Transcript of The Genealogy of American Music

Geneology of American Music Blues Stevie Ray Vaughn R & B Classic Female Blues Delta Blues Country Blues Memphis Blues Texas Blues Chicago Blues Jump Blues New Orleans Blues West Coast Blues Piano Blues Louisiana Blues Soul Modern Acoustic Blues Modern Electric Blues British Blues Jazz 1940s R&B came from the genre of Blues, though it is different in multiple ways.
It incorporates elements of African-American music with more modern form. Various styles were based on a mingling of European influences with jazz rhythms and tonal inflections, particularly syncopation and the flatted blues chords. Ragtime New Orleans Jazz Classic Jazz Dixieland Swing Bebop Cool Jazz Mainstream Third Stream Latin Jazz Blues originated on southern plantations during the 19th century.
The creaters of this form of music were slaves, ex-slaves, and decendents of
slaves. It evolved from African spirituals, African chants, work songs, field hollers, rural fife and drum music, revivalist hymns, and country dance music. Early 1900s "No America, no jazz. I’ve seen people try to connect it to other countries, for instance to Africa, but it doesn’t have a damn thing to do with Africa". -Art Blakey 2000s Mamie Smith Bessie Smith Blind Willie Johnson Dick Justice Louis Jordan Elmore James Jimi Hendrix 1920 1923 1927 1929 1946 1951 1968 1982 1900s Louis Jordan - Let The Good Times Roll T-Bone Walker Johnny "Otis" Veliotes 2000s Muddy Waters Elmore James Jimmy Reed John Lee Hooker Sam "Lightnin" Hawkins Sunny Boy Williamson II Mahalia Jackson Gladys Knight & The Pips TLC T-Bone Walker - Live

Pop Rock New Wave Grunge Heavy Metal Punk 80s Hard Rock Techno The origins of this music lie in the Southern United States. Slapback, slapback echo, flutter echo, tape delay echo, echo, and reverb are some of the terms used to describe one particular aspect of rockabilly recordings and help to differentiate it from rock & roll and other genres.
Wikipedia/All Music Guide Rock-a-Billy bands today include The Reverend Horton Heat, The Cramps, The Meteors, Mad Sin, Rezurex, Tiger Army, Koffin Kats, Nekromantix, HorrorPops, and Demented Are Go.
The Stray Cats were a very popular Rock-a-Billy band in the early 80s. Stray Cats - Stray Cat Strut Earlier Rock-A-Billy bands included The Blue Caps, The Jordanaires, Rythym Orchids, The Comets, and The Crickets. The Jordanaires - All Shook Up http://members.aceweb.com/lfclark/bands.htm HorrorPops Italian-American Doo Wop Early '60s Doo Wop Doo Wop became popular in the '60s, while Rock and R&B were a hit, although there is much evidence that it existed in the early 1930s and 1940s when groups like The Mills Brothers and Ink Spots were first getting started. Ink Spots - If I Didn't Care Doo-wop was one of the most mainstream, pop-oriented R&B styles of the 1950s and 1960s. There is no real modern day Doo Wop bands. Though it died in the late 70's, there is still traces of the Doo Wop feel in today's music. Many bands, such as Outkast, incorporate that genre into their own. 1930s Doo Wop expanded to Bebop, which today, is as close to it as we can get. Today's Rock-A-Billy is actually Psychobilly. .
An artist named Matt Freeman, from
Social Distortion, left the band and decided to go with a Psychobilly/Rockabilly feel. Funk is a mixture of R&B, Soul, and Soul Jazz, formed by African American musicians in the late 1960s. Many instruments are incorporated into this genre of music, including many horns. Some of these include trumpets, trumbones, saxophones, electric guitars, and electric basses. Funk lead to many other genres including Disco, Hip-Hop, and Rap. Fat Possum Records The Funk genre is less about melody and harmony, but more about having strong rhythm that is perfect for getting your groove on. Afrobeat Funk Metal Funk Rock Funkcore Jazz Funk Acid Jazz G-Funk Punk Funk Funky House UK Funky Discofunk Grunk Other forms of Funk: George Clinton James Brown Prince Kool & The Gang Rick James - Super Freak Ol' Dirty Bastard Rick James The first Disco songs appeared in 1970. Also, Disco has soaring vocals over a steady "four-on-the-floor" beat. Funk, Latin, and Soul music influenced the creation of Disco music. In most disco tracks, strings, horns, electric pianos, and electric guitars create a lush background sound. Bee Gee's The Village People Donna Summer KC & The Sunshine Band ABBA ABBA - Dancing Queen Although there is no modern Disco bands, electronic bands and techno bands are bringing the Disco feel back into their music.

Electronic music and Dance music are much different genres than Techno music, although most people consider Techno a generic description for all. Techno is a subgenre of electronic dance music. It is different then the other subgenres of Electronic dance music because of how many layers are in the song as well as how the flow is of the song. For example, techno music has about 4-8 layers and has short phrases and loops while trance has 6-12 layers and long, complicated phrases.
