Episode 21: Laughing at Life, track by track! "Dawn"
IN THIS EPISODE:
We discuss our world-premiere recording of Vet Boswell's composition, "Dawn," Oded lets us in on how he writes such beautiful instrumental introductions, and we give thanks for a very special gift from the Boswell Sisters.
Kyla Titus is the granddaughter of Vet Boswell and a huge supporter of #girlongirlharmony. We met Kyla a few years ago in New Orleans, when we traveled to the Crescent City to celebrate the Bozzies with vocal groups from around the world, and a fast friendship was born.
Kyla's written a wonderful book about the Boswell Sisters, aptly titled The Boswell Legacy. Kyla, we are so grateful to know you and we thank you for sharing the rich, glorious musical tradition of the Bozzies with us! Today's episode is dedicated to you.
FUN FACT GLEANED FROM TRYING ON VINTAGE GLOVES:

HOW WE CAME TO DEBUT A COMPOSITION BY VET BOSWELL...
Vet's granddaughter, Kyla, sent us the sheet music for a never-before-performed song written by Vet, Oded wrote a beautiful arrangement, and voila! A world premiere of a never-before-heard Boswell Sisters song was born.
