Jørgen Ingmann (born April 26, 1925) is a musician from Copenhagen, Denmark.

He worked with Svend Asmussen, the jazz violinist, during the 1940s and part of the 1950s.

During the late 1950s he changed his stage name to Jørgen Ingmann and his guitar. Under this name he recorded "Apache" in 1961, which charted at #4 in Canada and #2 in the United States. He remade Silvana Mangano's "Anna" with moderate US chart success.

Songs of his included "Tequila" (which he also recorded during the 60s, with the Champs) and a version of Pinetop Perkins' "Pinetop's Boogie Woogie" (from 1962).

He worked as a member of the duet, Grethe og Jørgen Ingmann, together with his wife Grethe Ingmann. After winning the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix competition in 1963, they went on to represent Denmark at the Eurovision Song Contest where they won with the song "Dansevise" (Dance Ballad), music by Otto Francker and lyrics by Sejr Volmer-Sørensen.

He and Grethe met in 1955, married in 1956, and divorced in 1975.
