Rock and Roll

The Boswell Sisters

Filmed in 1932

In this lavish production filmed in 1932 The Boswell Sisters; Martha, Connee, and Helvetia sing “Rock and Roll.”

The three Boswell Sisters grew up in New Orleans where they made their first record for Victor Records in 1925 but didn’t attain national attention until they moved to New York City in 1930 and started making national radio broadcasts.

*After a few recordings with OKeh Records in 1930, the sisters made numerous sides for Brunswick Records from 1931-1935 which have been widely regarded as milestone recordings of vocal Jazz ever since.
