Description:
  [Screening @ Tiburon Film Society]

Boogie Stomp! is a documentary film that will tell the story of boogie woogie, its origins, subsequent history and ongoing development while profiling its two greatest living players - Bob Seeley and Bob Baldori Bob Seeley spent his formative years playing with Meade Lux Lewis and other jazz greats in the 1950s and early 60s. Over the years Seeley became known as the best boogie woogie and stride player in the world.

His encyclopedic repertoire and exuberant delivery are unparalleled among contemporary players. A few years ago Seeley met Bob Baldori at a boogie woogie festival in honor of the late Johnny Johnson, Chuck Berry's original piano player. Baldori had been playing piano and harmonica with Berry since 1966. In addition to fronting his own group he spent years playing blues, boogie and rock and roll in Chicago and Detroit.

Boogie Stomp! documents how the basic elements of boogie woogie - rhythm and improvisation over a blues form - became the backbone of American music. It is an exploration of the relationship between blues, jazz, boogie, swing, stride, rock, R & B and contemporary pop music.

Together, the Bobs team up and hit the road to revive America's 'forgotten' music. The movie also features 'live' as well as studio performances of the canon of American blues, boogie and jazz including Boogie Stomp, Honky Tonk Train, Suitcase Blues, The Fives, Shake That Boogie and others. Riveting piano performances, fascinating interviews, foot-stompin' concert dance clips and tour footage from around the world.
