rhythm and blues, which combines soulful singing and a strong backbeat, was the most popular music created by african americans between the late 1940s and the early 1960s. early r&b artists broke away from the big band formula by typically performing in small combos and emphasizing blues-style vocals and song structures. saxophone and piano were still prominent, but electric guitar and bass added volume and intensity, making the new sound ideal for radio and jukeboxes. this selection focuses on little known artists who had not made it big. no question that they would certainly have deserved it.
