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.
