--Al Jarreau and Stevie Wonder come to mind -- there will always be
flailing of arms, gnashing of teeth, and great cries of anguish concerning
Incognito's song selections. When the GE holographic discs
arrive containing every song ever recorded, that complaint will be valid, I guess.
But these selections on this two hour performance are STELLAR. The
passion is there. The love is there. The musicianship? Slam dunk. It is as good
as a live performance gets.
If you know these songs, you'll see what I'm saying is true. If you don't know
the songs, take heart in the fact that Bluey (et al) produced the DVD true to
the original studio performances.
I've been struggling with how to characterize this band for many years for
people who do not know it. Pop? Yes. Soul? Uh-huh. Jazz? Yup.
Funk? Decidedly. Acid Jazz? Probably, but no one knows that term.
The only reasonable direct comparison is with super groups of the 1970's
like Earth, Wind, & Fire, Sly & Family Stone, and/or Parliament-Funkadelic,
yet updated to the 21st century. Several places Mr. Hylton is popping and
thumping a-la Larry Graham. The horns have the precise stabbing bite of
EW&F's, or "on the one" tightness of the JB Horns (James Brown) yet
retain the sweet melody of Chicago's brass. Richard Bailey is all over the drums;
I thought they'd employed a percussion man as well -- but NO! Bluey is
fingering away on the E-drum machine in addition to having fun on his new Strat.Read more ›
