Incognito - biografia e discografia



Incognito, Maysa Leak a sinistraGli Incognito, sono stati tra i primi ad entrare nel mondo dell'acid jazz. Esattamente nel 1981, con il loro primo album: "jazz funk" Quasi interamente strumentale. Il suo leader, Jean Paul Maunick detto "Bluey" è inglese, ma originario delle mauritius. Servendosi poi più tardi della splendida voce di Maysa Leak, ha creato inconsapevolmente, un genere che prendeva jazz e funk e gli dava delle atmosfere acide e uniche. Solo una decina d'anniIncognito al completo dopo, si sarebbe chiamato acid jazz appunto. Dopo l'esordio seguì un lungo periodo di silenzio, fino al 1991, quando prepotentemente tornarono con "Inside life". Ma la consacrazione vera avvenne con l'album seguente "tribes vibes andscribes" del 1992, dove si trova una versione rivista e reintepretata meravigliosamente di: "Don't you worry bout a thing", di Steave Wonder, ma cantata da molti. Nel 1993 raggiungono il meglio con "Positivity", un album da avere! Negli album seguenti Maunick si è poi avvicinato ad un genere un pò più dance ma sempre infuso di ritmi anni settanta, vero paradiso di melodie.
