That's How Rhythm Was Born

by The Boswell Sisters

CD

Overview

This 1995 CD has a sampling of the Boswell Sisters' recordings, 20 titles from the premier vocal jazz group's prime period. A few of the tunes are rarities (particularly "Song of Surrender," "Coffee in the Morning," and "Trav'lin All Alone"), while some others have been reissued numerous times ("Shuffle Off to Buffalo," a classic "Sentimental Gentleman from Georgia," and "Minnie the Moocher's Wedding Day"). Although one hopes that all of the Boswells' recordings will be reissued in chronological order someday (this collection skips around a bit), the CD acts as a strong introduction to the music of this magical and innovative group. The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra (with trumpeter Bunny Berigan) provides accompaniment on many of the titles.
