Album Review

A collection of live recordings from the great "Jawaiian" (Hawaiian reggae) artist Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, this album has tracks culled from various tours between 1993 and 1997, mostly songs on the slower side of the spectrum for Iz. The tone is mellow, emitting the friendly vibe that so characterized the great singer. The album starts out with some light, slow numbers to set the mood, and after a few songs kicks up to a full-fledged bit of Jawaiian reggae with "Margarita," complete with some keyboard hits to stand in for an organ. A couple of spoken bits from concerts follow, leading into "E Ala E" and a quite happy rendition of "Hene Hene Kou Aka." The tempo drops again for a number of love songs, before eventually returning to "Maui Hawaiian Sup'pa Man." The album finishes with a pair of light numbers, including "Hawai'i Aloha" as a closing farewell song. For a nice overview of Iz's versatility, this isn't a bad album, but for a better look at the typical forms of Jawaiian music, other albums such as E Ala E or N Dis Life might be better choices.

A Heart of Gold

Aloha, I remember this concert, it wasn't in 2000 but before I left the islands. The Waikiki Shell was packed as we and most of Hawai'i sat on the lawn right outside to hear his voice. When he passed, all roads headed west following the semi carrying his ash. I grew up with his music, felt like a big brother ... I'm glad he is on itunes for others to enjoy. Mahalo, a hui hou.

Amazing and tranquil....

I've never been a fan of Hawaiian music, however, today I downloaded 4 albums of Bruddah Iz's and can't find a single song that I don't like. Wow. I'm so glad I found him to enjoy!

Iv'e been listening to brudda iz for about six years now and as far as hawaiian music goes there are few who come close to him. If you like brudda iz check out The Makaha sons he was a part of them before he went out on his own. Others you should consider are Hapa,Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu,and Keali'i Reichel.

Born in the Honolulu suburb of Kaimuki, Kamakawiwo'ole later moved to nearby Makaha. In allegiance to his new home, Israel formed the Makaha Sons of Ni'ihau with brother...
