    Ingram Washington sings 10 songs from the American Songbook including "Embraceable You" and "I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face".

    Born in Detroit, Michigan, on October 12, 1940, Ingram Washington picked up his singing skills by listening to jazz at the early age of about 10 years old. His mother Yvonne (better known as "Princess" back in the '30s and '40s) was also a singer and performer and introduced him to many great artists such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Billy Eckstine (that's when Eckstine was mainly blowing trumpet with his big band), and also a lot of not so well known local musicians working the Detroit night clubs in those days. "Those were the gold old days," says Ingram. "I was hardly tall enough to see over the edge of the stage, but my mother would take me everywhere, and I loved it."

    Ingram has worked alongside well-known artists such as Nina Simone, Ray Charles, Scott Hamilton, Teddy Edwards and life-long friend Spanky Wilson, who is more like a sister. With this LP, Ingram wants to try bringing back the true natural sound of the early ballads and evergreens from the "crooners" of the mid-'30s and '40s.

    "I don't want it to sound like every other recording that you might hear these days, and my first attempt may not suit everyone's ears, but for those of you who miss listening to soft relaxing love songs - turn down the lights, pour your favorite drink, pull up a chair, kick off your shoes, and join me."

      Metal Cutting by Gunter Pauler Germany! Ingram Washington sings 10 songs from the American Songbook including "Embraceable You" and "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face". Outstandingly true genius, not only vocally but musically as well.
      This album showcases jazz standards of the past and present and presents them in a more unique and listenable style. Great arrangements!
      "Here is a brand-new LP album of the legendary American songbook singer Ingram Washington. New is not entirely truth since the music tracks are still the same from the old album, but there is a very distinguished difference in the two albums Sweet 'n' Low.
      First Ingram did sing again on the remastered MW Coding Process music tracks. I came up with the idea, because Ingram told me that he was going to leave Holland and go back to the United States. He lives a long time in Holland and in that time, we did a lot of very good selling CD albums and even the LP What A Difference A Day Makes.
      That's the reason that I've asked him, before he was leaving to the States, to sing all new tracks for the special edition; Sweet 'n' Low LP. The top of all his albums is of course "What A Difference a day makes" and it still keeps selling even with the new MW Coding Process edition.
      I don't know if we can beat this album "What a difference a day makes" in sound performance, but we've made a pretty good try, I think. You will be the judge of that of course. You can be sure that the MW Coding Process LP album of Sweet 'n' Low is more sweet and gentle than the CD version.

      I hope you like the sound we've achieved with the use of all this exclusive equipment and cables and last but not least the voice and the choice of music from Ingram Washington."
