In the late forties, record companies labelled commercial black music "race music". Eventually, Jerry Wexler, then working at Billboard magazine as a reporter, thought of the phrase, "rhythm and blues" and it caught on. Before long, numerous other descriptions appeared - Motown, the Philadelphia Sound, Soul - but all had in common that the music expressed the rising aspirations of the ghetto.
