It is often been said (rather too simplistically in many cases) that jazz is a combination of European and African practices. I am interested particularly in classical piano techniques that have been adapted to, or at least have a counterpart in, jazz piano. The "striding" motion that characterizes stride piano as played by James P. Johnson, Fats Waller, et al., for example, can easily be found in the music of Chopin.
Is there anything in the pre-20th century classical canon that resembles the boogie-woogie bass line used by Albert Ammons, Pete Johnson, et al.? Clearly the blues and swing elements of boogie are a uniquely African-American development, but are the ostinato eight-to-the-bar figurations they use also unique to this genre?
