Lynn Taitt was born as Nerlynn Taitt in Trinidad and came to Jamaica in 1962 to participate in the independence celebrations. He decided to stay on in Kingston and became an instrumental guitarist in the crafting of the rocksteady sound. Taitt often lead and arranged the sessions he participated in. Lynn Taitt passed away on January 20, 2010.
For this show, I start off with some of Taitt's earlier ska tunes and progress through his rocksteady work, showing the common thread he sowed through the sound of the era.
