Recensione album

Imagine this: a Hawaiian band that could play gritty, Tower of Power-influenced funk one minute and instrumental jazz fusion the next, and often expressed a Christian viewpoint.

In their peak, Seawind produced only three albums, but Pauline and husband/drummer Bob released an album in the early...
