Release Date: June 14, 2024

℗ 2024 Dome Records Ltd

Many of the tracks on “Anaconga”, the  fourth album for Dome by Bluey and Citrus Sun,  are  an homage to jazz and soul greats – both from back in the day and more recent.

It is the band’s first double album vinyl release. 


The album opens with the gorgeous Maynard Ferguson tune “Mister Mellow” from the Seventies, with backing vocals from Tony Momrelle and Deborah Bond. Bluey and Richard Bull share the production .   “Down For The Third Time”, the album’s lead single, is a deliciously funky remake of a classic Bobby Caldwell groove from 1978, with Natalie Duncan on vocals and Dominic Glover and Charlie Allen tearing it up on trumpet and guitar respectively.


 “Mystic Brew” was originally written and recorded in the Seventies by funk, soul and jazz keyboard legend Ronnie Foster and Bluey includes it “to say thank you for his massive contribution to the music we love and are inspired by”.   Erykah Badu’s “Honey”, also with vocals by Natalie Duncan, features beautiful trumpet and flugelhorn from Kevin Robinson.


The stand-out new songs on the album are “Santiago”, which features the young Indonesian harmonica player Rega Dauna, who starred on the band’s “Hard Boiled” instrumental hit from their last album “Expansions & Visions”, and “In Search of the Blue Note”, with Dominic Glover on flugelhorn and Graham Harvey on keyboards, which Bluey says is “inspired by New York City’s jazz history and nightlife”.


Bluey sums up the mood of the album:  “I hope that the rhythms wrap themselves around your consciousness and the music slithers into your soul, whilst you bask in the light of the Citrus Sun!   Unconstricted love, Bluey”.


Citrus Sun is the mainly instrumental-oriented side project which runs alongside Incognito and features many of the same musicians.  In the US the band have charted with “Mais Uma Vez”, “Calling Mr Wolf”, “Hard Boiled” and “Thinking of You” from their prior albums, and they have performed live in the UK and Europe, Asia and the US. 2023 appearance includes London’s Ronnie Scott’s jazz Club, Blue Note Tokyo(JP) and Blue Note Milano(IT), Mallorca Smooth Jazz Festival(ES), Medzinárodný Jazzový Festival(SK) etc...

Album launch is set for Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club the day before the album release followed by annual Blue Note Tokyo tour.
