RnB 50s

RnB 50s

The advent of rock in 1947 revolutionized not only American folk and country music but also boogie-woogie, blues, jazz, swing-jazz, gospel and vocals. In the following years, each of these musical genres integrated in its own ways the moods, rhythms and instruments of rock 'n' roll (.. more, see Rock USA 40s). Beginning in 1950, Rythm'n' Blues (RnB USA) was the music scene where the most popular and high-profile musical genres developed as a result of the aforementioned evolution. As such, RnB defined the modern pop music of Afro-American communities. Throughout the 50s, its most successful subgenres were rock, gospel, vocals and blues.  (.. more, see RnB 50s)

King, Bobby Womack (with The Valentinos), Wilson Picket, Ike & Tina Turner and, in the progressive rock movement, Jimi Hendrix.  (.. more, see RnB Soul 60s)
