In 1973, at only 16 years of age, he was the featured vocalist on Eddie Palmieri's Grammy-winning album "Sun Of The Latin Music." A year later he sang on "Unfinished Masterpiece", also with Palmieri, who gave him his new first name. Rodríguez also worked with Machito and Tommy Olivencia's group. In 1980, he "went solo." Lalo has been compared to other famous salseros like Eddie Santiago, José Alberto, and Frankie Ruiz.
