It was the massive internal migration from the South during and just after the Second World War that made New York a mecca for rhythm and blues. The whole city was ablaze with talent during the 50s, when musicians came in their droves. Old style country bluesmen, hip cool jazz players, crooners and balladeers, jump n jive groups, solo performers there was more than enough work for everybody. And behind after them came the record companies, each one looking to promote talent and make money. . The melting pot of styles and musical approaches helped to form the new mainstream of the 60s: Ssoul.
