Boswell Sisters 1931-1946 Collection

The Boswell Sisters were a close harmony singing group, consisting of sisters Martha Boswell (June 9, 1905 – July 2, 1958), Connee Boswell (original name Connie) (December 3, 1907 – October 11, 1976), and Helvetia "Vet" Boswell (May 20, 1911 – November 12, 1988), noted for intricate harmonies and rhythmic experimentation. They attained national prominence in the USA in the 1930s.

The Boswell Sisters "took the idea of jazz and did it vocally."
- Maxene Andrews

Ttocselad has compiled a collection, Nineteen Favorites, made up of 19 Boswell Sisters hits from their studio recordings and radio broadcasts.
