Jamaican producer born 1934. Died June 6, 2001 at the age of 67 years.

He left Jamaica in the early 70s and only returned a handful of times to visit family and friends.

Mr. Calnek is best-known for his [l=Caltone] and [l=JonTom] (in honor of [a=Johnny Moore] and [a=Tommy McCook]) record labels that featured some of the best rocksteady songs ever recorded. He had briefly been the touring/road manager for [a=Skatalites, The] up until [a=Don Drummond]’s demise, and used this connection to McCook and [a=Lynn Taitt] to then go into producing records. The last Skatalites tune proper (sans Drummond) was produced under his tutelage.
