Incognito, one of the UK’s favourite soul/funk/jazz bands, have just released their new album ‘Surreal’ on Dome Records and will now play London’s Islington Assembly Hall on May 24th and 25th. Special guest on the dates is Mario Biondi and the band will also be joined by two outstanding new vocalists in Natalie Williams, a UK jazz scene luminary, and 26-year-old German-born singer-songwriter Mo Brandis.
Incognito was formed in 1979 by Mauritius-born Jean-Paul Maunick, known to all since childhood as Bluey. Along the way Incognito have had hit singles – ‘Always There’ and ‘Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing’ were two of the biggest and have performed at all the major festivals from Montreux to Monterey to North Sea Jazz and since 2007 alone, have performed in more than 30 countries. Bluey prides himself on running probably the most multi-cultural band in Britain and has used more than 1000 different musicians and vocalists during Incognito’s 30-year career, the line-ups varying from eight-piece to 14-piece and more.
