Clement "Coxsone" Dodd

Real Name:
Clement Seymour Dodd
Profile:
Born: Jan 26, 1932, Kingston, Jamaica.
Died: May 4, 2004, Kingston, Jamaica of a heart attack.

Legendary Jamaican producer, recording pioneer and music entrepeneur, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd established the famous Studio One Studio and record label at 13 Brentford Road, Kingston, in 1963 after making his name in the island's competitive sound system scenario where he would play imported records and exclusively recorded dub plates [originally on 78s] to win over the audiences. In recognition of the importance of Mr. Dodd and his studio the street was renamed by the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation (the city government) to Studio One Boulevard on May 1st, 2004 from Brentford Road, four days before his sudden death. Dodd was behind many other labels, such as DownBeat, ND Records (2), C & N, Sabastians, Sensational, Coxsone Records, Cariboo, Wincox Records, Muzik City Records, D Darling, Supreme Records (10), Rolando & Powie, Worldisc, Money Disc, and Coxson.

Was Clement "Coxsone" Dodd a genius? This is hard to say, probably not a musical genius, perhaps more a business genius or an inspiration to others. However, his towering influence over Jamaican music is unparallelled. Just take a look at this list of artists that cut their teeth at Coxsone's legendary Studio One Studios and it becomes obvious that he had something special; The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo, Ernest Ranglin, Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, The Maytals, Marcia Griffiths, The Heptones, The Ethiopians, Burning Spear, The Abyssinians, Augustus Pablo, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Sugar Minnot, Denis Alcapone, Willie Williams, Freddie McGregor, Ken Boothe, Horace Andy, Derrick Harriot, Dennis Brown and many, many more.
