Jorgen Ingmann - Swinging Guitar (1959)




















This LP is pretty much in the same vein, as say, Les Paul or Chet Adkins, without the ingenuity. You'll find the same song line-up that the aforementioned do, on this one: Blue Moon, Bye Bye Blues, Twilight Time, etc. Good for background sounds while reading the Sunday paper. It's sure not to impress your friends.

Swing it.

Hi. Well for 40 years a reel to reel tape of this album has been in our family. I was always told it was "Les Paul" but had my suspicions. Today, after Googling the set list, I realized it was this fellow I had never heard of. I am a guitar player and a fan of Les Paul, Django, Chet et al and this record has influenced my sense of rhythm, swing and harmony. While it isn't Les Paul I do think it worth a listen. Derivative? Sure, but I think Les would have been quite pleased to have put out these versions of Moonlight Cocktails, Twilight Time and Old Moon.
