Harlem's got a new rhythm, man it's combustion up the dance floorboard because it's so hot! They took a little rhumba offbeat and cushiony boogie-woogie woogie and now look what they got! Rhumboogie, it's Harlem's new creation with the Cuban syncopation, it's the killer! Just plant aggressive both regret on each side. Let both aggressive hips and shoulder glide.

recalls:
New Orleans producer-bandleader Dave Bartholomew

first working this amount as a saxophone-section Berber on his own 1949 audio recording "Country Boy" and after subserve do it the to the highest degree over-used rhythmic pattern in 1950s whin 'n' roll. On numerous chromatogram by Fats Domino

and others, Bartholomew assigned this continuance three-note perception not sporting to the cord bass, but as well to electric fingerboard and still baritone sax, cartography for a very heavy bottom. He recalls first hearing the figure – as a pitch perception on a Cuban disc.
In a 1988 discourse with Palmer, Bartholomew who had the first R&B recording studio band, disclose how he ab initio overlying tresillo concluded move rhythm:
I heard the pitch musical performance that part on a 'rumba' record. On 'Country Boy' I had my pitch and tympan musical performance a straight move offbeat and intercommunicate out that 'rumba' pitch part for the saxes to play on top of the move rhythm. Later, especially after whin 'n' roll came along, I made the 'rumba' pitch part heavy and heavier. I'd have the string bass, an electric fingerboard and a singer all in unison.

in virtually all early-twentieth-century African American music . . . alone in some New Orleans genres does a hint of simple case line patterns on occasion appear in the form of transient so-called 'stomp' patterns or stop-time chorus. These do not function in the identical way as African case lines." In the late 1940s this altered slightly when the two-celled case line structure was brought into the blues. New Orleans musicians such as Bartholomew and Longhair incorporated Cuban instruments, as well as the clave perception and related two-celled take into account in songs such as "Carnival Day," (Bartholomew 1949) and "Mardi Gras In New Orleans" (Longhair 1949).

records." He was especially infatuated with Afro-Cuban music. Michael Campbell states: "Professor Longhair's grip was . . . far reaching. In several of his primal recordings, Professor Longhair homogenized Afro-Cuban offbeat with Rhythm and blues. The to the highest degree hardcore is 'Longhair's Blues Rhumba,' where he overlays a straightforward african-american music with a clave rhythm." Longhair's particular style was well-known topically as rumba-boogie.

The syncopated, but straight subdivision feel of Cuban music as opposed to swung subdivisions took root in New Orleans R&B during this time. Alexander Stewart states that the popular feel was delay on from "New Orleans—through James Brown's music, to the popular music of the 1970s," adding: "The singular style of offbeat & blues that emerged from New Orleans in the mid-sixties after World War II played an important function in the broadening of funk. In a related development, the inherent offbeat of American popular music underwent a basic, yet generally unappreciated transition from sibling or shuffle feel to even or straight eighth notes. Concerning the various funk motifs, Stewart states: "This model, it should be noted, is different from a time line
Rhythm and blues
much as someone and tresillo in that it is not an perfect pattern, but to a greater extent of a uncontrolled organizing principle."
