What does the word 'groovy' mean?

It's something similar to words like: awesome, cool, fashionable, and amazing.

It was most popular in the 1960's but is coming back a little bit.

The term goes back to the 1920's when jazz musicians referred to the 'groove', or the rhythm, of the music. Some people say it's also from the literal groove in a record.
