Smoke Notes

In 1993, the late Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole recorded 'Facing Future', the top-selling Hawaiian album of all time. IZ was gifted with a sweet, tender voice that moves the soul. As if that wasn't enough, he also played ukulele proficiently.

After his tragically early death in 1997, producer Jon de Mello meticulously assembled and notated 'Alone in IZ World'. It contains alternate versions of Kamakawio'ole's best known and much loved songs, plus previously unheard gems. Posthumously, this has become as much a favourite album as 'Facing Future' was and stands as a fine legacy to his work.

Iz was famous for his repertoire of Hawaiian songs, but as this collection emphasizes, he liked to also tackle standards, in his own inimitable way. Included are the playful "Mona Lisa," and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," on which IZ harmonises beautifully in his own unique way. His version of "Over the Rainbow" (which was heard in the movies 'Meet Joe Black' and 'Finding Forrester', an 'E.R.' episode and in the Dulux colour paint ad) is as pure and emotional as singing can get.

'Alone in IZ World' is classic "world" music and comes highly recommended!
