Incognito- new to me!

These guys are great. Solid, fun live show... drummer and bassist are great. I like the bassists musical judgement and execution. Never heard of them until I found them mentioned in a Craigslist ad (granted, I mainly listen to modern metal).

I love Incognito, heck I love acid jazz... check out the Brand New Heavies, since you've obviously heard of Jamiroquai. I only heard of Incognito last year myself.

I am digging the Brand New Heavies. I like this sound overall... a little retro and jazzy.

Check out Corduroy's first album, "Dad Man Cat" - some really nice bass playing on that.

Incognito is a lesson in groovin and lockin down. I find it similar to the old Bernard Edwards/Chic thing as far as bass groove/discipline goes. I haven't kept up with the last few discs but the older stuff was goin to school.

Do a youtube search. There is a full length anniversary concert that has almost everyone who's ever been in the band. Check it out if you can.

My all time favorite is their first album. Only 3 vocal tracks, the rest is instrumental, some of the best bass grooves I've ever heard.
The band seems to be kinda unknown in the US, I'm surprised some say they only heard of them recently.
Shame RHT doesn't do much these days.

The bass on the first album is actually by Paul 'Tubbs' Williams, an absolute monster. He was like 19 or something at the time as well.

Incognito - Sunburn (1981)

My bad, I meant "Tribes, Vibes, Scribes" with RHT (incl. "Colibri", "Change" & "I love what you do for me").
For some reason I was under the impression it was their first album.
Anyway, great stuff.

Then there is 'Inside life' with Randy as well.
I think that's the second one. No?

There are more really good players involved though, that I think deserve a mention...Julian Crampton being one of them.

I'm a fan.... I don't know who really played what or when, since they appear to have had a long list of changing personnel, but I usually dig it. I tend like the instrumental, more jazzy tracks in the catalog.

I got into them from hearing a couple of tunes on the Weather Channel, of all things.

If you can find it you should also check out "Jazz in the present tense" by Solsonics

Other worth listening is Galliano, The New Matersounds, and Quantic
