    I just got my first Incognito cd, their Best of disc. The bass playing is fantastic, but the bassists aren't listed! Who in the world were/are these guys? The bass lines groove like tomorrow just ain't comin'!

    Richard Bailey is the drummer, and has been for awhile. The new guy, I forgot his name... Randy Hope-Taylor was playing bass, and they both played with Jeff Beck.

    Some of their best tracks have Julian Crampton playing bass - very funky!!

    Who played bass on "Still a Friend of Mine?" I learned that line last night and it absolutely kills.

    And which albums did Julian Crampton play on, please?

    There is an official Incognito website that has a lot of Julian Crampton bass transcriptions !! :)


    My favourite album where he plays is 100° and Rising (1995).

    Great stuff. SAFOM is a greta groove.

    Welcome to the Incognito club! :)

    Do yourself a BIG favour and get yourself the 1996 Live in Tokyo album - absolutely stunning with some stellar bass performances IMHO.

    Also, there is a live DVD available which was recorded at their North Sea Jazz gig (in 2001 I think) and which features Mr Crampton on bass.

    Marvellous stuff. ;) ;)
  8. hey, i just "recieved" a few songs from a "friend" who "lives" in switzerland, they're pretty good! well, okay, the vocals are irritating :p but the basswork is very nice! thanks for posting about them :)

    Does anybody know which album has Gavin Harrison drumming on it? Very curious to hear that.
  10. Lackey:

    According to Google ( ;) ), Inside Life is the album, from 1991.

    I believe bassplayer from Incognito also plays in Down To The Bone - smooth jazz/funk band.
  12. Yep, that's Julian Crampton.

    I think they had an album called Cellar Funk?

    well, here's an update on one of incognito's bassplayers...

    Randy Hope-Taylor has quit playing bass professionally. He's a born again christian and is currently driving a bus in London.

    A most extreme change, but if he's happy.... :)

    Does anyone know how they got the bass tone from the track magnetic ocean. The lowend is so powerfull, tight and fat.

    It's a programed bass line played on keyboard.

    Randy Hope-Taylor is out of retirement and playing with an awesome band called The Allstars Collective.

    They've just released an album of original material produced by Hamish Stuart with the title track (All About The Music) sung by none other than JOCELYN BROWN. I bought it on CDBaby and it's really great - jazz guitar legend Jim Mullen is on there too as well as drum monster Mark Mondesir!

    They have a myspace http://www.myspace.com/theallstarscollective where you can check out their stuff.
