Ingram Washington – Sweet N Low

Ingram Washington - Sweet N Low

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. A must for every Audiophile.

OUR RECORDING PHILOSOPHY STS get a lot of e-mails from audio fans from all over the world and they ask always the same question: what is your motivation to make such beautiful recordings and mastering, well here we go. The first reason is that they like music very much, it is a wonderful way to express feelings and communicate with other people on a same level. They also like the sound of musical instruments, played in fine acoustic surroundings, they sound so pure and warm. Unfortunately most CD, LP and Reel to Reel tapes are bad recorded, with a harsh sound to close and without ambience. For this reason they started with STS Digital twenty years ago to do something totally different and the results are our recordings with a fine selection and series like: Extended Dynamic Experience, Celebrate the Art & Spirit of music, Siltech Test Demo CD, The Absolute Sound Reference lots of LP’s and Reel to Reel tapes. They give in these series and products every musical instrument the space they need, so the original sound can be developed her typical sound of various instruments with the help of good ambience. 
A sax will sound like a sax and not like a clarinet and a piano sounds like a piano and not a keyboard. Now you understand how important it is to record music in a good sounding concert room or church and not in a dry studio with close miking. To get the best out of their microphones Schoeps they use golden/silver cables from Siltech/copper cables from Van den Hul and they clean up AC currency with their own developed 6 pack AC Power Block. They use their ears by first listening in the concert room or church where an orchestra/band/singers etc. is playing for some time and then go back to their recording room to get the sound, what we first heard in the concert room/church, as natural as possible. It is usual dictated by placing the microphones not to close, they also put a lot of effort in mixing and mastering the recordings, they guard the whole recording process with their ears like a wolf in the night. Every step they check the results and compare the process with the original recordings. If you listen to our productions remember that they did their out most best to get for you all the benefits of our effort to go far beyond the best of the best. STS Digital
