To live a life of filled with passion and purpose is one of the greatest gifts of all. The wise, young and chart-topping multi-instrumental genius Vincent Ingala seems to have mastered this feat. A Billboard Smooth Jazz Artist Of The Year, Ingala has garnered 18 Top 10 Smooth Jazz radio singles and ten #1 radio hits. “I believe it is our job as musicians to simply make music that people enjoy, and hopefully along the way, bring some happiness and inspiration into their lives,” shares the Prospect, CT native. “That is certainly my hope for when Fire & Desire is heard.” September 17, 2021 Shanachie Entertainment will release the multi-instrumentalist’s third recording for the label and seventh as a leader. The charismatic and handsome Ingala has endeared fans, contemporaries and critics alike with his consummate musicianship, fun-loving stage presence, energized and inspired performances and all-around passion. “My earliest memories are of banging on pots and pans until my parents had to buy me a drum kit and from there it was like a domino effect.” From banging on pots to churning out hits, Ingala is a chameleon in the recording studio. Like an alchemist, he concocts the perfect elixir of his broad musical influences spanning the worlds of Jazz, R&B, Disco, Pop and beyond. On the exhilarating Fire & Desire, Ingala confidently dons multiple hats.   He plays every instrument heard on the new album from saxophones and keyboards to drums, guitar and bass. He also produced, recorded and mixed the album, as well as composed all of the songs with the exception of Jimmy Roach’s “Disco Sax,” recorded in tribute to tenor titan Houston Person. Due to the challenges of the past year, Ingala was able to hone in and devote his undivided attention to Fire & Desire. “If anything, the most positive result of recording during the pandemic was the amount of time I had to dedicate to this project alone without any other distractions that could affect the flow.”

Fire & Desire opens with the multi-layered and soul-drenched original “Shadow Dancer.” The finger-snapping and funky ditty promises a joyous affair ahead and Ingala delivers. “My compositions are a result of the many music influences that have surrounded me since an early age,” shares the saxophonist. As far back as I can trace, I’ve been listening, absorbing, analyzing, recording and replicating music, so I call upon those tools and skills when I compose and record.” The breezy and melodically pleasing “Could This Be Real” follows and the album’s first single “On The Move,” is sure to elevate your mood. The track’s four-on-the-floor’s pulsating groove is reminiscent of the fabled glory days of Studio 54. “This Or That” shines a spotlight on Ingala’s gorgeous tone and effortless phrasing and he pulls out all of the stops for his unforgettable rendition of “Disco Sax,” which has the polish and shimmer of Philly International and the deep groove of Salsoul. The saxophonist shares, "’Disco Sax” was a song that my father played for me many years ago. It was in fact one of the first ever Disco 45’s he bought right before the whole Disco scene really took off - it was still ‘early’ disco. I remember that I couldn’t believe that there was this disco track with a gorgeous and full string/horn arrangement, but with a saxophone on lead at the forefront. And to top it all off, it was sax legend Houston Person who normally is heard in a more traditional/straight ahead setting. So you really don’t expect for it to work, but it DOES - and it’s a great song that makes you smile, dance and feel good!”
