Citrus Sun

Jean-Paul Maunick, Incognito founder, presents his alter ego, Citrus Sun. It features Jim Mullen, the legendary UK guitarist. They are good friends and have collaborated on several projects, including Terry Callier and Mario Biondi.Mullen’s credits in a 40-year career include Brian Auger, Average White Band, Kokomo, Jimmy Witherspoon and the pioneering British jazz funk band Morrissey-Mullen.Citrus Sun’s music is more contemporary jazz-based than the acid jazz leanings of Bluey’s other productions with Incognito and Maysa Leak.”In terms of sound it is also more sparse as it features the sole trumpet reminiscent of the late Donald Byrd, and there is a cool Latin jazz flavour on some of the cuts”, says Bluey. Bluey says that Incognito’s distinctive sound of Jim Mullen’s thumbing guitarist brings a unique tonal quality to Citrus Sun. However, it is also evident that this is Incognito’s rhythm section. At times, it is clear that Citrus Sun features Valerie Etienne (vocals), Bluey (guitar, vocals), Jim Mullen(guitar), Francesco Mendolia, Joao Caetano, Dominic Glover (trumpet). from
