Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick

Guitarist/producer Jean Paul "Bluey" Maunick is the founder of acid jazz group Incognito and its smooth jazz offshoot Citrus Sun. Maunick's interest in music started in his childhood years while he was growing up on Mauritius Island near Madagascar. His wanderlust was fueled by the sailors who'd visit the island, spinning exciting, harrowing tales of the Amazon, Bail, and the Nile. Around 1967, Maunick and his mother moved to London when he was around ten years old. Becoming a part of the vibrant music scene, the guitarist formed the R&B/jazz band Light of the World in 1978. A pre-stardom Sade was featured on the cover of the band's 1979 Ensign Records debut LP Light of the World. Their other albums were Round Trip and Check Us Out.
