Boswell Sisters

Boswell Sisters

Female Vocal Jazz Trio from New Orleans, LA.

One of the all-time greatest jazz vocal groups, the Boswell Sisters, Martha, Vet and Connee, began their career in the vaudeville houses of New Orleans. Connee, paralyzed from the waist down by a childhood accident (though her disability was often attributed to polio), always performed sitting down. Gifted musicians as well as singers, the sisters also worked at a local radio station, performing classical and semi-classical instrumentals. (Martha played piano, Vet played violin, banjo and guitar, and Connee played cello, saxophone and guitar.) Their careers took off when the radio station gave them a daily singing program.

Boswell Sisters : Syncopating Harmonists From New Orleans

Rarely reissued commercial cuts and unissued selections from circa 1930 radio shows. From these flashes, it seems likely that the Bosewell Sisters could have "trended" with the times for a good many years. Trended in the sense that they always did: drawing selectively upon developments and refinements in jazz and popular music, shaping and honing the music of their time - or any time - with the consummate good taste and musical integrity that was the Boswells' hallmark.
