Incognito are widely regarded as one of the pioneers of the English acid jazz movement thanks to hits such as Always There. Formed in 1979 by Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick and Paul ‘Tubbs’ Williams, they’re here to celebrate 40 years of positive vibes and undiluted jazz-funk The enduring success of Incognito is one of the great stories of UK music during the last four decades, and we welcome the shining stars of acid jazz, soul and funk back to Sacramento for another night of dancefloor-friendly new material and choice cuts. Look at the recent history of soulful UK artists and you will find any number of short-lived acts that have achieved pop success. Narrow it down to those that have created a uniquely British sound and have endured as a global phenomenon on their own terms, and the list becomes short. Dues, then, to Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick and Incognito, who formed in 1979 and have been wowing audience around the world ever since.

The subtle craft of the albums is one thing, the showmanship you can see on YouTube footage another, but nothing quite prepares you for the total musical commitment of this outfit. On a long ,long tour they could easily get jaded but they look after themselves and keep everything fresh. Ive not heard stratospheric female vocals (Vanessa Haynes ) or drum/percussion soloing so musical since Rufus and Earth Wind and Fire, and these guys are every bit their equal. And personable and unpretentious with it -bloody marvelous.
