I recently penned a tribute to the late Andre Harrell for Soultracks, the biggest website devoted to Soul Music. You can read it here. If you are a fan of old school legends like Heavy D & The Boyz, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Teddy Riley & Guy, Al B. Sure!, Mary J. Blige, Eddie F., Dave Hall, Jodeci, Father M.C., you probably heard them thanks to Harrell.

For close to two decades, Tony Momrelle's rich vocals have been synonymous with modern soul and jazz culture. He has added an entirely new dimension to the the UK soul genre His work with world renown UK jazz-funk outfit, Incognito, has set him apart from his contemporaries, garnering him fans from all over the world.

He joined me on The Soul Of Jazz, in the WCLK studios, where we talked talked about Incognito, why he was handpicked by Sade to join her band, how Al B. Sure! was his introduction to becoming a real singer, and so much more.

Incognito returns to Cobb Energy Centre for their 40th anniversary tour with special guest Maysa and Citrus Sun tonight at 7:30 p.m.  Bluey, the band's guiding light, stopped by WCLK to talk with me about the show and much else during The SOUL of Jazz.
