Soul and R&B
The roots of soul and R&B run deep. This book charts the development of this uniquely American music form from the 1800s through to the present. It also shows how social, economic, and regional factors have all helped to shape soul and R&B over time and, in turn, how this music has gone on to influence other genres, such as Blues, Rock, and Jazz.
