When talking about Ska Music one group of musicians whose name always comes to the forefront of the conversation are The Skatalites. Formed around 1965 and named originally after the Soviet space satellite which was big news at the time and with a little help from band member Tommy McCook, making a play on the characteristic ‘Ska’ sound made by the guitar when following the ‘after beat’ of the music. The band would have a name to go with its distinctive musical style.
The time span of the Skatilites career considering their output of hundreds of tunes was a relatively short one of around two years. The line up consisted of Don Drummond (Trombone), Roland Alphonso (Tenor Saxophone), Tommy McCook (Tenor Saxophone), Johnny ‘Dizzy Moore (Trumpet), Lester Sterling (Alto Saxophone), Jerome ‘Jah Jerry’ Hines (Guitar), Jackie Mittoo (Piano), Lloyd Brevett (Bass),and Lloyd Knibbs (Drums). We have caught a great set of tunes that the band cut at the legendary Treasure Isle Studio’s, built out of wood and positioned above Duke Reids liquour store it somehow worked in getting a great sound out of the band or maybe it was in intimidating sight of Duke Reid and his ever present loaded gun that he carried at all times that provided some inspiration!!.
