Sing! Inge, Sing! – The Shattered Dream of Inge Brandenburg
In Germany, jazz had a voice: Inge Brandenburg.
Inge Brandenburg had a difficult upbringing and soon had
to learn to stand on her own two feet, but by the late 1950s
she was being acclaimed as Europe′s finest female jazz
singer. TIME magazine compared her with Billie Holiday,
while musicians in general admired her. But the German
record industry ignored her or tried unsuccessfully to reduce her to singing hit songs.
This is the story of a woman in the 1950s and 1960s, when
there was no place in Germany for self-assured women with
international aspirations, a dramatic performance style and
an emancipated attitude to love.
Through "Sing! Inge, Sing!" it is possible to discover a
great German artiste.
