Lots of Fun
Michael Goldman | Sunnyvale, CA USA | 07/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Boogie-Woogie craze swept through the country around 1930s-1940s and everyone churned out something for the popular style. The big bands of the time after zipping though the base song then started improvising so it is good fun and still jazz. Lots of good songs - particularly "Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar" which at over 5 minutes is unusually long for the period (78 RPM vinyl records could only hold about 3 minutes). The band runs through the extremely simple (but fun) song and then start wailing. (If you notice some similarities with "Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy" and some others its because its the same composer.)

Jelly Roll Morton was quoted on Ken Burns "Jazz" as stopping a fellow musician and saying "you ain't tapping your feet...you ain't playing jazz if you ain't tapping your feet!" This CD serves as corroborating evidence in support of that thesis."
