Roland Al and The Soul Brothers: Dr. Ring-A-Ding

Ska was heavily influenced by American jazz and R&B, and Roland Alphonso brought a coolness and sophistication to many ska sessions in the mid-1960s. I listened to a lot of ska back in high school, at a time in my life when I had not heard much jazz. So you could say that in a roundabout way, it was through Roland Alphonso that I was first exposed to some of the concepts and sounds of jazz saxophone.
