VA • Boogie Woogie Gals



The word boogie dates to the 14th century. "Bugge" meant phantom or ghost. A similar word, "booger" may originate in West Africa - the Mandingo word "bug" was associated with a fast drumbeat in the performance of voodoo music. Somehow the two words converged.

"Booger" was applied to a form of piano rag which evolved into boogie-woogie. At some time the word 'boogie' became a euphemism for sex. "Boogie-woogie" music was now a form of barrelhouse piano and a vocal expression of sexual prowess.

Boogie-woogie traveled out from the south, finding strongholds in Kansas City, Chicago and St. Louis. Jimmy Yancey, Meade Lux Lewis, Jabbo Williams and Pete Johnson all helped spread the faith.

Cleo (Cleopatra) Brown was one of the first recorded female boogie-woogie pianists/singers. She learned boogie from her brother Everett. Her popular Cleo's Boogie is included here.

Also important was Mary Lou Williams, the most significant female jazz artist during the 1930s. She joined Andy Kirk's band, as pianist and arranger. She also wrote for Goodman, Hines, Armstrong and Ellington. With Kirk she waxed Boogie Woogie Cocktail, one of the most skilfully created boogies ever recorded.

Also included are "The Queen of Boogie," Hadda Brooks, Hazel Scott, Martha Davis, Lil Armstrong Hardin, Beryl Booker, Sarah McLawler and Anna Mae Woodburn. These women and the many others featured proved, once again, the old adage that to succeed women have to be twice as good? Not content with that - they provided a large slice of glamour as well.
