As it is with other artists who have blessed us with their talent for decades
--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.

If you are a true Incognito Fan, had a dream of being a fan, know someone who is a fan, or in my case, heard their music played one day on the Comcast all music station and was immediately hooked...started buying everything by them his budget would allow and then some; this is the DVD that ties them all together. From a musician's standpoint, these guys (and girls) are great. From viewing it, I would say that in a recording environment, anyone on the stage could hold their own at their own venue. It's a close call as to who has the baddest horn section when I think of my two favorite bands being Earth,Wind & Fire and the Mighty Chicago, but from the start of the show until the end, Incognito's Horn Section, kicks it out. Case in point, my 14 year old even watched it on her own and came back with that question on the horn section. My compliments to Bluey, who stay's to the side and does what he does "play" and allows his singers to showcase what they do. In wrapping this up, Bluey proves that music is truly a universal language. The proof is when he introduces the Incognito Band. He calls them the United Nations of Musicians. They are from all parts of the globe. On that stage they are One Nation. This DVD is the one that ties your CD collection together and a must have for your overall Incognito collection.

Can't go wrong with this talented group of individuals. Where are the new upcoming bands? New groups today lack this.

I've been a huge Incognito fan for a very long time. Just recalling the parade of female vocalists over the years is nothing short of amazing. I experienced them live at the San Francisco Fillmore back in the 90s and I'll never forget the joy. My body remembers! This DVD captures the flavor of their irresistible energy--a bit more subdued than they were at the Fillmore, but beautifully tight and inspired. Tony Momrelle is a perfect addition to the group. Don't miss this treat.
