    No, it starts with Ä not Å. Listen to the YouTube clip, that I added, where the guitarist teaches how to pronounce the name correctly.

    Not surprising. One of my Joe Bussard collections is 'jass' on the Gennett label, all of the cornet, banjo & washboard variety. It is a 4-disc set I got for $12, and it's about 3 more discs than I need.

    Swedish Ä,ä is the same letter as Æ,æ in Danish and Norwegian.
    In 1948 AA,aa was officially changed to Å,å in Denmark. Last letter in the alfabeth. (Same sound) Some cities like Århus still like to spell it Aarhus.
    And “ø” in Danish/Norwegian is the same as “ö” in Swedish.

    It's like the long O in English, but at the back of the throat. It's one of those Swedish sounds that people from outside of Scandinavia seem to have trouble with. There's a funny video of a Danish man trying to teach a German woman to speak Danish, and she can't hear the difference between "o" and "å." And I watched this video about Åland that was clearly spoken by a Finnish-speaking Finn whose Swedish was really rusty, as he kept pronouncing it "Oland."

    I'm studying Swedish right now, and the sound that trips me up is the "sj" sound. I am always convinced that I am pronouncing it wrong.

    Well, that and the pitch accent. But I figure just listening to people speak Swedish (again, so long as they aren't from Finland) should have me on the right track.
