Trombo Combo: “Min Mor Sa Till Mig” (2006)

Sweden’s Trombo Combo issued one album, Swedish Sound Deluxe, a breezy collection of covers with a 50’s-60’s lounge vibe and a smooth bossa nova/easy listening sound. Some of the songs (Bowie’s “Let’s Dance”, Britney’s “…Baby One More Time”, Europe’s “The Final Countdown”) were hits in America. Others, like “Min Mor Sa Till Mig” were covers of Swedish hits.

So, while to a Swedish audience this probably sounds like a cool (or cheesy) re-working in the mode of Max Raabe, to American ears it’s just a cool (or cheesy) easy listening bossa nova.
