Aikanes (for my friends)
It's finished at last. For years my friends have asked me to record
an album. Now I have! I have tried my very best to create the quality
and ambiance of my musical repertoire heard at my performances.
I have been playing Hawaiian music since 1939. My goal is to create,
through my music, an avenue to share my love of the instrument with
my friends. Encouraged by them, I decided to produce this recording
and dedicate it to their long-term support.
No, this isn't a new recording. However it's 1998 and people are
asking for compact disks.
Gather your senses of mind and soul and enjoy!
This is a wonderfully relaxing CD. Jimmy's
finesse stems from his lifelong love of the Hawaiian steel guitar and Hawaiian music. The accompaniment
is traditional ukulele and bass, and Jimmy often double-tracks his
steel to provide the sense of a steel guitar duet. Very pretty!
