egidio "juke" ingala
Egidio Juke Ingala's harmonica sound has been described as a cross between Little Walter and George Harmonica Smith, with a touch of Walter Horton…and you'll agree that his groove swings like mad!
Juke is a also natural-born entertainer, gifted with a strong sense of showmanship that too often lacks in contemporary blues performers.
His sound is extremely powerful. Years of meticulous research have led him to obtain what they call "big brass tone", which has been honed by many years of success and touring. A subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack combined with a strong sense of swing are his trademark.
All his solo albums are solid productions, highly recommended for harp players and fans of Chicago Blues and West Coast Swing.
Since 2010 Egidio has been working with The Jacknives, one of the most solid and authentic blues combos in Europe. Specialized in backing up the harmonica, they proudly carry on the old school blues tradition that black musicians like the Aces started in the 50s, giving their own rendition of the idiom, helped by obsessive listening of vintage blues mixed with rock’n’roll, rhythm’n’blues, soul, jazz…
