Live In London: The 30th Anniversary Concert DVD

Review by Gary Hill

Incognito’s brand of music combines jazz, R and B and funk into a mélange of sounds that is simply catchy and yet also shows off plenty of instrumental prowess. It seems likely that this particular blend of sounds will appeal to a wide range of music fans. The performance here is spectacular. They really manage to put together a smoking show. I have to say that if you had been in the audience it would probably have gone down in your memory as one of the best concerts you ever saw. For those of us who weren’t in attendance, this is a great experience, too. The only real complaints come in terms of the video work – and even then they are minor. There are some bad zoom in/zoom out effects that are just plain annoying. In addition it tends towards being a bit too dark at times. Still, these are fairly minor and rather unobtrusive issues. All in all, this is a great DVD that would be an excellent introduction to this killer group.
