He started out as a jazz guitarist in the 1940's with the orchestras of Svend Asmussen (e.g. Svend Asmussen And His Unmelancholy Danes). In the early 1950's Ingmann developed his own recording equipment making multi-track recording of his guitar-sound possible, and releasing many guitar instrumentals. His version of The Shadows instrumental-hit "Apache" became the US hit version of the tune. Together with his wife Grethe, performing as Grethe & Jørgen Ingmann, they won the 1963 European Song Contest. Besides releasing his own recordings, his orchestra Jørgen Ingmann's Orkester backed a number of contemporary Danish artists in the 1950's and early 1960's.
