‘American Soul Connexion [Chapter 1]’: On November 18, 1954, by recording ‘I’ve got a Woman’, Ray Charles was injecting into the nascent Rhythm & Blues a dose of this unbridled swing, borrowed from the tradition of Spirituals. He laid the foundations of a new genre; Sam Cooke was going to bring the sweet intonations and velvety sounds inherited from his Gospel practice. Soul Music was born.
