The Origins and History of R&B Music
Rhythm and Blues (R&B) is a term used to depict the blues-affected type of music which has been mostly performed by African-Americans since the end of the 1930s. The term 'Rhythm and Blues' was first brought into the American vocabulary in the last part of the 1940s: the name's origin point was created for use as a marketing term by Billboard magazine.
In 1949, then, at that point Billboard magazine correspondent Jerry Wexler (who later proceeded to turn into a compelling music producer) made the term for Billboard to assign perky well known music performed by African American craftsmen that combined Blues and Jazz.
The "Rhythm and Blues" term was made to replace the assignment "race music," which up to that point was the standard catch-all expression utilized regarding most music made by Black individuals at that point. Later the "race music" term was considered hostile, Billboard started utilizing the Rhythm and Blues name that Wexler made.
During the 1950s, Rhythm and Blues music was related with Black youth in disreputable bars and late night clubs, and it was regularly excused as an uncultured style of art contrasted with Jazz's more highbrow type of Black articulation. As hip hop music emerged and started to overwhelm the Black social scene, R&B became considered as "a bunch of love songs".
By the 1970s, the term rhythm and blues became a sweeping term that included both soul and funk types of music. Also today, the term can be utilized to freely characterize most sung African-American urban music, despite the fact that soul and funk can be put in classifications of their own.
