It's Your Night (1983), Ingram's debut album produced by the master Quincy Jones. Again reuniting the best of the Los Angeles session fraternity, makes it a solid album, not a masterpiece but, very good. The tracks that stand out to me are (obviously) Yah Mo B There (with Michael McDonald), Whatever We Imagine and One More Rhythm (not a single but I love this song). The typical 1980s R&B-funk sound album, very characteristic, and awesome
