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

That's for sure.

I think it was a case of incompetence on many sides and not malicious intent on anyone's part. But that doesn't lessen the impact. Hopefully, people took it as a lesson for the future. But as the article suggests, while one problem was addressed, others came forth to take its place. --And will probably continue to do so.
