Incognito: Transatlantic R.P.M. (2010)

I found this album when I realised it had a cover of Boz Scagg’s ‘Lowdown’ on it and what a great version it is. I was really impressed as well with the rest of the album, except track 2 ‘Everything That We Are’ that sounds more like a rap track, so I haven’t bothered with it on here, but I’ve included the video so that you can make up your own mind.

Features vocals from Chaka Khan and Leon Ware, for added Westcoast cred.
