A Evening With Vincent Ingala
We've been raving about Vincent Ingala since we first heard of him via our good friend Rich Edwards SmoothGrooves Radio Show on Gloucester FM and saw him live last year performing tracks from his debut CD "North End".
Since then, this young 18 year old local talent has played at The Lilly Pad (Upstairs at Toad's Place) New Haven, Ct, The Newport Beach Jazz Festival, Balcones Heights Jazz Festival in San Antonio, TX, The Dave Koz & Friends Cruise to Alaska...opened up for Jonathan Butler, and has rubbed shoulders with Mindi Abair and Sheila E. (we are jealous!)
In fact, after his performance in Connecticut, Vincent was jetting off to The Thornton Winery in Temecula, CA to open for Chris Botti.
All this success is well deserved. Vincent is able to capture the essence of the songs and play with such maturity and confidence, that so few of today's young musicians can even express. You really have to experience a live performance. You'll see how a young man, who was not even alive when the original songs he covers were released, can seize the attention of a packed room of adults, some more than THREE times his age!
Of course, Vincent's parents, Leo & Dawn's love of music and his exposure to DooWop, Jazz, R & B and Disco has something to do with it. But, Vincent gets "IT!" That raw, exuberant energy that made the music exciting in the first place, is on display every time he picks up the sax, guitar or plays the keyboard.
For tonight's performance, Vincent was joined by the accomplished and very funny Steve Scales, global percussionist and producer, who has recorded or performed with such artists as the late Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson, The Talking Heads, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Parliament/Funkadelic and David Sanborn, to name a few.
With Steve's talents backing Vincent, the performance augmented a different level, adding a deeper, rich body of sound to some of the songs that we had never heard live previously. This was especially true of the live version of "Lost In You". Steve Scales percussion literally mesmerized the audience. They are a perfect match and they came to play.
Steve was relentless in encouraging the audience to get up and party on a Saturday night - it wasn't long before a makeshift dance floor was co-opted right in front and on the stage! The energy was infectious with Vincent playing within the crowd, on the dance floor and venturing up into the seats. He never faltered with his original selections or the brilliant covers. It'll be a crime if "Let's Go Round Again" and "Move On Up" are not worked into the next album (hint, hint)!
