Boswell Sisters


Arguably the greatest jazz vocal group of all times, New Orleans' Boswell Sisters, Martha, Vet and Connee were also talented musicians: Martha played piano, Vet played violin, banjo and guitar, and Connee played cello, saxophone and guitar. After playing in local vaudeville, their careers took off when a local radio station gave them a daily singing program. The sisters' close and complicated harmonic vocals, scatting and numerous tempo and key changes was unique in their era and has never been equalled. Read more on Last.fm

After playing in local vaudeville, their careers took off when a local radio station gave them a daily singing program. The sisters' close and complicated harmonic vocals, scatting and numerous tempo and key changes was unique in their era and has never been equalled. They recording some sides in the 20s, but it wasn't until 1930, when they recorded several sides for the Okeh label, that they finally achieved popular recognition. Between 1930 and 1936 they were the hottest vocal group in the country.

They appeared in several movies, played with the top bands (most sucessfully with the Dorsey Brothers) and were regulars on Bing Crosby's radio program. They hit the top of the Hit Parade only once, in 1935, with "The Object of My Affection" from the film Times Square Lady. Both Vet and Martha retired from show business in 1936. Connee continued with a solo career.

She hit number one twice during the late '30s, with the Bing Crosby duets "Bob White (Whatcha Gonna Swing Tonight?)" and "Alexander's Ragtime Band," and continued recording into the '60s.
