IncognitoClassic Album Series (Who Needs Love/Adventures In Black Sunshine/Eleven/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 2002/2004/2005. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99
Three great albums from Incognito – served up at a mighty nice price, and with bonus tracks too! Who Needs Love is a gem from over a decade ago – and 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". On Adventures In Black Sunshine, the groove is sweetly soulful, with a jazzy undercurrent that hearkens back to the best west coast soul of the 70s – and Bluey's got the group honed to perfection, playing with a razor-sharp edge that keeps the tunes as funky as they are soulful! Vocals are by Maysa and Tony Momrelle – and tracks include "Don't Turn My Love Away", "This Thing Called Love", "The Principles Of Love", "Everything Your Heart Desires", "Close My Eyes", "25th Chapter", and "Mr Jones". Eleven is a record that's a great testament to Incognito's richly-collaborative spirit – a quality that makes plenty of room here for lead vocals by Maysa Leak, Imaani, and Carleen Anderson – and which benefits strongly from some great keyboard lines by Ski Oakenfull. But as usual, mainman Bluey is the one to thank for the record – because his sense of groove, and love of classic 70s-influenced soul comes through very strongly on all tracks – hitting an on-the-money sound that makes the group, and this latest album, stand head to head with some of the best soul acts of classic years. Another winner from Incognito – not a bit of fluff at all – and a sublime batch of tracks that includes "Jacaranda", "Show Me Love", "We Got Music", "Let The Mystery Be", "Will I Ever Learn", "I'll Get By", "As Long As It's You", and "When Tomorrow Brings You Down". Bonus tracks include the previously-unreleased "To Prove My Love" and "Feel The Real" – plus "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)". CD

✨✧ IncognitoLive In London – The 30th Anniversary Concert (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Inakustik (Germany), 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The 30th Anniversary of Incognito – and the group are still going wonderfully strong! In fact, it could easily be argued that the Incognito here is light years ahead of the way they sounded during their first decade – an instant classic ensemble that never fails to delight our ears – with so many great records under their collective belts, it would be hard for any other group to even come close! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick and crew are clearly invigorated by their success over the years, and really keep things fresh on recent records – and also manage to bring that same spontaneous groove to a live date like this. Titles include "Talkin Loud", "Step Aside", "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing", "Colibri", "Everyday", "Nights Over Egypt", "Can't Get You Out Of My Head", "Deep Waters", "Wild & Peaceful", and "Still A Friend Of Mine".

✨✧ Alphonse MouzonMan Incognito ... CD
Blue Note/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ Maysa LeakBottle/Hooked On Your Love ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), Late 90s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Two great tunes from Maysa – both with a nice Incognito-styled groove! "The Bottle" is a remake of the Gil Scott-Heron groover – done here with a housey finish peppered with warm keyboards and a tasty funky flute! "Hooked On Your Love" has great jazz funk instrumentation – nicely sharp, of the sort that Maysa doesn't get on her records these days – and which really seems to bring out the best in her vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MaysaLove Is A Battlefield ... CD
Shanachie, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
We never thought we'd hear Maysa singing a Pat Benatar song – but as with most of Maysa's music, the results come across surprisingly well! The album's heavy on covers – and also includes songs first made famous by The Isley Brothers, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Jerry Butler, and others – but all done in that warmly glowing sound that's made Maysa so great from her years with Incognito onward – with a rich legacy in quality soul! As with other recent albums from the singer, the production here is nicely understated – maturing with Maysa's talents, and another great showcase for the skills of Chris "Big Dog" Davis. Titles include "Love Is A Battlefield", "Can We Talk", "Inseparable", "Because It's Really Love", "Inside Out", "The Things We Do For Love", "Mr Dream Merchant", and "Am I Dreaming". CD

Joey NegroProduced With Love (with bonus 12 inch single) ... LP
Z Records (UK), 2017. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $33.99
Joey Negro's got a decades-long love of disco – one that began at a time when so many other artists were going for colder, easier ways of serving up a groove – and Joey was a rare talent who could really take things back to the glory days of the clubs! That talent has only gotten greater and greater over the years – through projects done under Negro's own name, his work with the Sunburst Band, and even his unstoppable efforts to work as a dancefloor historian through his Z Records label! All that energy, and more, seems to come to play here – on a set that soars to the skies with the very first note – reminding us that, alongside Bluey from Incognito, Joey's one of the few cats who can get a classic sound completely right, right from the start – but also have a way of sending the music forward for a new generation too! The album's a dream right from the start – with great work from Kaidi Tatham on keyboards on some tracks – and an array of great guest singers young and old, who include Angela Johnson, Donna Gardier, Lifford, Alex Mills, Diane Charlemagne, Melba Moore, and Linda Clifford. Titles include "Must Be The Music (orig disco version)", "Everything", "Into The Blue", "Overnight Sensation", "Won't Let Go", "Anyway", "Prove That You're Feeling Me", "It's More Fun To Compute", "In Search Of The Dream", and "Stomp Your Feet". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition – with bonus 12" that includes "Message In Our Music (Joey Negro rmx)" by The O'Jays and "Spanish Hustle (Joey Negro rmx)" by Fatback Band.)

VariousSoul Survivors – A Dance, Disco, Boogie Jazz, & Fusion Selection ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99
A really wonderful title for this excellent little collection – as the package is overflowing with tremendous work from artists who've really held onto their soulful strengths over the years! Some of the artists are older ones, others are part of the Neo Soul underground of the past decade or two – and together, the tracks are united in a wonderfully positive, wonderfully upbeat groove – of the sort that reminds us why we love soul music in the first place! Titles include "When You Feel What Love Has" by Lenny Fontana with D-Train, "Get Your Head Out The Phone (funky dance mix)" by Bill Curtis & Friends with The Fatback Band, "Whatever It Takes" by Angela Johnson, "Open Sesame" by Beggar & Co, "Don't Hide Your Wings" by Eric Roberson, "Ordinary Day (Scratch Professor retwist" by Omar, "In The Open Space" by Vladimir Cetkar, "Beta Waves" by Nu-Era, "Round & Round (old school mix)" by The Pasadenas, "Don't Go (Shane D's solar club mix)" by DJ Skip with Shalamar, "Heaven (Frankie Valentine rmx)" by MODE with Leroy Burgess, and "Show Me Love (Yam Who rework)" by Incognito with Carleen Anderson.

✨✧ BB Boogie (Daz I Kue)Standing On The Wall ... LP
R2 (UK), 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's been many years since Daz I Kue first rocked our world with his grooves in Bugz In The Attic – and since that time, he's only gotten stronger and more soulful as a solo act – to the point where a new project like this almost blows away some of his previous work! As you might guess from the cover and name, the project has a very vintage feel – somewhere in the territory of late 70s/early 80s clubby funk, with warmer instrumentation than back in the Bugz days – and a fantastic sense of production that could almost have you playing this set alongside later Funkadelic material, or early work from Prince! Yet there's also a sharpness, too – that new vision of funk that's always made the London scene so wonderful – from the Incognito/Brand New Heavies years onward. Khari Simmons plays bass on most of the record – and the bass is definitely in the lead – and singers include Vanessa Freeman, Greg Blackman, Leroy Burgess, DNS, Monica Blaire, Joy Jones, and others – really helping flesh out the sound on tracks that include "Opposition", "Sweating & Shaking", "Wanna Be With You", "We Can Do It", "Standing On The Wall", "In The Middle", "Let Love Grow", "Stay Woke", and "RAyanne".

✨✧ Earl KlughSoda Fountain Shuffle ... LP
Warner, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smooth, soulful work from the great Earl Klugh – a set that's got plenty of electric elements in the rhythms, mixed with lots of acoustic interplay from Earl over the top! Klugh's touch on the strings has only gotten better over the years, and he dances magically amidst some light rhythms and keyboard lines – warming things up a lot more than on similar fusion albums by some of his contemporaries, with that classic Klugh touch that's made him a lasting favorite over the decades! Titles include "Baby Cakes", "Incognito", "One Night", "April Love", "Close To Your Heart"," Just Pretend", and "Rainbow Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Lounge Volume 12 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2015. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest values in contemporary soul music – and a series we can still highly recommend even after the course of eleven previous volumes! The 3CD package is overflowing with great tracks far from the mainstream of soul – the kind of current, underground tracks that you'll hear from only a select few on both sides of the Atlantic – with an especially strong focus on UK soul artists here, given that the Dome Records label puts out some of the best of the London scene! There's plenty here to love – including a number of tracks that haven't been on CD before – and titles include "Sleepwalkers (Opolopo rmx)" by Jarrod Lawson, "Lowdown (Ski Oakenfull rmx)" by Incognito with Mario Biondi & Chaka Khan, "People (DJ Spen & Gary Hudgkins rmx)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Just For One Day" by Imaani, "Music & Its Magical Way" by Jarrod Lawson, "Soul Town (Nigel Lowis rmx)" by Ola Onabule, "Deja Vu" by Angela Johnson, "Bridge Over Troubled Water (acoustic)" by Shaun Escoffery, "Believe Me" by Anthony David, "Ever After (Jiva rmx)" by Seek, "Touch My Body" by Cooly's Hot Box, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Diplomats Of Soul, "Major Bossa" by Khari Cabral Simmons with Sabrina Malheiros, "Change" by Full Flava with Joy Rose, and "Every Time I Turn Around" by Makeda. 40 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousSoul Lounge Volume 13 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2017. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set of contemporary soul tracks – music from both sides of the Atlantic, served up in a well-priced collection that brings together the best of the British and American underground soul scenes! A good deal of the work here is from the catalog of the Dome label in the past decade or so – an imprint who continues to be one of the few stronger indie labels dedicated to discovering and properly presenting the best in soul music – something that's becoming more and more important in recent years, as so many new artists only issue digital releases. This 3CD pacakge is a great reminder of how wonderful it can be to hear tracks like these on a proper CD release – and the whole thing's a treasure trove throughout – with 40 tracks that include "Sky (Ski Oakenfull rmx)" by Bluey, "Spiritual Eyes (Young Pulse & ATN rmx)" by Jarrod Lawson, "Feel Like Dancing" by Heston, "Need You Now" by Avery Sunshine, "Looking For" by Eric Roberson, "You Know Just When" by Dennis Taylor, "Morning Love" by Simon Law, "To Prove My Love" by Incognito, "Hurts Like Hell" by Angela Johnson, "Let's Do It Right" by Imaani, "Something More" by Makeda, "Like Rain" by Greg Dean with Natalie Weiss & Amber Iman, "Never Letting Go" by Frank McComb, "Crazy" by Rahsaan Patterson, "Only Be Me" by Conya Doss, "Surrender" by Seek, "The Real Thing" by Avani, "People Of Tomorrow" by Citrus Sun, and "Take It" by Cooly's Hot Box.

James Day Songs, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The repertoire here is as great as the lineup – positive, upbeat soul songs all written by James Day – and performed with help from a huge cast of talent from the contemporary and classic soul underground – including Maysa, U-Nam, Glenn Jones, Trina Broussard, U-Nam, Donnie, Audrey Wheeler, Tony Terry, Cool Million, Gavin Christopher, and others! Some of these are folks we haven't heard in years – and certainly not in a setting this great – as Day works with U-Nam, who co-produced the set, in a mode that's got the same warm mix of classic and contemporary that you'd find in the best music by Incognito! Titles include "Considered Delivered", "We Dance", "Don't Waste The Pretty", "Dance Again", "Repertoire", "Rewind", and "RSVP". CD

Sweet Soul (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great album from Tristan – a group we only discovered in recent years, thanks to a UK release – and who we're really enjoying on this unusual Japanese-only album! Despite that overseas traffic, Tristan's got a sound that's really rooted in classic American soul – maybe given a slight contemporary update – as in the music of Brand New Heavies or Incognito – with rock-solid funky soul instrumentation from the group, and beautiful lead vocals from Evelyn Kallansee! Heston joins the group on two tracks, Francesco Cottone on two others – and titles include "I'll Be Around", "Admiration", "Feet Back On The Ground", "Let Me Breathe", "Group Up", "Spirit One", "Skip This", and "Love Leads The Way". Japanese pressing features bonus tracks "Supersize My Sunshine (1984 rmx)", "Running (1999 rmx)", and "Take Me To The River (Captain One-eye oldskool mix)". CD

Far Out (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spare grooves from Venom – who you might also know as Daniel Maunick, son of Bluey (Incognito) Maunick – an artist with the same sort of clubby spirit as his father! Under the Dokta Venom mode, Daniel's got a groove that's a bit more mellow – spacey, fuzzy, and with some distortion on the keyboards and the odd vocal traces that filter through the music, but never really form lyrics – almost like some slowed-down, trippier take on an Incognito groove! Titles include "Soul Krush", "I Owe U Something", "See The Sun", and "Mood Swings". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Reel People (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful solo work from Tony Momrelle – a singer you may know from his tremendous contributions to Incognito and Reel People over the years, and a hell of a soul artist on his own! Tony may well be one of the UK's best male soul singers these days – and he steps forth beautifully here on a set of tracks that are couched in all the warm tones of his best work with Incognito, with lots of jazzy touches in the instrumentation, and a rock-solid groove in the rhythms! Momrelle soars out wonderfully on his vocals – with a style that's somewhere in the Stevie Wonder side of the spectrum, but also very much Tony's own, too – instantly classic, on titles that include "It's Real", "Back Together Again", "Pick Me Up", "It's Real", "A Million Ways", "All The Things You Are", "Different Street", and "Keep Pushing", which features a guest appearance by Talib Kweli. Bonus tracks include "Shout It Out", "All I Need", and "Love Me Again". CD

Skytown, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The grooves here go way past the surface level – mighty deep overall, and served up in that fantastic mix of jazzy fusion and club that we love so much from U-Nam! The guitarist just seems to get better and better with each new recording – mixing a 70s style of George Benson soloing with well-crafted rhythms that are never too over the top, and which never force the groove so much that U-Nam can't find space to do his own thing! The style's almost like an instrumental version of Incognito, although with more of a jazzy solo instrumental vibe – and titles include "Back In Style", "Mary Jane", "Groove Paradise", "Going For Miles", "Surface Level", and West Indeed". CD
