Incognito / Adventures In Black Sunshine

ジャケ写はブルーイが生ギター持ってるんで

アコースティックなアルバムかと思いました。

 

しかし、聞いてみても全くそんなことはなくいつものインコグの世界でホッとしたような裏切られたような気持ちです。

曲は若干しっとり系が多い構成ですが、相変わらずFunk、ラテン、Jazz/Fusion、ハウスと多彩でナイス・サウンドと楽曲、インコグは健在です。

 

メンバーにはインコグニート史上、最も有名かつ人気の高いヴォーカリストの、メイザ・リークが復帰。そしてジョージ・デュークがフェンダー・ローズで参加。

 

エレピとボーカルのデュオ曲「This Thing Called Love」は歌いまわしがスティービー・ワンダーにそっくりなのが気になりますがシンプルに心に浸みます。ジョージ・デューク参加の歌なし「Mindin' My Business 」は少し前のフュージョンぽいアレンジがまた新鮮です。

あっ発見です「The World Is Mine」の最後のサックスソロに耳覚えがあると思ったらサンボーンの Run For Cover のアドリブ崩しじゃない?
