I'm sorry I've been gone so long, but I've been busy with personal things. Some sad, some great and some regular everyday stuff.
Anyway, since I haven't had much time for pictures, I thought I'd post another music break.
This time it's the 'Boswell Sisters.'
Connie, Martha, and Vet (Helvetia).
Their music comes on all the time, but I didn't really know much about them until I went to write this post today, so we're learning together :)
Their father, Clyde (a vaudevillian) and their mother, Meldania had them learn classic piano, cello, violin and classic music in general, but when their mother took them to jazz performances in New Orleans, it won them over and eventually changed they're tune.
The sisters did very well for themselves traveling all over doing performances, but it wasn't until 1930 when they ended up in New York that they gained national stardom.
They ended up with they're own radio program on CBS from 1931 to 1933 and eventually appeared in films as well.
The Andrew Sister's started out at as Boswell Sister imitators.
They have quite a few wonderful songs, but I just love the sound of Down on the Delta from 1932.
