hello Johnm---re staccato in old pop---I was not referring to Mr. Welk---he was the tail end of this.

believe me, those notes meant something different in 1912--they were snappy and energetic, pretty jazzy (in pop music anyway.)

btw, what is meant by Weenie Campbell? I don't check FAQs.

meanwhile, I am hoping for more opinions and thoughts on the beginning of swing 8ths. Pop piano "before swing" is my area of study.
