Generoso “Tojo” Jimenez (July 17, 1917 in Cruces, Cuba - September 15, 2007 in Coral Gables, Florida) was a famous Cuban trombone player and a pioneer of Cuban popular music. He was also the trombonist for the legendary Cuban bandleader and singer, Beny More.
In 1939, together with flutist, Efrain Loyola and violinist, Gilberto de la Rosa, founded the Orquesta Ritmica. He initially stayed in Cuba after Fidel Castro took over the government in 1959 and recorded in 1965 El Trombon Majadero, considered a classic in Cuban music. He later fell out of favor with the Cuban government and stopped playing the trombone and became a roaming street vendor.
In 2003, he was allowed to attend the Grammy ceremony in New York City where one of his records had been nominated. A few months later he returned to the United States and remained. He picked up his trombone and his career was reborn.
His last recording was for Gloria Estefan’s album 90 Millas.
"Even though this CD includes a brilliantly arranged melange of musical genres, the true highlight remains the exquisite piano, bass, sax, trumpet, percussion and trombone improvisations. These recordings give more than ample proof of the trombone's capacity to sing as a melodically expressive instrument." - Helio Orovio, Havana, September 2006.
