This is the first album ever recorded of duets between Hawaiian acoustic steel and slack-key guitars. Isaacs, whose professional career began in 1948, cut electric steel duets in the '50s with his brother Atta and with Gabby Pahinui. He usually serves up a very quiet kind of reverie; even his "hot" playing, on songs like this CD's "Hula Blues," demonstrates softness and subtlety. The young Kuo's style works better as support than when he's out front. Together, they not only conjure up a bygone era in Hawaiian music, but they bring it into modern times. --John Morthland

I own about 10 Hawaiian music CDs, and this one is my all-time favorite. It's perfectly relaxing and mellow. Just hearing the first chord is enough to (mentally) transport me to a secluded beach on Maui.

This recording is an absolute gem. Two unique forms of Hawaiian guitar music, slack key and Hawaiian steel, are combined and played by two masters from hawaii. If you enjoy acoustic guitar, dobro, or blue grass finger picking music, this CD is a must. If you like to listen to Spanish or acoustic jazz guitar, this CD is a must. If you enjoy Hawaii, or maybe you have never heard true Hawaiian guitar music, this CD is a must. The recording is very high quality and captures the subtleties of both musicians and their instruments.

The best example of Ki ho`alu and Steel Guitar existing. I fell for this the first time I heard it and would love to see more similar recordings. Unfortunately Uncle Barney has passed and Dancing Cat (George Winston) has folded its tent. George Kuo is still touring and producing wonderful ki ho`alu, currently with Aaron Mahi and Martin Pahinui.

I just knew I would love this CD, and it even surpassed my greatest expectations! These duets, with just an acoustic steel guitar played by an older master, Alvin "Barney" Isaacs, Jr. and one of the younger generation's great slack key players, George Kuo, create a most beautiful blending of old and new sounds.
This CD is so beautiful you will be hoping it will never end. I can only hope they will record more of such dreamy and easy-listening Hawaiian music. In my estimation, together they make one of the sweetest sounds this side of heaven!! Do bless us again real soon, Barney and George!!
