IncognitoTransatlantic RPM ... CD
Shanachie, 2010. Used ... $6.99
Hard to believe it's the 30th Anniversary for Incognito – but Bluey's been at it for that long, and to celebrate, he's having one hell of a party with this record! The album's got way more going on than even a regular Incognito set – even though those are plenty darn great – as Bluey's invited plenty of folks along for the celebration, a range of great singers who really open up the sound, and deepen the core jazzy grooves of the set! In addition to regular vocalists like Joy Rose, Tony Momrelle, and Maysa, the set also features work by Leon Ware, Chaka Khan, John-Christian Urich, Ursula Rucker, Vanessa Haynes, and Mario Biondi – the last of whom really brings a lot to the set, with that cool vocal approach used on his Schema albums. And as usual for Bluey, the sound is way more than just straight soul – with plenty of classic jazz funk elements, and a strong nod to the underground sounds of the British scene who've always fostered his music. Titles include "Line In The Sand", "1975", "Your Sun My Sky", "Put A Little Lovin In Your Heart", "All Of My Life", "Expresso Madureira", "Make Room For Love", "Lowdown", "Tell Me What To Do", and "The Winter Of My Springs".

✨✧ Diplomats Of Soul feat Incognito & Vanessa HaynesSweet Power Your Embrace/Mi Sabrina Tequana (My Sister's Daughter) ... 12-inch
Expansion (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite tracks of all time – James Mason's "Sweet Power Your Embrace" – done here in a wonderfully faithful version by Diplomats Of Soul, with help from Incognito and the lovely Vanessa Haynes on vocals – who serves up the lyrics with maybe even more soul than the original! The flipside is equally groovy – a wonderful remake of a James Ingram tune, with soaring keyboards over tight congas and percussion – and a great organ solo in the middle! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ IncognitoTribes, Vibes, & Scribes ... CD
Verve/Suonaphone, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

✨✧ Bluey (Incognito)Life Between The Notes ... CD
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet solo work from Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick – the legendary leader of Incognito, and a driving force in global soul music for the past few decades! The set's a bit more instrumental than Bluey's work with his main group – although Bluey himself sings on a number of tracks, with this great voice that's wonderfully down to earth, and which is perfectly balanced by his super-sharp instrumentation, which has all that classic groove we've always loved from Incognito! Familiar associates like Ski Oakenfull, Richard Bull, and Matt Cooper help Bluey out on the project – but it's clear from the start that the mainman is at the helm all the way through, finding a great solo path of his own. Titles include "Caught Up In The Grey", "Tippin On This Feelin", "Hold On", "Saints & Sinners", "Life Between The Notes", "Tomorrow Never Lies", and "Columbus Avenue". CD

✨✧ IncognitoIncognito Live In London – 35th Anniversary Show ... CD
Ear Music (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
Incognito are a great group in the studio, but they're also a hell of an act live too – thanks to a rock-solid, all-classic presentation to their music – a vintage style of funky soul, which doesn't require any other tricks to make it sparkle! This excellent live set celebrates the group's 35 years in music – but it's every bit as fresh as their best from years back – with razor-sharp instrumentation from the group, led by Bluey – and vocals from guests who include Mario Biondi, Carleen Anderson, and Imaani! Titles include a great remake of "Harvest For The World" – plus "Hats", "Roots", "Rapture", "Still A Friend Of Mine", "Tin Man", "Brazilian Love Affair", "This Is What You Are", "Always There", and "As".

Haggis HornsWhat Comes To Mind ... CD
Haggis (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $13.99
Heavy funk from the Haggis Horns – a group with a gimmicky name, but a rock-solid sound that's made them one of the best contemporary funk combos working in the British Isles these days! The horns are only part of the groove – as the drums and other funky elements really ground the tracks strongly – with a classic vibe that takes us back to our favorite 70s albums by better-known horn groups – like the Memphis or Muscle Shoals Horns! And like the latter, there's also a great vocal component here – something the group has really worked on for this record, and which they introduce with a vibe that's way different than just the usual female singer with a funk band – and instead comes across with a much more integrated style that almost has these guys challenging Incognito for UK funky soul supremacy! Half the cuts feature vocals – by singers John Turrell, John McCallum, and Lucinda Slim – and titles include "Digging In The Dirt", "Keep It Tight", "It Ain't What You Got", "You've Got To Keep On Bumpin", "Give Me Something Better", "I Can't Stop The Feeling", and "Outta My Head".

Earl KlughSoda Fountain Shuffle/Life Stories/Solo Guitar ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Three albums from the late 80s – all of which show Earl Klugh still going strong, and very much at the top of his game! Soda Fountain Shuffle is 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". Life Stories is a huge one from the mighty Earl Klugh – and the kind of record that reminded the world that he was still one of the most unique fusion talents around! Earl's got this perfect way of blending acoustic and electric elements with effortless ease – his own soft string solos and warmer R&B charts – all laid out with this sound that's beyond compare, and which may even work better here than on some of Klugh's records from a few years before. Most tracks are originals – although the album does include a great cover of the Isleys' "For The Love Of You" – alongside titles that include "Return Of The Rainmaker", "The Traveler", "Just For Your Love", "Second Chances", "Debra Anne", and "Santiago Sunset". Solo Guitar is beautiful work from the great Earl Klugh, and a set that's exactly what's promised in the title – a solo guitar outing that shows an entirely new side of Earl's many talents! Klugh's acoustic playing on other albums was always great – but here, it really comes to the forefront, with a sound that's rich enough to sum up so many different modes of guitar expression at once – from gypsy swing phrasing, to Spanish flourishes, to some straighter jazz swing – but always with that warmth that's made Earl way more than just another fusion artist on his instrument. Most tracks are standards, done in nicely personal versions – and titles include "Emily", "Once Upon A Summertime", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "So Many Stars", "Love Is Here To Stay", and "The Way You Look Tonight".

Masters At Work & OthersHouse Masters – Masters At Work Vol 2 (4CD set) ... CD
Defected (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 4CD ... $23.99 25.98
The title definitely gets it right – as the team of Kenny Dope and Louie Vega are certainly masters of house – as you'll hear in this overstuffed 4CD set! The package brings together 40 tracks that really span the gamut of the duo's genius – from their important early house records, their crucial remixes of tracks for others, and their groundbreaking work during their second chapter – when the Masters At Work name helped bridge a space between older funk and soul, and the freshest sounds of the 21st Century! There's a huge amount here to love – and titles include "I Like (MAW main mix)" by Shanice, "Our Time Is Coming" by MAW with Roy Ayers, "Buddy X (Masters At Work dub 1)" by Nenah Cherry, "Always There (MAW main mix)" by Incognito with Jocelyn Brown, "I Feel Love (Masters At Work 86th Street mix)" by Donna Summer, "When You Touch Me (MAW re-edit)" by Taana Gardner, "You Can Do It (Nuyorican style mix)" by Nuyorican Soul with George Benson, "Star Chasers (Nu Yorican dub)" by 4Hero, "Let It Go (Ken Lou mix)" by Black Magic, "Ten Percent (Ken Lou mix)" by Double Exposure, "See Line Woman (MAW rmx)" by Nina Simone, "Truth Don Die (Masters At Work house version main)" by Femi Kuti, and lots lots more!

MaysaBack To Love ... CD
Shanachie, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 18.98
Lovely modern soul from Maysa – one of the most consistently rewarding voices of the past couple decades – whether it's on her always appealing, often overlooked solo efforts, or her work with Incognito! Back 2 Love covers the full spectrum of her talents, from modern takes on classic soul songcraft, easy going jazzy soul, classic disco reverent numbers, and even a couple slow jam duets! It has the feel of a Greatest Hits sets, which is a testament to how strong this record is, from track to track! Her voice is as glorious as ever – on titles that include "Back 2 Love", "Heavenly Voices", "Miracle", "Smilin", "Tear It Up Tear It Down", "Unforgettable", "Beautiful Symphony" and more – including a couple of sweet duets with members of Mint Condition – "Keep It Movin'" with Stokely and "Last Chance For Love" with Phil Perry. Also includes a bonus remix of the title track. CD

VariousSmooth Jazz Journey – Great Ocean Road ... CD
Dome (UK), 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
Don't think "smooth jazz", think more "Neo Soul" – as the set's put together by Neo Soul powerhouse Dome Records – and features some of their own great recordings mixed with hipper electric jazz tracks from some of the more soulful talents of the past decade or so! There's definitely an instrumental focus here – although some cuts have vocals too – and the jazz component is much more skewed towards an older sort of soulful fusion from the 70s, than some of the weaker or clunkier smooth jazz styles from the contemporary charts – a classic vibe that really makes the collection strong. Titles include "A Universal Vibe" by Down To The Bone, "Tonight We Dance" by Citrus Sun, "The Girl From Ipanema" by Brian Bromberg, "Never In Your Sun" by Khari Cabral Simmons with India Arie, "Winelight" by Jason Miles with Gerald Albright, "10 Degrees South" by Jonathan Butler, "The Message" by Brenda Russell, "Full Circle" by Jazz Steppers, "The Stars From Here" by Incognito with Natalie Williams, "Lullabye" by Ray Gaskins with Roy Ayers, "Biyah" by Pat Leacock, "Round The World" by Jackiem Joyner, "The Look Of Love" by Steve Cole, and "If You Really Wanna" by Bluey.

VariousSoul Lounge Vol 12 – 40 Soulful Grooves (3CD box set) ... CD
Dome/Soul Lounge (UK), 2015. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
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!

VariousUltimate Free Soul 90s (3CD set) ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1990s. New Copy 3CD ... $31.99
The Free Soul series takes a massive dip into the 90s – a time when soul music was reborn in so many different ways – from the work of underground singers and hip hop acts, to a wave of bigger talents who started to turn things back to the warmer territory of the 60s and 70s! The collection is a wonderful mix of tracks that really runs the gamut – and includes key 90s material from both UK and US singers, key crossover hip hop cuts, and other important work that helped forge the Neo Soul underground by the end of the decade. Way more than a trip down memory lane, too – as the music works here together to create a new sort of freshness, as great sounds resonate between tracks that include "Runaway" by Nuyorican Soul with India, "Candy Mountain" by Nomad Soul, "I'm Still Waiting" by Courtney Pine with Carroll Thompson, "Give It UP Turn It Loose" by En Vogue, "Brooklyn Queens (UK power mix)" by 3rd Bass, "Cake & Eat It Too (pound cake mix)" by Nice & Smooth, "You Are The Universe" by Brand New Heavies, "There's Nothing Like This" by Omar, "Spiritual Love" by Urban Species, "The Whistle Song" by Frankie Knuckles, "Peachfuzz" by KMD, "Can I Kick It" by Tribe Called Quest, "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" by Incognito, "Escape That (Ron Trent rmx)" by 4Hero, "Columbus (Montezuma jazz mix)" by Chapter & The Verse, "Show You (original finesse)" by Jeff Redd, "Be My Baby" by Vanessa Paradis, "Spiritual Thing" by Eric Benet, "You Gotta Be" by Des'Ree, "Wherever You Go" by Sydney Youngblood, and "Love Theme From Spartacus (4Hero main mix)" by Terry Callier. 53 tracks in all!

✨✧ George BensonThat's Right ... CD
GRP, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Recent work from George Benson – smoother than his classic 60s work, but with a nice soulful groove that's a lean extension of his work in the 70s. And sure, it's a bit smooth jazz – but don't forget that George virtually invented the genre, and hearing his guitar work on the set, it's clear that he's still head and shoulders above most of the folks he inspired. Titles include "True Blue", "Marvin Said", "That's Right", "The Thinker", "Holdin On", "Song For My Brother", and "Footprints In The Sand", produced by Bluey of Incognito! CD

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.

✨✧ PeoSwede Soul Music ... CD
Sundae Soul (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from Peo Dahl – a Swedish musician by birth, as you might guess from the title – but one who comes across with a groove that matches the best hip Anglo soul of the past decade or two! There's a vibe here that reminds us especially of some of our favorite British acts – the jazzy rhythms of Brand New Heavies, and maybe the vocal warmth of Swing Out Sister – with a bit of Incognito thrown in for good measure! Yet the group's definitely got their own sort of special vibe – upbeat, positive sounds served up by Peo and his core instrumental crew – and delivered by a host of singers (mostly gals, one guy) who give the whole album a beautiful glow. The songs are great, production is perfect, and titles include "Another Weekend", "Good Love", "What Goes Up", "Everything", "Get Ready", "Wish I Could", "All Your Love", "Be Mine", and "Must Be Love".

Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The lesser-known third album by Cedar Walton's landmark Eastern Rebellion combo – one of the most important indie soul jazz groups of the late 70s, still going strong on this set! The lineup is still the same as on the second set – with Bob Berg on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and the wonderfully solid team of Billy Higgins and Sam Jones on rhythm. However, the sound here is slightly different – with a more conscious sense of disharmony at times – creating an unsettling edge that replaces the warm, fluid feel of earlier records. The change shows that Walton and the group were still growing and searching – and titles include "Incognito", "Firm Roots", "Seven Minds", and "Never Never Land". CD

A great debut from Imaani – the soulful singer who's made some great music with Incognito in recent years! The cover's got a shoutout from Bluey on the front – but the music has a nicely different vibe than Imaani's music with Incognito, as she works here with studio talent Kevin Leo, whose come up with a great new direction for the singer! Imaani's got a firmer presence than ever before – and the grooves have a great blend of underground soul and contemporary R&B – focused, cut never too commercial – in the best sort of Brit soul mode we've come to expect from the always-great Dome label. Most numbers have lean, tight rhythms that really emphasize the hooks in the tunes – and titles include "Fall Or Fly", "Ten Thousand", "Standing Tall", "Please Let Me In", "Struggling", "Let's Do It Right", "Step Back", and "African Child".

✨✧ Maysa LeakAll My Life (UK pressing) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2000. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

We somehow missed Tristan the first time around – but man, are we more than making up for that now – with loads of love for this incredible second set! Tristan's got this wonderful sense of poise and polish to her music – not slick at all, but just super-tight, with an immediately righteous, positive vibe – at a level that's rare for so many indie soul acts – and which instantly puts Tristan at the level of some of our longtime favorites, like Incognito, Monday Michiru, or Swing Out Sister! The songwriting is great, the vocals are wonderful, and the overall execution has this real love of classic soul, but a style that's always trying to find something new – especially through some jazzy inflections, ala James Mason or someone like that. Titles include "Hey Sister", "Finally Found", "Chainreaction", "Falcon", "Lost", "Morning", "Supersize My Sunshine", and "Tune In". CD

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.
