Summary
Breaking away from the well-traveled blues trail connecting the Mississippi Delta with Chicago, this program searches for fresh insights about R&B in an entirely different direction: the migratory route that runs from the South to the California coast, where work opportunities abounded during World War II. With its jazzy instrumentation and strong gospel flavor, R&B spread like wildfire, eventually becoming a fundamental element of rock 'n' roll. Performers include Big Mama Thornton, Joe Liggins, Lowell Fulson, Lloyd Glenn, Charles Brown, Big Jay McNeely, and Margie Evans.
