Can’t Stop Now

Release date : Jun. 14, 2012

Though by the 2010s, the terrestrial Smooth Jazz radio format was long on the wane and most of the festivals and cruises were headlined by previously established A-listers, a batch of promising younger talents began popping up - a new generation of funk-filled "smoothies" who could keep the grooves and melodies hopping, with the potential to attract younger fans. Among the most dynamic of these was Vincent Ingala, whose rise in the genre as an indie artist was probably destined from the time he was 16 and asked to open a show for genre superstar, Dave Koz. His second album, Can't Stop Now, is full of infectious melodies, irresistible pocket grooves, and a sense of self-assurance that bodes well for the multi-talented saxophonist to create his own destiny as an artist, no matter the fortunes of the format itself.

North End Soul

Release date : Jun. 29, 2010

Under any circumstances the CD, 'North End Soul' from the multi-talented Vincent Ingala would be considered as an outstanding piece of work. However, given that at the time of its release Vincent was only seventeen years old, this classy collection can truly be regarded as little short of remarkable. The album derives its title from the North End of Waterbury, CT where many of Vincent’s family members grew up listening to the funk, R&B and soul of the day. With 'North End Soul' he has embraced these old school sensibilities in a way that belies his years and in so doing conjures up what can only be described as a complete gem. READ MORE.
