More informationWe owe most of our music today to the early development of rhythm and blues. R&B transitioned into what became rock n roll in the mid fifties. With its roots in jazz, gospel and blues, R&B became a driving force in popular music. Once the genre had established itself, sub genres emerged including funk, reggae and disco. During the 70's, the music industry referred to R&B as soul music. In the eighties, mainstream R&B music developed into Contemporary R&B and adult urban formats.
