Na Lani O Maui-Maui Skies
'as evocative as it's title promises; the liquid flow of West's guitar achieves that perfect balance of caressing the ears while awakening the mind to pictures of blankets of clouds hovering over a bed of blue ocean.' All About Jazz 12/1/2011 . This collection of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian 'slack key' guitar instrumentals speaks of the warm trade winds, sparkling blue oceans and the peaceful sunsets that are part of everyday life in Hawai'i. Jim 'Kimo' West has been playing and recording slack key guitar for over twenty five years and and has a number of awards to his credit. He can often be found in Hana, Maui, at any of the state's slack key festivals and perhaps having some 'kau kau' at one of the island's ubiquitous food stands!
