Editorial Reviews

'Somewhere Over The Rainbow' collects some of Hawaiian ukulele player Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's most famous songs. His reworking of 'Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World' propelled Kamakawiwo'ole into the public eye after appearing on numerous film and television soundtracks. The album features his unique covers as well as a selection of traditional Hawaiian songs. Available for the first time ever, the definitive collection of Hawaiian music legend -- the gentle giant behind the world-renowned version of `Over The Rainbow', one of the most recognised songs of the last twenty years. Over a decade after his death, his unforgettable music and legacy are captured here in these beautiful renditions of `What A Wonderful World' and `Wind Beneath My Wings' alongside traditional Hawaiian melodies on this truly breathtaking new album.

Love his voice and all songs were a joy to listen to. We finally found the singer that sang that so so beautifully along with the Ukelele.

His voice will haunt you for a long time. His passing is a sad loss because I have only recently discovered his music, and his oh so unique voice.

Iz does it best in this album. Great orchestral arrangements; somewhere over the rainbow and wonderful world are excellent renditions.

I've always loved Iz's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". I think the version on this CD is shorter than others I have heard. The other songs are great. Listing to this CD reminds me of everything I love about Hawai'i'.

IZ's "Over the Rainbow" is one of my favorite covers of this song. I bought a copy for me and one for my dad. I enjoy it very much. I can only feel happy when listening to it.
