A boisterous documentary about boogie woogie music featuring Michigan musicians continues to pick up accolades.  “Boogie Stomp!”, featuring Okemos pianist Bob Baldori and partner Bob Seely, has won awards at preview screenings around the country.

The movie’s helping to fuel a busy touring schedule.  Appearances by Bob Baldori and another collaborator, Arthur Migliazza, were recently announced that will take them to Russia for a string of performances.

Baldori says boogie woogie music is rhythm and improvisation, played over a blues form. He describes it "music to dance to".
