INCOGNITO :: SURREAL
This is why I do HTS blog. I like to share music that might of slipped through the cracks, or turning you on to something new.
This album in particular being from Incognito, "Surreal". Grown folk music right here. Support the artist. It's time to start returning the favor, and spend a dollar for a digital copy.
Incognito is recognized as one of the best Funk/Jazz/Soul outfits in the world, a pioneer of the Acid Jazz movement who has delighted listeners and dancers for decades, scoring 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.
Surreal is Incognito's look into the future, featuring two of the brightest young stars on the British Soul scene, Mo Brandis, who is being hailed as England's John Legend, and soul diva Natalie Williams of whom Time Out writes "One of the UK's hottest singers. She effortlessly moves from soul diva to sensual and sophisticated jazz." Long time Incognito lead singer, the incomparable Maysa, is also featured on this brilliant set of 12 Bluey Maunick originals.
