Inge Brandenburg & das hr Jazzensemble: Easy Street

1-CD digipak (4-plated) with 44-page booklet, 20 tracks. Total playing time approx. 61 minutes.
  • 'Easy Street' gathers all 20 tracks Inge Brandenburg recorded with the Frankfurt Jazz Ensembles
  • These songs certainly are some of the most carefully produced jazz recordings in the vocalist's entire career.

At the Antibes Jazz Festival in July 1960, Inge Brandenburg was elected best jazz singer in Europe. But when she died in a Munich-Schwabing hospital on February 23, 1999 - only five days after her 70th birthday - she had become poor and almost forgotten.

The recordings collected on this CD fill a painful gap in the documented work of one of the greatest singing talents coming out of the German jazz scene. The recordings were made between January 1959 and July 1961. At the time, Inge Brandenburg was living in Frankfurt/Main, where she was discovered during the 6th German Jazz Festival. It was at the same festival that the hr Jazz Ensemble was also presented to the public. This studio formation, built around the brothers Albert and Emil Mangelsdorff and saxophonist and arranger Joki Freund, consisted of some of the best musicians from the Frankfurt jazz scene. Regular recording sessions at Hessischer Rundfunk provided the basic financial security that allowed them to work as freelance musicians and to live for their art. In the 2011-released CD accompanying the documentary 'Sing! Inge, Sing! ' five of the titles were released for the first time. 'Easy Street' finally gathers all 20 tracks Inge Brandenburg recorded with the Frankfurt Jazz Ensembles and makes them publicly available more than 50 years after their creation.

These songs certainly are some of the most carefully produced jazz recordings in the vocalist's entire career. Accompanied by various hr jazz ensembles with chamber-music-like sensitivity, her voice with all its expressiveness and nuances of sound can be heard with impressive clarity. Excellent arrangements written by Joki Freund and Pepsi Auer, and masterful improvisations of Albert and Emil Mangelsdorff, Joki Freund, Dusko Goykovich and others give many titles extra brilliance.

Artist description "Brandenburg, Inge"

Inge BrandenburgIn July 1960 Inge Brandenburg was named best female jazz singer in Europe at the Antibes Jazz Festival. But when she died at the hospital München Schwabing on 23 February 1999 – only five days after her 70th birthday – she was impoverished and almost forgotten. Her life was a story that happened "mainly in minor chords, with too many blue notes." These words were written on the cover of her first album Herzlichst, Inge from 1960, and they showed the listeners the hard-paved road she had to walk until she finally arrived where she belonged: at the top.

Today we know that her life continued in minor chords until the end. Childhood Under Ominous Signs Inge Brandenburg was born on 18 February 1929 in Leipzig. Her father took the two-year-old to his favourite hangout where he placed her on the table and had her sing. This way Inge earned her first applause and a free beer for her father. At the age of ten Inge had to witness how her father was collected and beaten up by the Gestapo. "I suppose he was a Communist," she later said in an interview. He was deported to Mauthausen concentration camp, where he died in 1940. The letter which was attached to the urn containing her father's ashes curtly stated: "death by electric shock." It was never clarified whether he got killed, or died in an accident, or in an attempted escape.

Inge BrandenburgHer mother also fell victim to National Socialist arbitrariness: two months before the end of the war her tracks vanished on a transport from Ravensbrück concentration camp to Dachau. The reasons she ended up in a concentration camp can only be assumed: possibly because she had slipped food to Polish prisoners of war while working in a restaurant kitchen. Inge grew up in children's homes, separated from her five brothers and sisters. She soon became the solo singer at church – but her talent was not promoted. In response to the young girl's request for piano lessons, her head-mistress replied: "You should learn a proper, reasonable profession.

Piano lessons – that's for high-ranking daughters who need to do nothing else for their whole lifetime."
