Back in the 1950's I used to love Winifred Atwell playing stuff like Black and White Rag, its was sort of Boogie Woogie.

Oh yes. I remember Black and White Rag as the theme tune to Pot Black in the 1970s.

I have It's never to late to play ... Blues, Rags and Boogies by Pam Wedgwood. There's a good selection of each genre from easy to challenging (I've just passed grade 3) and my teacher really likes it. I bought it mainly for the rag pieces but plan to have a go at some of the others.
