Album Notes
Formed in 1979, the Pfister Sisters have devoted the last 3 decades to delivering 3 part vocal jazz to the city of New Orleans. During that time, we've shared the stage with the Neville Brothers, Vet Boswell (of the Boswell Sisters), Maxene Andrews (of the Andrews Sisters), Kermit Ruffins, Ernie-K-Doe, Banu Gibson, Leigh "lil Queenie" Harris, Marcia Ball, Henry Butler, Linda Rondstadt, Jimmy Buffet, and, most recently, the Dukes of Dixieland.

This latest CD is a little bit of departure from their previous recordings. After their post –Katrina return to their beloved City, convention business (the payroll bottom line for most New Orleans musicians) had departed and the sisters found themselves working mostly in their “core-4” formation, with piano as their only accompaniment. As other musicians returned to town, they would often pop into the Pfisters regular Wednesday night performance, sit in for a bit, then head on to their own gigs. Piano “sister” Amasa first suggested doing a CD that “sounds like we sound now” and thus, Puttin’ It On was born. Primarily vocals and piano, with touches of sousaphone, violin, guitar, and ukulele.

“Any one of these three could hold a stage in her own right. What they accomplish is dazzling. Don't miss them.” — Provincetown Magazine

"Their voices melt together, their band really kicks, and they get the audience smiling and swaying in the timelessness that is the joy of music.” — Radio Free New Orleans Jazz Fest review

"one of the best examples of heritage still at Jazz Fest" --Gambit Weekly

Puttin It On
We listened to this album while enjoying Christmas in our home in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. It brought back such great memories of listening to the Pfister Sisters at the Spotted Cat and other locales in New Orleans. They are fun and entertaining to listen to but even better in real life. Can't wait to catch up with them in New Orleans later this year. If you like early New Orleans style jazz you will love this album. I think the album is going to sound even better while sipping on drinks in the summer in my gazebo.

Fabulous Pfisters!
I was in New Orleans when the girls sang with Maxene Andrews, and it was such fun! Thank you, dear ones, for keeping the Boswell's music alive, and thank you for your kindness to Maxene. She always said, "If there hadn't been the Boswell Sisters, there may never have been the Andrews Sisters." And that's the truth. This is a MARVELOUS album, girls...keep it going...

\"Puttin\' It On\"
The Pfister Sisters remain one of my favorite singing groups. They tip their hats (and shake their shimmies!) to the Boswell Sisters with humor, style and a whole lot of musicality...and isn\'t that what it\'s all about? I\'d recommend this album to anyone who likes the Bozzies, early jazz, or New Orleans\' music in general. Look for their other albums as well and if you can, find out where they\'re playing and get there!
