Album Notes
The Stolen Sweets formed in 2004 with the intention of reviving the songs of 1930s sister act, The Boswell Sisters. Comprised of vocalists Jen Bernard, Lara Michell and Erin Sutherland, guitarists Pete Krebs and David Langenes (both of whom sing) and double bass player Keith Brush, The Sweets' repertoire has expanded to include material from the 1920s-1940s. Their arrangements are still inspired by the Boswells' tight 3-part harmonies, frequent tempo changes and "knowing shrugs and raised eyebrows," as noted by the Oregonian's A&E.

Unlike the original Boswell arrangements that featured piano, clarinet, and horns, the Sweets incorporate gypsy jazz accompaniment reminiscent of Django Reinhardt.

The Boswell Sisters were popular harmony singers in the late 20s and early 30s, keeping company with the likes of the Dorsey Brothers, Bunny Berigan, Eddie Lang, and Benny Goodman -- partnerships that provided the jazz world with some of its most influential recordings.

The nature of the music was auspicious and good-humored, providing a ray of hope to listeners during a truly dispiriting economic depression.

The Sweets have visited New Orleans several times and have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with their dear friends, The Pfister Sisters. In 2007, The Sweets headlined the Boswell Sisters Centennial commemorating the birth of the most famous Boswell Sister, Connee, born in 1907. They hope to return to New Orleans every year to continue the celebration.

In March of 2008, the Sweets traveled to Europe, performing their unique brand of vintage jazz in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany and Slovenia. A wonderful time was had by all, and they can't wait to return.

The Sweets stay busy playing club gigs, private events and festivals all over the northwest and beyond. They strive to keep these vintage tunes alive, transporting a wide array of listeners to the early days of jazz.
