Format: Audio CD
This is a sort of split CD that features 14 selections from THE KALIMA BROTHERS (featuring Jesse Kalima) and 11 selections from the RICHARD KAUHI QUARTET. The Kalima Brothers offer a mix of Hawaiian songs and lounge songs with 4 impressive virtuoso performances from Jesse Kalima on the ukulele (STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER, JALOUSIE, DARK EYES and UNDER THE DOUBLE EAGLE) If you are a uke fan, these four pieces alone are worth the price of the CD. There are some rousing harmonies on the Hawaiian pieces. The Richard Kauhi Quartet is enjoyable and Kauhi is an extremely talented pianist. These 11 selections are a mix of lounge love ballads and Hawaiian. The whole offering is pleasant listening, but Jesse Kalima's ukulele work is definitely the highlight! Jesse is another early pioneer of the solo ukulele along with Eddie Kamae. The recording quality is good.
