Synopsis

Product Description
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."

CD Reviews

Transition of Bluey's love for America!
M. Bell | Atlanta, GA | 08/01/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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!"
Once Again Incognito Delivers!!!

"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 always introduced its listeners to different sounds. Every element depicts a journal of music. Transatlantic continues to follow that same path. Incognito definitely brings it to light."
