ICOGNITO - The enduring success of Incognito is one of the great stories of UK music during the last four decades. Look at the recent history of soulful UK artists and you will find any number of short-lived acts that have achieved pop success. Narrow it down to those that have created a uniquely British sound and have endured as a global phenomenon on their own terms, and the list becomes short. Dues, then, to Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick and Incognito, formed in 1979 and celebrating 39 years of positive vibes and undiluted Jazz-Funk in 2018.
Now 39 years on, the Bluey and Incognito story remains a uniquely Great British adventure. From Top 10 hits to producing and collaborating with legendary artists - from R&B icons and powerhouse vocalists to contemporary jazz musicians to international multi-instrumentalists and songwriters, including George Benson, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Philip Bailey, Jocelyn Brown, George Duke, Al Jarreau, Marcus Miller, Paul Weller, Maxi Priest, Mario Biondi and tonight's vocal superstar, Maysa who has been associated with the group for multiple tours and albums- Bluey Maunick can take his place among the greats of global soul.
MAYSA - After celebrating her 26th year as a solo artist, Maysa kicks off the summer with her new album, LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD, a hand picked collection of Maysa's favorite songs, redone with her own unique soulful twist, solidifying her as the greatest Soul-Jazz singer of her generation-the latest in a distinguished line of singers.It was during an over-the-telephone audition in the early 1990s that Maysa become a member of the British jazz/funk/R&B band Incognito and, in 1992, she relocated to London and recorded Tribes, Vibes & Scribes, featuring the hit single "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing". Since then, Maysa has appeared on over seven Incognito recordings.
DOWN TO THE BONE - Down To The Bone is Stuart Wade as producer, writer and mastermind behind the whole groove project, working with other talented musicians and co-writers to bring together a project of good grooves.
