Fusion Flavours special by Steve Quirk celebrating the great singer, songwriter, record producer, and instrumentalist

Welcome to a Fusion Flavours Special, I’m Steve Quirk.

We lost James Ingram on January 29th 2019 at the age of 66.

James Edward Ingram was born February 16th 1952 in Akron Ohio. James started his musical career in 1973.

Nominated for 14 Grammys, he won Grammys for “One hundred Ways” in 1981 and “Yah mo b there” in 1984. He was Oscar nominated in 1983 with “How do you keep the music playing” with Patti Austin.

I first heard James's voice back in 1980 singing for Lamont Dozier’s project Zingara and “Love’s Calling”… and I’ve been hooked ever since.

He was the musical soundtrack to many peoples live and left a legacy of amazing music.

This is MY musical tribute to the 'late' James Ingram.
