Connee Boswell, the singer who began her career as Connie Boswell, but decided to change the spelling of her name in 1945, was a member of the brilliant, influential and hugely successful vocal trio The Boswell Sisters, who had a string of hits in the 1920s and ‘30s until retiring in 1936.

The Boswell Sisters were arguably the best and most original, influential and innovative vocal group in the annals of popular music. Their appreciation of jazz rhythms and blues inflexions combined with their vocal gymnastics to create a unique sound and style, which resulted in huge record sales, regrettably during the pre-record sales chart era. Acrobat’s Boswell Sisters Collection 1925-36 (ADDCD3208), celebrates that legacy.

Connee, who had already been making solo records had hits through into the 1950s. This 73-track set features selected A- and B-sides of her solo singles and duet recordings with Bing Crosby on the Brunswick and Decca labels. Recording variously with the orchestras of Victor Young, Bunny Berigan, Ben Pollack, Bob Crosby, Harry Sosnik, Jimmie Grier, John Scott Trotter, Russ Morgan, Sy Oliver and Bob Haggart, she was a highly-regarded performer across the jazz, swing and pop spectrum.

It includes all her solo chart entries and those with Bing Crosby – 25 in total – including the No.1s Bob White and Alexander’s Ragtime Band with Crosby, and the Top 10 hits Say It Isn’t So, On The Beach At Bali-Bali, Whispers In The Dark, I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart, On The Isle Of May, If I Give My Heart To You and An Apple For The Teacher. An entertaining showcase for her talent as a hit-maker whose chart career lasted over a quarter of a century.
