IncognitoAmplified Soul ... CD CD format
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

Alphonse MouzonMan Incognito ... LP LP format
Blue Note, 1975. Sealed ... $9.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Expansion (UK), 1976/2008. New Copy ... $4.99
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

Expansion (UK), 1983/2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A soulful fusion classic – served up here in two great versions! Tom Browne's original "Brighter Tomorrow" sports some great lead vocals from Carol Woods – who really dominates the tune in a nice way, before Tom gets a chance to serve up a spacey trumpet solo in the middle! Great vocals come back on the flipside by the Diplomats of Soul – thanks to lead lyrics from Imaani, singing over grooves from Incognito! 12-inch, Vinyl record

AzymuthAurora – Remixes & Originals ... CD CD format
Far Out (UK), 2011/2013. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
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)".

Mario BiondiSun ... CD CD format
Sony, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 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".

Khari CabralClementine Sun ... CD CD format
Solunari, 2012. Used ... $7.99
A wonderful record from Khari of Jiva – a set that's as warmly beautiful as you'd expect from the cover! Khari's got all the sweet, soulful touches we love in his music with Jiva – and the set's also got the Brazilian jazz elements that you'd expect from the Antonio Carlos Jobim homage on the cover – particularly the CTI-era Jobim, as there's some wonderful production to the set – and a vibe that's jazzier overall, and more sophisticated than even the great grooves of Jiva! Khari's got plenty of great guests, too – including India Arie, Russell Gunn, Monday Michiru, Sabrina Malheiros, and Incognito – all a perfect choice for the warm, sunny groove of the set! The whole thing's wonderful – maybe even the best thing so far from Khari – and titles include "Clementine Sun", "Coolamon Waltz", "Never In Your Sun", "Belle Of Byron Bay", "The Dove", "Ninos", "How Can We Go Wrong", and "Major Bossa".

Dokta VenomBurnt Roses EP ... 12-inch 12-Inch
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $6.99
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

Friends From RioFriends From Rio 2014 ... CD CD format
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
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", "Aguai", "Casino Bangu", "Batucada Bidu", "Anthemia", "Leita De Pedra", and "Mulher Malagueta". CD

Victor HaynesMy Time Is Here ... CD CD format
Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
Victor Haynes' time has been here for a few years now – as he's really be serving up some great music over the past few releases – but this album's definitely got a positive, confident feel that really lives up to its title – jazzy, upbeat, and rock-solid all the way through! The record's a great example of underground soul that's tight, but very far from commercial – put together with all the classic elements of an old school record, but done with an indie vibe that's nice and lean – and which is very well suited to Victor's vocals and lyrics. There's a jazzy undercurrent throughout – almost a bit of an Incognito vibe, and we mean that in the best way possible – and titles include "Feel", "Sleep Over", "Serious", "Get Back", "My Time Is Here", "Love Will Conquer All", and "Give Me The Reason".

Mighty FireNo Time For Masquerading/Mighty Fire ... CD CD format
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1981/1982. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

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

Expansion (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
The first we've heard from this UK group – but given the strength of the record, we're betting we'll be digging them for many years to come! 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".

Wicked guitar work from U-Nam – a contemporary musician, but one who's drank deeply of the best vintage modes from CTI and Kudu Records – and who is one of the few who can really get such a classic sound just right! This album's got all the sharp edges of a 70s funky fusion set by George Benson or Eric Gale – with tight, thoughtful solos from U-Nam out in the lead – supported by soul-drenched rhythms that really make the whole thing move – deep sounds that almost have the feel of Incognito in an instrumental mode – all arranged and produced by the leader himself. Easily the best record so far from this modern funky jazz giant – with titles that include "Throwback Kid", "Smoovin", "C'Est Le Funk", "Starlight Lover", "City Lights", and "Just Like That". CD

Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
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 Oneness Of JujuAfrican Rhythms ... LP LP format
Black Fire, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

A mellow soul killer from Dira J Sugandi – working here with production from Bluey, and help from the rest of the Incognito crew! In a way, the album's almost an Incognito record at heart – yet Dira's vocals and overall approach really help give it a fresh feel too – a mode that stays away from some of the upbeat groovers you might normally get from Incognito, with a stronger focus on mellow tracks and laidback numbers that really show off her vocals! Other guests on the record include Omar, Ski Oakenful, and Matt Cooper – and titles include "Get Through To You", "Let's Go Back", "Inside Love", "Time Out Of Time", "Bring It On", "Essentially Yours", "Won't You Come With Me", "No More Tears", and "Daydream".

Far Out (UK), 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful grooves from Alex Malheiros – best known for his bass work in Azymuth, but stepping out here in a warm and wonderful set of his own! The groove here really takes us back to the sunny, soulful fusion we first loved when Azymuth hit the scene in the 70s – and Malheiros' guidance of the groove is really felt strongly in the album's warm-rolling basslines – a beautiful complement to a lineup that also includes Fender Rhodes, tenor, soprano sax, flute, trumpet, and trombone – plus a bit of occasional vocals from Sabrina Malheiros! Production is wonderful – handled by Daniel Maunick with some of the warmth of his Incognito work – and IG Culture comes in at the end to remix four of the album's tracks – almost creating a mini-modern suite to complement to the core 70s vibe of the record. Titles include "The Wave", "Corpo", "Copa A Noite", "Solar", "Sem Pressa", "Baixo Partido", "Serenity", "Uno Esta", and "4 Eyed Viper" – plus remixes of "The Wave" and "Uno Esta", the latter of which is a version of the Bobbi Humphrey classic!

Dome (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

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".

It's like a Christmas wish come true – a fantastic album of Holiday music, all sung by the soulful Maysa Leak! We've loved Maysa's vocals for years – from her work in Incognito to her long run of solo albums – but she grabs us all over again with the style of this set – a really fresh variation on her excellent sound, with a righteous undercurrent that definitely comes from the spirit of the season! Production is still contemporary and soul-based – done by Chris "Big Dog" Davis, in the spirit of Maysa's other recent records – but the shift in material seems to open up a whole new side of the singer – on titles that include "Pray For Peace", "Jingle Bells", "Joy To The World", "It's The Holidays", and "Christmas Time Is Here". Album also features guest appearances – with Will Downing on "This Christmas", and Gerald Albright on "Silver Bells". CD
