At the exibhition I met with Legendary jamaican  trombonist 🎺 Vin Gordon.

Vin began his career in 1964 with The Skatalies

He became the main trombonist of Studio One and he recorded for all major producers of Jamaican music in ska rocksteady and reggae .

At Studio One Gordon met Lee Perry and played with many reggae artists during the rock steady years. He played on records by Bibi Seaton, The Heptones, Bob Andy and Keith Hudson. From 1965 to 1978 he was Bob Marley’s trombonist and performed on albums such as Kaya and Exodus. 👊🏾respect
