In December 1938 three pianists, Pete Johnson, Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis sat onstage at New
York's Carnegie Hall and dispensed an intriguing and exciting line in Boogie Woogie. What they played is
now considered to be a major influence on R&B and rock and roll. Almost overnight, eight-to-a-bar became
part of America's Swing Scene, as virtually every big band dashed to the recording studio to cut a piano
boogie-led hit. Enjoy!
