Lars Ekborg

Back in 1967 Lark Ekborg released a cover album of Tom Lehrer's, it was recorded to mimic the solo piano that Tom favors. While at first thought this sounds like another Jack Elgan, it is not, for Lars translated the songs he sung into Swedish. He picked his favorites off several of Tom's albums, and put them on his album. Lars seems to also be known for his film work in Sweden.
