I note a comment appended to the pre-1920 St. Louis Blues on YouTube:
'Is it just me or do I hear "rock n roll" influences in a lot of these real old songs.'
I don’t think so. What you hear is some syncopation as Jazz and Ragtime was being developed. Some from Africa, some from the South American influence, etc. But no R&R influence. That beat came separately in the early 50s.
