Swedish piano sensation, Jonathan Fritzen and Vincent Ingala have officially joined forces and will be touring the world together in 2014!
Vincent Ingala has become an ever-increasing presence on the Smooth Jazz circuit, performing as a solo artist at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach Jazz Festival, Catalina Island Jazz Trax Festival, the Seabreeze Jazz Festival and was a featured artist on the Dave Koz & Friends 2011 Alaskan Cruise. Vincent has also joined forces with saxophonists, Marion Meadows & Paul Taylor.
Jonathan Fritzén was born in Stockholm to a Swedish mother and an American father. He grew up in a musical family and as a young child started playing drums. He later added piano, bass, guitar, flute and vocals, whilst during his formal training at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm he became one of the first students to receive a Masters degree in jazz. By the age of 22 Jonathan had performed several times on national television and toured with some of Sweden’s most respected jazz musicians. When ‘Love Birds’ followed three years later it marked Fritzén out as the first keyboard player from that country to release a smooth jazz CD. The rest, as they say, is history and with ‘Magical’ he is all set to write a new chapter.
