Goodnight Rico

A 2 track reggae single (7m 38s) — released December 18th 2015 on Red Earth Music

Goodnight Rico is a tribute to the eminent Jamaican trombonist Rico Rodriguez who passed away on September 2015. Featuring a beautiful, plaintive horns melody and one drop bounce that characterised many of Rico's seminal recordings. Soothsayers horns have channelled their treasured memories of performing onstage with Rico into this composition. The track features great solo trombone by Harry Brown as well as Idris Rahman on Tenor Saxophone and Robin Hopcraft's trumpet all deftly enhanced by a fine studio performance from Soothsayers' band. Mixing is in the experienced hands of Nick Manasseh who subtly frees the cut's diverse sonic layers and taking the flipside to the outer reaches of the "dub -o -sphere"
