“All That Hawaiian Jazz” features nine tracks all of which are smooth, relaxing and unique interpretations of hapa haole classics (songs about Hawai’i written in the English language) and jazz standards, including the timeless “Stardust” and an initmate, all-Spanish rendition of Ernesto Duarte Brito’s “Como Fue”. The album also features a never-been-done-before medley of some of the late Israel Kamakawiwoole’s (“Iz”) most popular recordings. Recorded in both Hawai’i and Tokyo, Japan, “All That Hawaiian Jazz” also showcases some of Hawai’i’s most reputable and accomplished musicians, including: Grammy® award-winning guitarist, Jeff Peterson; Dan Del Negro (piano/keyboards); Mark Tanouye (bass) and von Baron (drums).
