Incognito Who Needs Love

Perennial jazz-funk pioneers Incognito show they're still full of life with this offering for the symmetrical Dome imprint. As expected, jaw-dropping instrumentation is high on the menu. "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" has nothing to do with an evergreen, large-buttocked Australian popstress-it's a strolling, needy, lovesick vocal escapade with gliding orchestral strings and a soul-steeped guitar. "Fly" spreads its wings and ascends heavenward, thanks to visionary keys, a flourishing sax and hip-swinging guitar. It's a shame there aren't many instrumentals here, as the impact of Incognito's music is at times watered down by uncommitted vocals.
