Incognito was founded by Paul “Tubbs” Williams & Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick in 1979 as an offshoot from Light of the World. LotW was a substantially sized group and as such, certain members wanted to go in different directions. The more commercially minded members formed Beggar & Co, whilst those wanting to develop 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.
