Can't do it--too many good tunes and interesting arrangements. Whatever is running through my head at the moment. [Must do laundry. Buy cat food.] Oh, never mind.

On Dennis Kamakahi's solo CD "Pua'ena" he does two tunes Waikiki Hula (the Isaac Keola one) and his own composition Na Kupa O Wai'anae which have the warmest richest voicings I can think of by anyone. Anyway, to 'these ears' they are so sweet...the combination of his particular tuning, amount of slacking, and then the fingerings, makes a unique sound, eh?

One of my favorites is "He Aloha No `O Honolulu" by Robert Keli`iho`omalu, Jr. Simple and clean rendition...

It's an interesting question, but I'm sort of with Rus on my answer. Everytime I think of a particular song, 2 or 2 others come up as "Yeah, but what about." My flavor of the week is Steve Sano's version of Ku'u Lei Awapuhi. New flavor next week.

instrumental Po Mahina in D tuning by Cyril Pahinui. Syncopated bass makes this song unique.

Kohala Mountain Road - John Keawe

Traditional, but expressive, original and technically masterful.

Ray Kane's "Punahele" and Ledward Ka'apana's "Radio Hula" pop into the empty space between the ears. It's all good. How do you compare apples to oranges to grapes to Swiss chard?

I like (1) Pohakuloa by Moses Kahumoku, (2) Punahele by Ray Kane, and (3) Moe U'hane by Sonny Chillingworth, along with hundreds of others.

Any version of Hi'ilawe from Cyril makes my skin bumpy.. and almost anytime Dennis Kamakahi sings I get the same reaction... there is a short clip on the Eddie Kamae: Sons of Hawaii documentary where Dennis sings part of a tune, I have no idea what the song is, but as soon as I heard it... chicken skin... smooth, full, wow... it was just him and another guy outside, it wasn't the footage with David his son. Love it all.
