The years 1945-1965 saw a radical and exciting shift in American popular music . Blues and swing jazz helped to produce a new musical form called rhythm and blues, which in turn set in motion the development of soul and funk, not to me ntion rock 'n' roll. What united these genres was an emphasis on the beat, or the groove, over the melody that would culminate in the syncopated monochord w orkouts of funk. Along the way, some of the greatest electric guitarists of th e postwar years explored the boundaries of the new instrument with a rich arra y of hot licks. This book/CD pack explores everything from the swinging boogie of Tiny Grimes, to the sweaty primal funk of Jimmy Nolen, to the styles of Mi ckey Baker, Billy Butler, Steve Cropper, Cornell Dupree, Jerry Jemmott, Curtis Mayfield, Ike Turne
