Tommy Rodriguez is one of the pioneer Jazz Musicians in Mexico and he outstands as one of the most important Sax-Players of the 20th century in our country Mexico.....CONACULTA (Mexico`s National Bureau of Culture & Arts).
Texts from the liner notes of researcher Luc Delannoy, author of the book CALIENTE Una Historia de Jazz Latino published by Fondo de Cultura EconĂłmica in 2001:
At age 70, legendary saxophonist and flutist Tommy RodrĂ-guez shows once again he is a pioneer. In October 2001 he invited his 10-year-old big band - 19 musicians and a vocalist - to gather in a local studio. Together, in one single day, they recorded one of the most original albums in Mexico in the last few years. New jazz recordings by big bands are rare in Mexico; therefore this album should be welcomed with pride by the jazz community.
