„The Man Incognito“ is the fourth album by American jazz drummer Alphonse Mouzon recorded in 1975. Drummer Alphonse Mouzon recorded this jazz funk masterpiece in 1976 backed by an almost encyclopaedic cast of musicians. „The Man Incognito“ may refer to the appearance of George Duke under a pseudo name, whose funky keyboards are a highlight throughout. ‘Snake Walk’ is a great punchy jazz funk dancer with great horn stabs and a real standout. ‘New York City’, ‘Without a Reason’, ‘Mouzon Moves on’ and ‘Dance Your Troubles Away’ are jazz funk with a capitol F. The more atmospheric ‘Before You leave’ and the dynamic ‘Behind Your Mind’ add contrast to this lesser known but substantial album.


Drummer Alphonse Mouzon has always wavered back and forth between hard-driving jazz/rock fusion and disco/funk. This recording certainly falls into latter category with very little here for fans of his blazing chops. It's hard not to imagine strobe lights and a glitter ball when listening to tunes such as "Snake Walk" or "You Are My Dream." Most of the arrangements here are repetitive and were obviously meant to be used as dance music. Fusion fans are encouraged to steer clear of this one, as it amounts to nothing more than a '70s disco session -- and a boring one at that. --AllMusic Review by Robert Taylor
