Boogie-woogie is a style of piano-based blues that became very popular in the late 1930s and early 1940s, but originated much earlier, and was extended from piano, to three pianos at once, guitar, big band, and country and western music, and even gospel. Whilst the blues traditionally depicts a variety of emotions, boogie-woogie is mainly associated with dancing. It's believed boogie-woogie gave birth to the earliest versions of uptempo music.

    No description of boogie woogie? That's sad.

    Hey, marrazzomm, thats because in "Works, Vol. 2" they play some songs like "Honky Tonk Train Blues", from Meade Lux Lewis, "Maple Leaf Rag" or even "Barrelhouse Shake-Down" that really sounds like some boogie woogie songs, but is the only disc when songs like this appear, I guess.

    Under "Top Artists" in this category "Boogie Woogie", I see "Emerson, Lake, and Palmer"?!? They're splendid musicians, but Boogie Woogie is not where anybody I know of would expect to see them listed. Maybe we could get the Sex Pistols in here, or Tiny Tim, or even Abba.
