Legendary group Incognito will release Into You on October 20, 2023. Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick pioneered the ‘acid jazz’ movement and laid down the blueprint for the neo-soul scene to follow. Incognito managed to craft a distinctive sound and groove all their own. Their captivating melodies and stories endeared them to fans across the globe.
A time when drum machines and sampling dominated the airwaves, Bluey and Incognito reminded us of the sheer beauty of the human soul and instrumental virtuosity. They scored hits with versions of Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing” and Ronnie Laws’ “Always There,” selling more than a million records in the process!
As Bluey and Incognito mark their 44th Anniversary this year, there is no doubt they have helped to uplift our human condition. Bluey, who has collaborated with a who’s who list in music including James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan and Leon Ware, states, “I have always made music that reflects my journey and influences. I am pleased to be releasing yet another Incognito album for Shanachie. I’ve had a smile on my face throughout this writing and recording process of Into You! Musically and creatively, it’s been a joyful journey.”
At a time when the world is so divided it is nice to know that music is still one of the few things people can agree on and that has the power to unite us. Bluey concludes, “I’m a man on a mission and music is my only weapon.”
