Editorial Reviews

Incognito is recognized as one of the best funk/jazz/soul/dance outfits in the world. A pioneer of the "acid jazz" movement who has delighted listeners and dancers for decades, Incognito has 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 worldwide in the process.

Transatlantic RPM features some very special guests including Chaka Khan (on two tracks), Mario Biondi, the legendary Leon Ware, Al McKay of Earth Wind & Fire, Christian Urich of Tortured Soul, Ursula Rucker, and Los Angeles rapper Luckyiam. Also featured is a rare lead vocal performance from Bluey, who closes the album with "Tell Me What To Do."

At first listen this recording slams down the funk. It gives a fresh approach with some younger talent (and I'm sure they learned a lot) without much compromise. Being from Philly it was nice to see Ursula Rucker get some play. This CD still carries the unmistakeable Incognito sound. Early reservations quickly become obsolete once you hear the song "1975" where Joy Rose "turn(s) it out". Another highlight is hearing Chaka Khan on, "The Song", sound like shes back with Rufus or even on her solos "Naughty" or "What Cha' Gonna Do For Me". Combined with guitar work by Larry Dunn and its so engaging it draws you to a tear. Maysa is, well, Maysa. Enough said. Tony Momrelle and Vanessa Haynes sound good and bring the energy. Leon Ware also sounds good. Mario Biondi is impressive in the song, "Can't Get Enough". Once again there's that Joy Rose in the song, "All Of My Life". Absolutely awesome!!! Then of course there's Bluey bringing some vocals which you rarely here. And it works well. Hey. There's not a bad song on this cd. After the first two songs, which still aren't bad, you can jus let it play. Musically this recording is top notch. I love the change-ups in the songs. Don't sleep this. There's NOTHING out there better. NOTHING!!!

Incognito has become what Earth, Wind & Fire used to be, a musical experience. "Bluey" gets to cook with the likes of Maysa, Chaka Khan, Leon Ware, Ursula Rucker, Mario Biondi and an assortment of others(Vanessa Haynes, Tony Momrelle & Joy Rose) he has kept in his ensemble. 5 stars is not enough for this outing. I absolutely love the flow of horns,strings,drums and REAL voices on my commute to and from work. Thanks "Bluey" & Co. You did it again!

Everything about this group is a joy—the personalities behind the talent, the warm stage presence, towering vocals, masterful instrumentalism, and the song writing and arrangements. Watch one of their DVD performances, or concert material on the web (e.g., Lugano Jazz Festival), to get a sense of the showmanship and rapport with their audience. The group is very prolific, and some of their albums are more exceptional than others, but it would be difficult to identify the creme de la crème reading amazon reviews because the writers never pass up the opportunity, regardless of CD reviewed, to exhort that THIS album is the group’s best ever. So I’ll try to avoid the hyperbole and just say that Transatlantic RPM represents some of the group’s most exceptional work and for a number of reasons. Chief among them, the song writing is an embarrassment of riches with so many astounding sounds that the album demands to be heard. The arrangements—by Bluey, Matt Cooper, and a number of other band members—are as good as it gets in this genre. And the vocal ensemble is spectacular; everyone shines on this project, including impressive guest vocalists, but listen for Tony Momrelle in particular. Call it funk, soulful electronica, or just plain acid jazz, it’s an astonishing collection of inspired music--sounds that just keep coming at you, a relentless pursuit of your musical soul, song after song. It's celebratory and triumphant in so many ways. That Incognito should create sonic delights, after thirty years in the biz, that transcend even some of their best previous music produces a brilliant harvest for the group’s fans or anyone fortunate enough to listen to this CD. Buy it and enjoy the bounty!

My love affair with the band began with "No Time Since the Future" and I have purchased each successive album since that one. However, I have yet to find the subsequent releases to come to the level of the first...until now.

"Transatlantic RPM" is a musical triumph for the group, paying homage to hits of others with intriguing reworkings along with the unique style that is the trademark of Incognito.

The album is chock full of winners but, surprisingly, the best track is a cover of Boz Scagg's 70's hit "Lowdown," this time featuring the incomparable Chaka Khan on lead vocals.

That track alone makes this a must-have for fans of the band or just fans of GOOD music!

Producer/songwriter/musician Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick has kept UK acid jazz alive since the 1981 release of Jazz Funk, nearly thirty years ago this year. Over the years, a parade of voices have journeyed through Maunick's jazzier brand of soul, dance, and funk, a few even emerging as esteemed solo artists in their own right, including Kelli Sae, Chris Ballin, Jocelyn Brown, and most notably, Maysa Leak. Seemingly dozens more have come and gone. Despite 23 albums (including remixes and live recordings) of unparalleled instrumental grooves, Incognito is probably best known the world over for these vocalists and their five-album winning streak of brilliance that began with a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry ‘Bout A Thang" and closed with the sultry "Centre of the Sun." Tribes Vibes + Scribes, Positivity, 100 Degrees and Rising, Beneath The Surface, and No Time Like The Future delivered chic lounge and dance floor hits like "Always There," "Still A Friend of Mine," "I Hear Your Name," "Shade of Blue," "Get Into My Groove," and "Deep Waters," with a sound that soon became a fixed part of the urban sophisticate lifestyle. The ensuing years since those halcyon days have been a mixed bag of occasionally captivating, if often regurgitated, nu-disco sounds and fleeting moments of genius (a stripped down album of covers and Incognito classics, Bees + Things + Flowers, certainly lands in the Einstein column). So, it's not without some hesitancy that one approaches Transatlantic RPM, the 30th anniversary project of this iconic group, wanting it to reach over the band's latter-day unevenness to their glory days of old.Read more ›
