Those who were around in the late 1970s will remember Light of the World, where Incognito sprung from.
LotW was a substantially-sized group and as such, certain members wanted to go in different directions.
The more commercially-minded members went off and formed Beggar & Co, whilst those wanting to groom a more Jazz-Funk oriented sound formed Incognito.
However, there has been a re-connection over the years in LotW with various former members, alongside their other commitments.Incognito has had intermittent success in the UK Singles Chart, with their breakthrough 1990 hit a cover version of the Ronnie Laws tune "Always There", featuring Jocelyn Brown, which made No.
6 in the UK.
The group's 1992 single, "Don't you worry 'bout a thing" saw similar success, reaching No.
19 in the UK.
They have also been a favourite of various re-mixers, including Masters at Work, David Morales, Roger Sanchez and Jazzanova, and have released several albums consisting almost entirely of remixes.In 1994, Incognito appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation album, Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool.
The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time magazine.
In 1996, the band contributed "Water to Drink" to the AIDS-benefit album Red Hot + Rio, also produced by the Red Hot Organization.Their song "Need to Know" is the theme song for liberal radio and television news program "Democracy Now!".
