The jazzy side of Rhythm & Blues 

R&B evolved originally from Jazz and Country Blues between World War I and the 1920s. Many R&B acts kept on using Jazz elements in their music throughout the decades. Great examples are Julia Lee, Louis Jordan and Lionel Hampton, and the Creole R&B and Swamp Blues out of Louisiana by Fats Domino and Smiley Lewis via Bobby Mitchell and Professor Longhair up to Katie Webster and Slim Harpo. We have the great Dames, the Queens of Rhythm & Blues, Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker, Etta James, Faye Adams, the list is again endless... Bear Family luckily got them all in every format on your wish list which hopefully is as endless! You want vinyl LPs, Singles with 45rpm speed or you like CDs?
