Emmanuel Rodriguez (Rico, Reco, El Reco) (born October 17, 1934 in Kingston, Jamaica) was the (nearly) undisputed best trombonist of early Jamaican music. By the age of 10, he had learned to play the trombone from strict nuns. In the 50s, Rico became a Rasta and became closely musically related to Rasta drummer Count Ossie. He recorded with many producers including Prince Buster or Lloyd 'Matador' Daley. In 1961, Rodriguez moved to the UK. He continued to play in reggae bands in England. In 1976 Rico recorded under contract with Island Records his most important album Man From Warieka.
