Rico Rodriguez - The Legacy

Rico Rodriguez - The Legacy - a documentary by Jep Jorba, Miquel Àngel Arnáiz and Ester Casals. "...The life of Rico Rodriguez and the life of jamaican music are two faces of the same coin. They are like two parallel lines that passed through the time and the place. In the documentary 'Rico Rodriguez – The Legacy' the time is 2006 and the place is Barcelona. The old carribbean melodies of the 60's are performed by young musicians of the millenium, that take with pride the musical and spiritual legacy of this great trombonist. These beautiful melodies become the perfect soundtrack to review the biography of one of the most humble and compromised legends of Jamaican music."
