CONNIE BOSWELL - They Can't Take These Songs Away From Me - Double CD

CONNIE BOSWELL - They Can't Take These Songs Away From Me - Double CD
£9.99
CD / Product Number: JASCD386

This high-quality, bargain priced, two-disc set is chock full of rare delights from the unparalleled Connie Boswell. Connie was not only a singer of otherworldly beauty, with an impossible sense of swing, she was also a multi-instrumentalist, arranger, actor, composer and humanitarian. Ella Fitzgerald famously named Connie as her main influence, and as leader of the immortal hot-jazz vocal group, The Boswell Sisters, Connie influenced other artists ranging from The Andrews Sisters to Artie Shaw. Connie's silky, Louisiana-accented voice, brilliant jazz phrasing, and phenomenal interpretive abilities make her someone no fan of jazz or classic pop should miss. With this set, producer Geoff Milne has given us a multitude of recordings new to CD, which nicely complement tracks on other existing compilations. We can only be grateful. The songs featured range from 1931 to 1946.
