popular Jamaican dance music, the term reggae more properly denotes a particular music style that was strongly influenced by traditional mento as well as American jazz and rhythm and blues, especially the New Orleans R&B practiced by Fats Domino and Allen Toussaint, and evolved out of the earlier genres ska and rocksteady. The guitar in reggae usually plays on the off beat of the rhythm. It is common for reggae to be sung in Jamaican Patois, Jamaican English, and Iyaric dialects. Reggae is noted for its tradition of social criticism and religion in its lyrics, although many reggae songs discuss lighter, more personal subjects, such as love and socializing.

The term "rhythm and blues" was used by Billboard in its chart listings from June 1949 until August 1969, when its "Hot Rhythm & Blues Singles" chart was renamed as "Best Selling Soul Singles"  . However, it was not until he prepared a demo in 1954, that caught the attention of Specialty Records, that the world would start to hear his new, uptempo, funky rhythm and blues that would catapult him to fame in 1955 and help define the sound of rock 'n' roll. "The Origins of Ska, Reggae and Dub Music".

These early records were often termed calypso, but they were subtly different, drawing more on the collision of African and British music sources (as opposed to the merging of African with French or Spanish music prevalent in Trinidad), and they set forth a template that Jamaican music subsequently followed into a dizzying array of rhythmic forms, including ska, reggae, and dancehall.

The Inuence of Rhythm & Blues While mento was the main local style, the dominant music that urban Ja- maicans were dancing to during the 1950s was rhythm and blues imported from the United States. Like the rhythm- and-blues music upon which it was initially modeled, ska was marked by a dub 30, bouncy uptempo beat played in either straight or swung time, with the guitar and piano emphasizing the upbeats. By the rock steady period at the end of the 1960s, they had blended high musicianship, jazzy solos, accomplished singing, and meticulous songcraft in the synthesis of what might be thought of as Jamaicas perfectly formed pop song.

The definitive Jamaican ska band at their dizzyingly inventive peak, taking the island’s shuffling offbeat dance music into swinging jazz and Far Eastern territory. 3. Various - The Harder They Come. MOJO SAYS: The soundtrack to the film that took reggae to the world, top’n’tailed by singer/actor Jimmy Cliff’s tropical-pop title-track and hymnal Many Rivers To Cross. 2. Augustus Pablo - King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown. MOJO SAYS: Electronics wizard King Tubby chops up Augustus Pablo’s mournful productions on a DIY console built to terrify loudspeaker manufacturers.
