Barry Rogers

Barry Rogers - trombone (1935 - 1991)

Barry Rogers is widely recognized as being the most influential trombone soloist in New York's formative Salsa scene from the early 1960's through the late 80's. The sound which he created transformed the way the trombone has been used in Latin music and still resonates today as his influence on contemporary players is evident.

He developed his style during several years with Eddie Palmieri, a collaboration that resulted in over a dozen recordings, some stellar arrangements, and one Grammy award. He also lent his talents to albums by The Fania All-Stars, Machito, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri, Cheo Feliciano, Johnny Pacheco, Manny Oquendo's “Libre”, and many more.
