Trombonist Nambo Robinson Pass Away

Trombonist Ronald “Nambo” Robinson, a prolific session musician who worked with reggae's greats, died this morning at his St Andrew home. He was 67.

Robinson's wife, Marcia, told the OBSERVER ONLINE that he died at 1:00 am but did not give a cause of death.

From East Kingston, Robinson started his career with Mystic Revelation of Rastafari. He was a founding member of the 809 Band, which also included his longtime friend, saxophonist Dean Fraser; singer Desi “Desi Roots” Young and bassist Michael Fletcher.

Robinson was also a longstanding member of Sly and Robbie's Taxi Gang. He played on several of the duo's biggest hit songs such as Baltimore by The Tamlins and Bull Inna The Pen by Black Uhuru.

Robinson got his big break in the late 1970s by playing on Survival and Confrontation, two of Bob Marley's albums.

Buffalo Soldier, Trench Town and Wake Up And Live are among the Marley songs Robinson played.

Ronald “Nambo” Robinson is survived by his wife and three children.
