Rico Rodriguez

Legendary Jamaican trombonist Rico Rodriguez created a signature sound on many reggae and ska albums. The septuagenarian leads the way through standards such as Jerry Johnson's "Jumbo Rock" and Sado Watanabe's "Eastern Island"; classic ska pieces including Don Drummond's "Eastern Standard Time"; and the theme from the television show Dr. Kildare. Rodriguez's own compositions, though, are the meat of the live album, as he revisits "This Day" and "Over the Mountain," two tracks he recorded on 1976's Man from Wareika.
