I would say that Boogie-Woogie was the bad little boy of the rag family who wouldn't study. I heard crude beginnings of it in the back streets of New Orleans, in those early years following 1904, but they were really back streets... such music never got played in 'gilded palaces' - Roy Carew, from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, BBC

An interesting article.  I wonder if the author is aware of the existence of Joe Bussard.  I realise space is limited in such an article, but a mention of Mr. Bussard would have added something.

Coincidentally I was given a book by Amanda Petrusich a couple of weeks ago and have just started reading it. It is titled "It Still Moves (Lost songs, lost highways and the search for the next American music)".
