CAROLINE/UNIVERSAL. CD/DL

Three years before becoming The Specials’ trombonist in 1979, half-Cuban JA emigré Rico Rodriguez sculpted this masterpiec­e of explorator­y Afro/ jazz/reggae instrument­als between London and Kingston, thus evoking both his rusticRast­a background (see title), and a Grace Jones-esque transatlan­tic sophistica­tion. This bolts on a dub album, plus out-there outtakes – a superb epitaph.
