• Various Artists - Bands That Can Boogie Woogie

Boogie-woogie piano had been around a long time before bandleaders got hold of the 'eight-to-the-bar' and sent it to college. The Tommy Dorsey orchestra recorded one of the earliest examples - circa 1938 - to hit the big time, showcasing their pianist Howard Smith. It was a sanitised version of the original 'Pinetop's Boogie Woogie. It proved to be an overnight sensation and fired up yet another boogie-woogie craze. Many swing bands, anxious not to be left out, altered their repertoire accordingly. The result was phenomenal. Even vocal groups, such as the Andrew Sisters helped feed the international craze with their ‘Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy’ and ‘Rhumboogie’. Just about every instrument imaginable - from harp to bassoon - was into producing a boogie-woogie beat. Big band boogie was here to stay. And stay it did, until it was gradually nudged aside by small groups adapting the boogie beat to rock n’ roll during the 1950’s.
You may find a foot tapping, an arm twitching or even some head nodding whilst experiencing some of these ‘fine eight beats’ - but don’t worry, it’s a natural reaction that seems to effect most living souls.

Produced by Chas (Mr Boogie Woogie) Hall
