to write a review

By Wayne Harada, Honolulu Advertiser Entertainment Writer

Wayne Takamine's second CD, "Touch" (Starsong Productions SSP 1028CD), is as gentle and relaxing as his debut but reflects continued growth and professionalism.A singer-guitarist, Takamine composed several tracks here dwelling on Island images and emotions. He also tosses in a handful of "covers," but manages to put his own imprint on them. Result: A reaffirmation that he's on his way as one of the Isles' genuine talents.

Makapu'u By the Sea" and "Hopes and Dreams" are among his creations, the former dwelling on the surf-and-sun Oahu locale, and the latter a love poem professing commitment. Expressive: Lovely instrumental "takes" of "Classical Gas" and "Killing Me Softly With His Song."

Ethnically exotic: A surprising yet satisfying "Shima Uta (Island Song)," a Japanese song with a lingering melody performed in the native tongue.Enchanting "This Moment Tonight" another of his compositions.
