To these American ears, Merit Hemmingson’s Swedish lyrics on “Brudmarsch efter Florsen i Burs” come across like an inspired – if whimsical – jazz scat vocal. Known as the “queen of Swedish Hammond folk groove,” “Brudmarsch” is culled from Hemmingson’s 1972 LP, Trollskog. While the Hammond organ is ever-present, it’s this – the more ‘folk’ than ‘groove’ side of her work – that keeps me coming back.
