SWINGING GOOD OLD CHRISTMAS


Guitar player from Denmark, played with Svend Asmussen as early as 1945
Jorgen Ingmann

LP Metronome MLP-15436 (1971)

Many visitors, many downloads, but very few comments. One of those small things a blogger want is some kind of response. A lot of work is behind every vinyl post - at least if it has good quality. I really enjoy to clean up a record and make it sounds as good as possible, but I believe it could have been a lot more funnier with just a little more appreciation. I also know that I can't demand anything, so I will continue - just as long as it's fun. Besides all that: hope you'll like this one!

Nice peaceful and cheer-up music - just for Christmas time. Interesting guitar (2 ones ?) performance, with background choral voices, clinking sounds, etc. As usual - records are of very good quality. But what do you mean by saying 1945 ?

Very nice Blog you have here. I just started one yellowdaysvinyl.blogspot.com
I have a very large collection of LPs and just started cleaning them up and posting. Yours are very nice!! I know how much hard work is involved in getting a good sound from an old scratchy record. Hope you continue to post. Thank you very much.

Jørgen Ingeman start playing jazz/ swing music under the ww 2 ( 1940) in Copenhagen went solo in late 50's and record under Bent Frabic's metronome comp. the ally cat song man ) His Greatest hit was Apache that went to the top in '62 (usa ) and he was also winning the europe melodie contest in '63 with his wife Grethe ( song :Dansevise ) still living in Denmark
Thanks for finding this one lp for me ( been looking for years )
PS he was always using a overdub. and ecco on his recording so it's sound's like there was more guitar players on his recordings

I know what you mean, comments are a big motivator when you rip from vinyl. I also have a blog and understand the time and passion that can be involved. I know I don't always leave comments because I rarely listen to what I download immediately. So I don't know what I will think of it unless it's something I have already heard, which is generally not the case. Still, a simple thank you and a note as to why you were glad to find the post is easy enough. I am a guitar lover and finding a Christmas album by this guy is a fun discovery that I am looking forward to hearing. I have a couple of his LP's that I plan on posting eventually. Thanks so much!
