Part II: Bright Lights Big City

This second installment migrates from the Deep South to the North and Midwest, with musicians sowing their seeds in Chicago, Kansas City, St. Louis, and New York City. The piano takes the place of a bass and another Jazz offspring is born and named Boogie Woogie; the Blues become electrified and the straight notes are now swung as Jazz gives birth to another child known as Swing.
