Boogie Woogie On Music 101
Boogie Woogie is an offshoot of so many early American musical genres, including gospel, blues, folk, and several other African American cultural influences.
As a form, Boogie Woogie rose to popularity in the 1920s, and offered a swinging soundtrack to Jazz-Age America. Over time, it has evolved to such a degree that it is considered one of the early predecessors to Rock & Roll. In many ways, Boogie Woogie would provide the roll, forming the foundation for so many music movements to follow.
