It even goes beyond these roots to Europe, Asia, Africa, and to wherever the music calls.
Jive's companion website ( onlinerootsofrock.com ) uses a graphic 350-year timeline to show the lasting influence of the Pilgrim Fathers and black slaves on the development of music in America. One hundred years of American music from 1865 to 1965 is particularly scrutinized -- from a Rock 'n' Roll perspective. A free 12-page Jive Sampler is downloadable from this site.
Jive shows, in a fun way, why Rock `n' Roll, like no other music, belongs to the world.
