“Boogie woogie is a jazz piano style based on blues music and usually played on a fast tempo…
“Even if boogie-woogie naturally assimilates many jazz idioms, the real encounter between boogie-woogie and jazz happened in 1939: after two successful concerts given at Carnegie Hall in New York (entitled From Spiritual To Swing) which Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson and Meade Lux Lewis participated, boogie woogie known a great popularity. The Café Society became a mythical place to hear the greatest boogie-woogie players, and almost all jazzmen included at least one boogie-woogie in their repertoire. This was the beginning of the boogie-woogie craze, which will last till around 1945.”
