More about Ingrid James
[Ingrid]…”showcases the versatility in Ingrid’s sultry, smooth sound as well as her wonderful intonation and musicality. At times she’s out front with her unique vocal style and melodic interpretation. Then, just as easily, she’s able to blend right into the horn section as if she were one of the instruments”. Eric Marienthal, USA, saxophonist/composer 

”She whisks through with the ease and precision of a fleet-footed ballet dancer. Ingrid is a fluid balladeer who appeals to the emotions as she captivates our ears while masterfully painting word pictures…using her voice as an instrument to double the lead, scat sing or join the horn line behind a soloist (here again a perfect trifecta). Whether she’s the vocalist in front of the band or melding her voice into an instrument within the band, Ingrid James consistently displays impeccable intonation, pinpoint articulation and the ability to navigate unusual intervals and angles with finesse, without ever losing the beauty of her God-given voice” Mark Channon, Radio Host, USA.
