CD Reviews

The queen of New Oleans sings Irving Berlin!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is wonderful, that southern drawl on such songs as always, miss Boswell swings with able help from a small jazz combo through such classicsa as There's No Business Like Show Business, Alexander's Ragtime Band, and Always(where she gives Ella Fitzgerald a run for her money) But she also tackles ballads with sensitivity and ease. This reissue comes highly recomended, it is one of Conne Boswell's few origional Lp reissues out on CD. BUY IT NOW... if you've got any class."
A rare origional reissue of a classic LP

"Conne boswell who was one of the finest jazz singers of the 30's(along with Mildred Bailey, and Lee Wiley) was highly influenced by Ethel Waters, and Miss Boswell influeced Ella Fitzgerald. Anyhow Conne Boswell has a highly appealing (and swinging) voice with a slight new orleans accent whcich adds charm and distiction to every song she sings. This PL was recorded in the late 50's aand is highly recommeded, as are all of The Boswell Sisters reisuues on CD."
Thank you Miss Connee

"It isn't Connee Boswell in her best voice - you almost have to listen to her with her sisters to really hear that - but it is Connee Boswell with a maturity that has quickened the vibrato, softened the edges of her range but not lost the feeling.

The album suffers from a production style that allows her fortisimo to echo, It favors the softly sung "Always," "How Deep is the Ocean" and "White Christmas". "Blue Skies" is almost classic CBoz with its guitar scat and vibes (harkening back to Martha's celesta accompaniment). I read reviews that made me concerned about this album, but if you love Connee Boswell, you'll love this album."
