One of my favorite Rick Braun songs, a version of Hugh Masekela's 'Grazing In The Grass' on Rick's Sessions, Volume 1 album, found live version on youtube, enjoy :

There are some jazz bands that just sound better live and imo Incognito is one of them. Love their cover version of the definitive version of Boz Scaggs 'Lowdown'. Here's two versions with Mario Biondi performing this song [Chaka Khan in first video, some nice eye candy for the boys here] :

Also check out 'Aways There' :

If you love their old stuff their live in Japan [ Blue Note, Tokyo] has the best for content, the picture quality is not so hot. Can't find any decent source of their concert performances in the USA which looks fantastic as seen from their tour guide video, would love to get this on blue ray if/when available.
