Product Description

Transatlantic RPM is a stunning album from Incognito, the UK's leading jazz-funk-soul band, to celebrate their 30th anniversary with help from an array of special guests.

Opening track "Lowdown" revisits the Boz Scaggs hit with stand-out vocals from Chaka Khan and Mario Biondi, while Leon Ware sings the string-laden ballad "Line in the Sand". Joy Rose sings "1975", the story of Bluey's introduction to jazz and soul music, and Christian Urich of Tortured Soul takes things in a soulful house direction on "Let's Fall In Love Again". Instrumental "Expresso Madureira" was originally recorded by Brazilian group Banda Black Rio, and Bluey himself closes the album with a rare lead vocal on "Tell Me What To Do".

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning soulful jazz funk 23 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
Incognito have been churning out album after album of high quality music for 3 decades now, which is some feat.

Given that the material rarely strays from the upbeat jazz funk winning formula, even the most avid fan must occasionally grow a little tired of the sound. I personally did not buy Tales From The Beach for that reason. But the appearance of Chaka Khan, Leon Ware et al intrigued me so I decided to order this album.

Well to say it is a revelation is an understatement. For me, this is Incognito's strongest collection of tunes for a long, long time - possibly since the awesome 100 Degrees and Rising. Equally as important, is that the guest appearances and supreme production give the music a freshness that was undoubtedly needed. Each guest appearance is treated with the respect it deserves - Chaka Khan's vocals are an immediate hit, whereas Leon Ware's contribution is equally strong albeit a slightly slower-burn.

As you would expect, the biggest winners are the four-to-the-floor stompers; 1975, Put a Little Loving, Let's Fall in Love Again; Lowdown; Expresso Madureira; but to be honest there's only one or two slightly under par tracks, and even these are growers.

This is a stunning album of high quality music; it probably won't get any mainstream recognition, but perhaps that's a good thing as it allows quality bands like Incognito to keep on writing and producing music, rather than get side-tracked by the unnecessary media distractions of the popular music world. Jay Kay could take note!

Another cracking CD from Incognito,with guests such as Chaka Khan. Love the version of Boz Scagg's Lowdown, and I have listened to 1975 time and time again. Its very very catchy. Love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atlantic Soul 4 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is 30 years since I last bought an Icognito record, their music has matured and now sounds like its from across the Atlantic, with help from Chaka Khan and Leon Ware to give it that authentic vibe. Best track has to be: Lowdown featuring Mario Biondi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incognito shine again. 4 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a great album, possibly their best. Talent shown on this album is superb with various special guests such as Chaka Khan. Personal favourite track is "Let's Fall in Love Again" featuring Christian Urich of Tortured Soul, whose albums you will love if you like Incognito.

However closely followed by "Lowdown", "1975" and "The Song".

Overall a superb album. A must buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Return to Form. 19 Mar 2011
By Bruce TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Those who are interested in Funk bass will have noticed that Stuart Zender (ex Jamiroquai) plays on 2 tracks of this album - but all the tracks have incredibly tight grooves - it's a masterclass in sophisticated groove-based music - ranging through funk, R&B (both types),Jazz, Soul and much more.

It starts with a fantastically sophisticated, yet simple version of Boz Scaggs "Low Down" - which has a great feel from Zender and wonderfully tight horn stabs. You are drawn straight away, into the atmosphere of the title - a meeting of European invention and slick American production. This album sounds a lot better than recent Incognito albums and it's a case of "no expense spared"!

I'm not sure this is the best Incognito album ever - my favourite is still 100º And Rising and this doesn't have as many catchy tunes as some of their albums. But it is like a summary of Incognito's career to date with the added bonus of some stellar guest artists like Chaka Khan.

My personal favourite is 1975 - which lists Bluey's influences in Soul/Funk from that era. He namechecks Herbie Hancock guesting on Stevie Wonder's Songs In The Key Of Life and this is the basis/beginning of Incognito's whole sound. So in this album we get Jazz ePiano, very much like Herbie and Jazzy solos over funk beats.

It's that meeting of Jazz sophistication/ chord sequences over funky grooves, with sweet soul vocals, that define their sound and this recording is a great introduction for anybody who has missed this great band over the last few decades.It's a great CD to put in the car on a sunny day and let the grooves transport you! Highly recommended!

Format:Audio CD
Incognito seem to have mastered the elusive art of producing consistently high standards of albums and 30 years on from their first release they are still at the top of their game.

If you have enjoyed any Incognito album over the years then all of the elements you may have savoured are here and still sounding fresh and innovative. Every track is superb, the production is smooth and seamless as always and the cast Bluey has put together for this album is fantastic.

From the very first play each track sounds familiar yet new and this album will not spend too much time outside of your cd (or mp3) player. It is without a doubt one of their finest collections to date.

Thanks Bluey!!!!!
