Lloyd Brevett, a founding member of The Skatalites, passed away on May 3 in Jamaica.  He was 80.  With the band, he played double bass and also produced 2 of their albums.   Ska was his passion, and he traveled the world playing his music with the band.  The attached is a live version of “Peanut Vendor”.  As I always say, live music is the best way to listen to anyone, and this song will take you deep into summer.
