His death will probably be overshadowed by news that verteran producer Sonia Pottinger has also passed away on the same day.
Stewart is best known for his duet work with Enid Cumberland as Keith and Enid and any self respecting collector of early Jamaican music will have some of the tunes they recorded on Chris Blackwell’s first record company the R&B imprint or the labels they were largely released on in the UK – Starlite & Blue Beat. Keith Stewart also recorded for S.L. Smith, Byron Lee, Neville Hinds and WIRL records.
Keith Stewart also recorded a number of Tourist orientated Calypso Lps and 45s.
