Furthermore: the classically schooled multidisciplinary instrumentalists the Boswell Sisters, who sang as if their voices were musical instruments. The most prominent one was Connee, who depended on a wheelchair, and who learned her breathing techniques by listening to Caruso’s records. In the 1930s they were the biggest, they were succeeded by The Andrew Sisters.

The Weavers as well, the folk group around Pete Seeger who had a hard time in the 1950s when there was a witch-hunt against communists. We will hear them in a song that later became a hit for The Beach Boys.

And The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, The Four Knights, Bing Crosby with The Rythm Boys, The Five Keys, Tommy Dorsey with THe Sentimentalists, Lionel Hampton with The Hamptones, and a story about a fat rooster in the backyard by The Ravens.
