What does New York sound like? For me, the Charlie Parker at the Royal Roost recordings on the Savoy label are the total embodiment of the New York music experience.
We used to play the Savoy Ballroom, and we always had a boogie tune in the set.
Bands like Tommy Dorsey used to do a little boogie woogie. The big bands.
I was a big J. Geils fan, a Steppenwolf fan and a Savoy Brown fan.
