Brighter Than The Sun" by Incognito feat Kelli Sae, "To The Sky" by Heston, "Open Sesame" by Beggar & Co, "Never Thought" by Adriana Evans, "It's You" by Keni Burke, "Work Me" by Leon Ware, "Love Has No Recession" by Kindred The Family Soul feat Fred Yonnet, "She's Got That Kinda" by Kloud 9, "Walk Away" by Maysa and more.

New Soul Bossa TrioDolphins ... CD
Moonbeat (Italy), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
This Japanese group have certainly grown up a lot – and this beautiful album is their most mature in years! The combo is fronted by singer Ann Sally – whose English language vocals add a tremendous amount of sophistication to the record – snaking forth in a cool jazzy style that goes way past the easy bossa remake mode of earlier albums. Sally's voice is incredible, and it's mixed with a well-constructed set of backings by the group, music that is especially heavy in its use of Fender Rhodes! The track list is great, too – with wonderful remakes of Fred Neil's "The Dolphins", Flora Purim's "Light As A Feather", Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance", and Coltrane's "Naima". Sweet, mellow, jazzy, and wonderfully rich – the group's best album in years! Italian version of the album features 2 tracks not on the Japanese one – "Butterfly (Incognito rmx)" and "Sky (Soul Bossa Trio blue rmx)". CD
