以来、グループ名義の「ポジティビティ」、「ワン・ハンドレッド&ライジング」などのヒット作で世界にアピールする間、リード・ボーカルのメイザ・リークが'95年にソロ・デビューし、ベーシストのランディ・ホープ・テイラーはワールド・ワイドな活躍を開始。 さらにプロデュースの手腕を買われたモニックは、ジョージ・ベンソンやドナルド・バードらのベテランをはじめ、マキシ・プリーストやクレモンティーヌらを後押ししてきた。


"Incognito is a British acid jazz band.[1] Their debut album, Jazz Funk, was released in 1981, with 16 more albums following, the latest of which, In Search of Better Days, was released in June 2016.

The band's frontman, composer, record producer, guitarist and singer is Jean-Paul 'Bluey' Maunick. Other notable band members include or have included the singers Linda Muriel, Jocelyn Brown, Maysa Leak, Tony Momrelle, Imaani, Vanessa Haynes, Mo Brandis, Natalie Williams, Carleen Anderson, Pamela (PY) Anderson Kelli Sae (of Count Basic) and Joy Malcom.
Incognito was founded by Paul "Tubbs" Williams & Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick in 1979 as an offshoot from Light of the World. LotW was a substantially sized group and following various changes to the line up, the founding members Breeze Mckrieth, Kenny Wellington & David Baptiste, inspired by American Funk bands such as Funkadelic forming offshoot bands (Parliament), formed Beggar & Co. Bluey & Tubbs went on to form Incognito. However, there has seen a re-connection over the years in LotW with various former members, alongside their other commitments.

Incognito has had intermittent success in the UK Singles Chart, with their breakthrough 1991 hit a cover version of the Ronnie Laws tune "Always There", featuring Jocelyn Brown, which made No. 6 in the UK.[1] The group's 1992 single, "Don't you worry 'bout a thing" saw similar success, reaching No. 19 in the UK.[1] They have also been a favourite of various re-mixers, including Masters at Work, David Morales, Roger Sanchez and Jazzanova, and have released several albums consisting almost entirely of remixes.


Such a good feeling
That's where I want to be (Yeah)
Locked in your prison
Of total ecstasy (All right, all right)
You're so strong and you're so together (Baby)
Next you there is nothing better

Always there (To please you)
Always there (When I need you)
Always there (To love you)
Always there (Thinkin' of you)

And if you want to
If you want to do it to

There's nothing better than being here with you
'Cause your love is a precious treasure (Baby)
Only you can bring me joy and pleasure


Always there
Gotta be there baby
