A stunning side project First Protocol from Incognito leader Bluey and guitarist Tony Remy, continuing the Incognito tradition of seamlessly blending jazz and house.
Ten cool instrumental tracks featuring guests including Amp Fiddler on keyboards, one-time Incognito keyboard player Graham Harvey, the band’s regular bass player Francis Hylton, and Bluey’s long-time collaborator Ski Oakenfull handling drum and percussion programming on several of the tracks.
Album opener “Beyond Jupiter” features the jazz funk duelling guitars of Bluey and Tony Remy, several Ski Oakenfull tracks have electronica stylings, and another highlight is the breakbeat cut “The Box” with Remy using his trademark vocoder. “Dans La Mancha” has a Latin/salsa feel with Kevin Robinson on trumpet and flugel horn.
North London-based Tony is one of the world’s most exciting guitar players, with a hard-edged, rhythmically driven approach enriched with jazz intuition and bluesy soul. He began his music career over two decades ago. His 1985 band Desperately Seeking Fusion featured Patrick Clahar, Jason Rebello and Julian Crampton. His first solo album was released by US Label GRP in 1993.
He has toured with a wide range of musicians and Artists, including Courtney Pine, Freddy Hubbard, Lonnie Liston Smith, Lenny White, Omar, Simply Red, Ronnie Laws, Down To The Bone, Nelson Rangell, Maysa and, of course, Incognito.
Jean-Paul `Bluey’ Maunick formed Incognito in 1979.
