The Pfister Sisters Are Pfabulous

Harmony, thy name is Pfister!

This week, the Pfister Sisters sing out and occasionally act out during a rollicking hour spent on jazz vocal harmonies.

The Pfisters pay homage to the Boswell Sisters — one of the finest singing groups to ever come from New Orleans. In their day, the Boswells sold more than 75 million records worldwide.

Holley Bendtsen, Yvette Voelker and Debbie Davis are avid students of their fore-sisters and aim to keep Boswell melodies alive. Along the way, they tell Gwen Thompkins what they really think about Christina Aguilera's singing, German housekeeping and why pianist Amasa Miller may have a soft spot for old dope peddlers.

Visit us at MusicInsideOut.org for Pfister Sisters lagniappe, including one of Irving Berlin's racier numbers and that thing about Christina Aguilera's singing.
