The Andrews Sisters:
The Andrews Sisters were a prolific and hugely successful close harmony singing
group of the swing and boogie-woogie era, consisting of three actual sisters
LaVerne, Maxene and Patty. When the sisters burst upon the music
scene in the late 1930s, they shook a very solid musical foundation: producing
a slick harmonic blend by singing at the top of their lungs while trying -
successfully - to emulate the blare of three harmonizing trumpets, with a full
big band racing behind them.
While the sisters specialized in swing, boogie-woogie, and novelty hits with
their trademark lightning-quick vocal syncopations, they also produced major
hits in jazz, ballads, folk, country western. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, can be
considered an early recording of rhythm and blues or jump blues.
