of the 50s, 60s and beyond....

Joergen Ingman

I think it was 1958 or 1959 - there was that incredible new guitar sound coming out of your radio - APACHE ! Noone knew who Joergen Ingman was - and still many don’t  know him ...... His instrumentals were such a great change from all that sing song potpourri stuff. And he could play ! Just listen to my samples - and if you have never heard him before - you are in for a surprise. A little like Django Reinhard and Chet Atkins combined.

You'll need RealAudio Player to play the sound clips

Stardust

APACHE by J. Ingman was THE instrumental - before THE SHADOWS had more success. Ingman’s version has never lost its charm, though. And - when the movie HIGH NOON was a must to see -  this version could be heard on radio all the time.( Duane Eddy’s version of High Noon has - of course - much more intensity.)

J. Ingman’s Latin touch was a surprise - coming from Denmark - but it is just done professionally.

STARDUST is a quiet, contemplative and very well played song - I don’t recall any artist, who plaed so “liquidly” - seemingly without any effort   -  and without a  big soundstudio with digital helpers....

Does anybody know what has ever become of him ? I could not find any traces.......
