Overview

All's Well That's Boswell

Formed in 1980, the Pfister Sisters (a vocal trio consisting of the unrelated Holley Bendtsen, Suzy Malone, and Yvette Voelker-Cuccia) have long considered the Boswell Sisters to be their role models. This Boswell Sisters tribute is the logical result. Fourteen of the Boswells' recordings are recreated along with two pieces ("Close Farm-Ony Medley" and "When It's Sleepy Time Down South") taken from films. Although, of course, not as original as the Boswells, the Pfisters do an excellent job of bringing back the spirit and the tricky arrangements of what was arguably jazz's greatest vocal group. They are assisted by an octet that includes pianist Amasa Miller, clarinetist Tim Laughlin, violinist Tom Morley, and trumpeter Charlie Miller.
