1/29/16 Reading Notes: Brackett Ch. 20-21 Pop, Rock, and Soul By David Brackett 20. From Rhythm and Blues to Rock ‘n’ Roll Intro - Rock ‘n’ Roll vs Rhythm and Blues (according to Ray Charles) Rock ‘n’ Roll was targeted at teens and had a more fun tone, while Rhythm and Blues (R&B) was targeted towards adults and had a much more serious tone. - R&B was heavily associated with African American artists. Little Richard, Fats Domino, and Chuck Berry especially were dedicated to creating a new brand of R&B that would cross racial lines, and appeal to teens of various races o Berry crossed racial lines by playing guitar instead of piano, and by writing about things all teens (despite race) experience, such as cars, dating, and high school “Chuck Berry: Rock Lives!” by Norman Japling - Biggest hit was “Maybellene”, which Chuck himself brands as an upbeat country song - Focused on only writing about things he’s experienced, because it’s make them easier to relate to - Chuck is not only a musician, but also owns his own music corporation and publishers, and Berry Park; an amusement park 21. Little Richard Intro - Came from a rural background, Pentecost church greatly influenced his singing. - Played piano, and his playing style originates from boogie-woogie style - Captivated performer! Wore a nice bit of makeup, flashy/loud clothing, and ended up increasing the spirit of cross dressing and debatable sexuality - Upon receiving a vision he suddenly quit his career to pursue ministry “from The Life and time of Little Richard: The Quasar of Rock” by Charles White - People sang as a mean to feel connected to God, and lessen the burden of their problems - Battle of the Gospels Go from church to church singing, and sometimes competing - Very much into ministry, wanted to be a pastor, and loved going to Pentecost churched for their music. AKA War Hawk because he sang really loudly at very high pitches - The beginning of his rise to fame was rough, as his sound didn’t match his appearance or typical stage presence…until recorders discovered his wild and energetic piano playing style Hit “Tutti Frutti”…sadly white stations wouldn’t play his version, only Boone’s version, giving him credit - Redemption from Tutti Frutti flop came through Long Tall Sally, which came from a little girl who travelled all the way from Mississippi with a few words on a piece of paper - Richard dressed wildly to convince white parents he was harmless - Shows were wild, very successful, and 90% white crowds (broke racial barriers)
