ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1. HAWAII CALLS – Na Hokupa (Harry Owens) 3:28
Na Hokupa, using close, multi-part harmony, brings this timeless classic to life. The group has been performing since 1987. They can be seen at various island locations including “Na Mele Nei.” Visit Na Hokupa’s website for details. “Hawaii Calls” reminds us to “dream awhile of the happy days we knew.” That’s what all of us who’ve been to Hawaii will do; we DREAM about our days in the sun, and yes, Hawaii does call us again and again.

2. KONA DAZE – Dennis Pavao (Malani Bilyeu) 4:21
Dennis Pavao is known as one of Hawaii’s “golden voices.” He has been voted “male vocalist of the year” multiple times and continues, through his recordings, to be one of Hawaii’s great vocal treasures. From the early ‘70s until 1978 Dennis recorded many albums with Hui Ohana. This rendition of the song “Kona Daze” was recorded in 1994 with Kalapana’s D.J. Pratt on guitar. www.tropicalmusichawaii.com

3. KAMALANI – Leilani Rivera Bond (Larry Rivera) 3:36
Leilani Rivera Bond is a kumu hula (hula teacher and dancer) who was born and raised on the island of Kaua’i. In her hula classes, she shares her love of Hawaiian culture and she really enjoys performing with her students. “Kamalani” was written by Leilani’s father, Larry Rivera, who also recorded the song. The selection is dedicated by Leilani to her first-born daughter, Kamalani. The translation of the title of her album is, “The Works of Love.”

4. TURTLE BAY RUM – Ka’ala (Anela Kahiamoe) 3:22
Ka’ala, a duo consisting of Franny Villareal & Anela Kahiamoe, were performing in the lobby bar of the Turtle Bay Resort. They had a very pleasing laid-back style and so we stopped to listen. We liked their sound and said, “Someday we’ll do something with you folks.” Well, today is the day! As you listen, pretend you’re joining us on a warm Hawaiian evening wearing a flower lei and sipping on “Turtle Bay Rum.”

5. MAUI, YOU’RE ON MY MIND – The Country Knights Band (Melia/Shafer/Loney/Andrews) 2:55
The Country Knights Band (Rob Loney, Jon Melia & Herb Andrews) have a unique, contemporary paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) sound. They live and work on “The Valley Isle” of Maui, so it’s natural that they would sing a tune about “home.” This song is requested many times each week by folks who long to be where the Knights live, the island of Maui. www.thecountryknightsband.com

6. WAIMEA – Cory Oliveros (Aaron Kimura) 4:06
Cory Oliveros can be seen and heard performing in and around Honolulu. This song, from his first solo project, features Wayne Wakai on alto sax and has a very contemporary groove as he sings the praises of Waimea’s harmony with nature, the sand and the sea. Should you run into Cory performing in Waikiki, tell him you heard him on “A Time for Aloha.” www.islandgroove.com

7. IN A LITTLE HULA HEAVEN – Teresa Bright (Leo Robin, Ralph Rainger) 4:00
Teresa Bright’s rendition of “In a Little Hula Heaven” is a “classic.” Teresa recorded it on her 1990 “Self Portrait” release and her version receives requests every week. The steel guitar solo features another Hawaiian legend, Eddie Palama. Teresa has won awards as a composer, producer and vocalist. www.tropicalmusichawaii.com

8. UKULELE BOOGIE – Brittni Paiva (Brittni Paiva) 2:14
Brittni Paiva is a very talented young lady from Hilo, Hawaii who began recording in early 2005 at age 15. Brittni won a Na Hoku Hanohano Award as the “most promising artist of the year” (2005) for her first album, “Brittni X 3.” The “3” refers to the fact that she played bass, slack key guitar and ukulele on the album. This song is from her second album titled, “HEAR...” It features Wendell Ching on drums, and Brittni on everything else. www.brittnipaiva.com

9. MOLOKA’I HOE – Na Kama Hele (Peter Apo) 3:01
Na Kama Hele combines both Hawaiians and “Hawaiians at heart” on this island chart-topper. Peter Apo’s mele (song) tells the story of one of Hawaii’s great canoe races which starts on the island of Moloka’i and finishes some 41 miles away on the island of Oahu. www.nakamahele.com

10. MY HAWAII – Scott Katsura (Scott Katsura) 4:51
Scott Katsura sings “No words can describe what’s felt in my heart.” This updated version of “My Hawaii” was taken from his award-winning album, “Aloha Miles Away” which won the Hawaii Music Award (2005, Pop Album of the Year). Scott’s smooth vocal style is contemporary and traditional at the same time. www.scottkatsura.com

11. ISLAND DAYS – PALI (Pali Tuan W. Ka’aihue) 3:59
PALI is an award-winning group that performs all over Hawaii. They were awarded a Hawaii Music Award (2005, Contemporary Album of the Year) for their album, “In Harmony.” The introduction to this original mele (song) is performed by slack key guitar master, John Keawe, who continues to provide a solid backing for PALI as they tell us about Island Days. www.pali.net

12. E KU’U MORNING DEW–Ku’uipo Kumukahi (Eddie Kamae & Larry Kimura) 3:41
Ku’uipo Kumukahi, often called the sweetheart of Hawaiian music, has been part of Aloha Radio’s rotation since day one (1994). In her award-winning recordings you can sense a deep reverence for Hawaiian culture. She is an accomplished guitar player, composer, producer, and vocalist. Ku’uipo closes this compilation with the perfect word, ALOHA. www.ekuuipo.com
