LULLABY IN RHYTHM (Benny Goodman / Walter Hirsch / Clarence Profit / Edgar Sampson) 1938 As sung by Connee Boswell 1956 (with Sy Oliver's Orchestra) Rereleased on [Connee] 2007 Him a lullaby in rhythm Dream your dreams and wonder with'em Even drums will come and take you Through the night. To my lullaby in rhythm All the breezes sigh in rhythm Rest my love, let nothin' wake you 'Til the light. Ooh, stars dance, while the shadows creep Mister moonman's gonna to rock you up high Rock you to sleep ooh. Him a lullaby in rhythm Dream your dreams and wonder with'em Sandman's gonna come and make you sleep My baby goodnight. Rock-a-bye baby, in the tree top Now when the wind blows, the cradle will rock And if the bough breaks, the cradle will fall Down will come your rock-a-bye baby and all. Ooh, rock, rock-a bye Ooh, rock, rock-a bye Ooh, rock-a-bye Rock, rock, rock-a-bye my baby and... Him a lullaby in rhythm Dream your dreams and wonder with'em Sandman's gonna come and make you sleep My baby goodnight. Notes: The Boswell sisters were American and hailed from Kansas City, Missouri (not Kansas City, Kansas). Connee Boswell (Connie by birth) was born the middle sister of the three girls, the others being Martha (the oldest), and Helvetia (Vet) (the youngest). The Boswells were known for their very intricate harmonies in vocal jazz and are arguably the best jazz vocal group of all time. One may view just how sophisticated (scatting, gulling, riffing et al) they were in their close harmonies by viewing CRAZY PEOPLE and SENTIMENTAL GENTLEMAN FROM GEORGIA, THE Connee was referred to by many of her followers, as just plain CBoz and of course the others, as MBoz and VBoz. Connee often took the lead in many vocals and historically is credited with being the primary arranger of their music. Notably, she was not held back by the fact she suffered a childhood accident which left her confined to a wheel chair during her entire career. The sisters started recording in 1930 but eventually split up when MBoz and VBoz opted for married life so Connee continued on alone with a solo career. Her own influence in the jazz world was remarkable and even Ella Fitzgerald was quoted as saying that CBoz was the one person that influenced her in her career. They were affectionately known as 'The Bozzies' by their enthusiastic fans. (Transcribed by David Story- June 2014)
