Program Notes

Boogie Woogie was arranged for big band and recorded by Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra in 1938. Although not immediately successful, Boogie Woogie was so popular during and after World War II that it became Dorsey's best-selling record, with over five million copies sold. Bing Crosby and Count Basie also recorded their versions of the song.
