American R & B: Gospel Grooves, Funky Drummers, and Soul Power (American Music Milestones)

Populäre Musik

A singer calls out to the crowd.

An electric bass thumps out a beat.

Horns blare and strings swirl.

These are the sounds of R & B.

Rhythm and blues music evolved from all sorts of sounds: swinging jazz, gritty blues, and African American spiritual songs. The music's smooth mix of styles made it unique, and its passionate performers made it a sensation. Ever since Ray Charles hit the charts in the 1950s, R & B fans have held it down on dance floors. And R & B singers have belted out messages of love and calls for social change.
