BOSWELL SISTERS PROVE JAZZ IS HEALTHY: “CLOSE FARM-ONY”

This 1932 short is the first film appearance of the Boswell Sisters.  True, it’s light-years away from CITIZEN KANE, but I don’t care.  The silly and witty lyrics, the Sisters’ beautiful harmonies and irrepressible swing, and that hay-covered piano make this hilariously memorable.

Although we intuitively knew that jazz was good for us, proof like this is extremely comforting.
