Putumayo Presents: Rhythm & Blues

Putumayo Presents: Rhythm & Blues
Classic rhythm & blues performed by first generation legends
and rising stars of today’s retro R&B revival

Release Date: February 9, 2010
 
Putumayo’s newest release, Rhythm & Blues, features first generation soul legends and rising stars of the retro R&B revival. It’s the label’s first album exclusively dedicated to the genre. The 60s and 70s rhythm and blues of The Four Tops, Otis Redding and The Supremes, among others, became a global phenomenon and has inspired a new generation of artists who are reviving the classic soul sound.

Reaching mainstream popularity in the 1950s, rhythm and blues sprung from the rugged roots of blues and gospel music, pairing soulful vocals with pop sensibilities. While in recent years R&B has become more closely associated with rap and hip hop, legends and young artists are recreating the sound and mood of the genre’s glory days.
