Ingfried Hoffmann
As early as 1963, Ingfried presented his first solo album together with René Thomas, Helmut Kandlberger and Klaus Weiss - "Hoffmann's Hammond Tales". Three years later a second album was released "From twen with love", a compilation of 007-themes. Pierre Cavalli, Volker Kriegel, Peter Trunk and Ralf Lüderitz were his sidemen. The very beginnings of his career lie years earlier, when Ingfried joined the Klaus Doldinger Quartet and Paul Nero's Sounds (Paul Nero has been a synonym of Klaus Doldinger). He also worked together with Attila Zoller and Lucky Thompson; one album of Lucky ("A Lucky Songbook in Europe") presents Ingfried as an organ player. During a certain period Ingfried toured with his "steel organ", as he called his Hammond. Under the synonym "Memphis Black" he recorded an album full of soul music titles. Later in the 80's Ingfried withdrew from the organ scene and attended to arranging, composing and teaching, where we can find him still today.
