About This Act :
An acid jazz project with surprisingly deep roots in the 1970s jazz/funk/fusion world, Incognito was originally formed by Jean-Paul Maunick (aka Bluey) and Paul \”Tubbs\” Williams. Both were leaders of the late-\’70s disco-funk group Light of the World, who scored several moderate British hits, including a cover of \”I Shot the Sheriff.\” Just after the release of Light of the World\’s third LP (Check Us Out), Maunick and Williams shifted the lineup slightly and renamed the conglomeration Incognito. The 1991 single \”Always There\” (with vocals by Jocelyn Brown) became a Top Ten hit as part of Britain\’s booming acid jazz scene, prompting the release of Incognito\’s second album overall, Inside Life. A cover of Stevie Wonder\’s \”Don\’t You Worry \’Bout a Thing\” became another Incognito hit, and the album ascended Britain\’s pop charts even as it rose on America\’s contemporary jazz charts. The third album, Positivity, became the group\’s biggest album success, with much attention across Europe as well as Britain. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
