“The music we make is a reflection of our time. The past we dare not forget and the future, that – that we must lean to. Our duty to those who come after us and the richness of our lives today. We try to give from what we get.” Rosko Gee
Jamaican born bassist Rosko Gee was a go-to session cat on the 1970s London scene when reggae inspired everyone from classic rockers to the punks.
A fluid, soulful player with a blunt tone given to melodic and pocket passages, Gee anchored several seminal slabs with Traffic, Go – featuring Stomu Yamashta, Michael Shrieve, and Steve Winwood; Johnny Nash, Rebop, Can, Jim Capaldi, and Vivian Stanshall, among others.
Among Rosko’s weapons of choice are Fender Precision, and the StingRay MusicMan 5.
