Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Incognito - Eleven (2005)
More acid jazz/funk-pop from Bluey and the Incognito gang. Hard to feel down when this stuff gets goin'. More vocal tracks than usual for Incognito and the horns are more Earth, Wind & Fire than Jerry Hey this time around; it's good to know the group still has a few new tricks. I've been on a late '70s binge of late and this fits right in.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Peak on the US Billboard Contemporary Jazz album chart: #2
Peak on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop album chart: #52
Tracks: Today, my favorites are Let The Mystery Be, We Got Music, Baby It's Alright, Will I Ever Learn?, and It's Just One of Those Things. My least favorite track is I'll Get By.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
