One of the fastest emerging contemporary jazz recording artists in recent history, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer, Vincent Ingala has blasted into an exciting stratosphere of his own making since his 2010 critically acclaimed debut album, North End Soul. Still in his early twenties, the charismatic saxophonist has been named Billboard Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year in 2012, Sirius XM Watercolors Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2013, and his music is consistently found atop the most noteworthy music charts in the world, including three number one hits on the Billboard Smooth Jazz Chart, and seven singles in the Billboard Smooth Jazz Top 10.
As much of an entertainer as he is a musician, the Yamaha Performing Artist has been wowing live audiences as a regular on the popular smooth jazz festival and cruise circuit for several years. His fun-loving stage presence, combined with an obvious passion for playing, elevates the crowd to an exciting frenzy!
His third album, 2015’s Coast To Coast, has placed Vincent Ingala back on top, with the project’s first and second singles, hitting number one on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart. The star-studded, horn-drenched new album finds Vincent vibing with british jazz trombonist, Dennis Rollins (of BadBone & Co.), Lee Thornberg (formerly of Tower Of Power), and smooth jazz icon, Peter White.
An “old soul,” as he’s often referred to, Vincent possesses a deep knowledge and appreciation for all genres of music
