Motown alumnus Lamont Dozier produced Zingara's R&B ballad single "Love's Calling," which featured lead vocals by James Ingram. The Los Angeles-based quartet included guitarist/singer Wali Ali, violinist Karen Coleman, drummer Minor Williams, and bassist Rick Jones (who also played on Carl Carlton's 1981 gold LP Carl Carlton, which listed the million-selling single "She's a Bad Mama Jama"). Released on the independently distributed Wheel label, "Love's Calling" went to number 29 on the R&B chart in late 1980. Dozier produced the group's self-titled LP, which was issued in June 1981. ~ Ed Hogan
