Founded DR’s Big Band

Ib Glindemann was educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in the years 1952-56. In parallel, he was the orchestra leader for the big band Skyliners.

In 1958 Ib Glindemann became head of music for the Danish advertising-financed Radio Mercur, who sent it up to 1962.

He then founded The New Radio Dance Orchestra, which would later become DR’s Big Band, and he has been honored with a myriad of awards.

As recently as January 2012, Glindemann received the Leo Mathiesen Prize, which is awarded annually to a Danish jazz musician, who holds both elements of the Golden Age and has a forward-looking artistic jazz music.

Armstrong did the trick

Glindemann himself has said that it was for a concert with Louis Armstrong in the KB Hall in Copenhagen in 1949 that he found the love of jazz music.

Actually, he couldn’t afford a ticket when Louis Armstrong gave a concert. But a inspector commended himself on the then 15-year-old kid and closed him in to the last neighborhood where he came close to the scene.

– Suddenly something happened inside me – the floor disappeared beneath me and anything possible, Ib Glindemann told P1.

Denmark’s Mr. Swing King was born.

Started his own jazz band

The lively swing genre should become an important ingredient in Ib Glindemann’s career as a composer and orchestra leader.

Already the year after the landmark experience in the KB Hall, Glindemann began playing with his own jazz orchestra, which continued to play until 1960.

Between 1960 and 1965, the Frederiksberg-born Glindemann was the leader of Horsens Byorkester. During that period he also composed music for theater plays both in Denmark and abroad.

This applies for example to ballet music for the Pantomime Theater’s “Life in the Cloths” or stage music for “The Tempest” at the Dallas Theater Center.

It is far from Glindemann’s only experience with the United States. He has produced 182 lp with underlay music for the American market.
