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)
