ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
DEEPER BLUE shows Kohala’s evolution while influences of folk, jazz, and life in Hawaii continue to serve as a foundation and musical inspiration for the three members of this Big Island acoustic guitar trio: GRAMMY Award-winningCharles Michael Brotman, Charlie Recaido, and new member Rupert Tripp, Jr.

Since the release of their last album, "Cool Breeze", lead guitarist Brotman has won the first GRAMMY Award ever given for Hawaiian music (Best Hawaiian Music Album). Brotman produced the GRAMMY Award-winning CD "Slack key Guitar Volume 2", and both he and Recaido performed on the CD, which debuted at number one on Billboard’s world Music Chart. As the trio evolves, their structure stays basically the same. Brotman plays the melody line on nylon strings in his classical-style, and Recaido and Tripp create a unique chordal texture with their exquisite finger-style acoustic guitar playing on steel strings. The combination of the trio’s diverse musical infl uences establishes their own distinct sound—an acoustic blend of contemporary hawaiian, folk and jazz.

This one sparkles and charms!
One of my very favorite memories is a trip I took to Hawaii several years ago. With the very first note of DEEPER BLUE I was instantly transported back to the white sands and gently breaking waves, sipping fresh pineapple juice; without a care in the world. With this exquisite CD, Kohala (pronounced Ko-hall-ah) is able to transport listeners to an auditory world that is pure and natural in its beauty. Influences of folk, jazz and life in Hawaii continue to serve as the foundation and musical inspiration on this seventh release by the guitar trio whose members include Charles Michael Brotman, (who, in 2005, won the first Grammy Award given for Hawaiian music - Best Hawaiian Music Album) handling the melody on nylon string classical guitar; Charlie Recaido; and newest addition, Rupert Tripp, on steel strings. The title track is sublime - a gorgeous melody and dazzling guitar work make this one of the album's standout cuts. "Samba del Sol" follows and once again we are treated to impressive finger work in a delightful piece of music. With some lively percussion added to the mix, "Lime Twist" is another favorite. It's breezy and lighthearted and guaranteed to make you feel good all over. "The Wish" showcases the beauty of simplicity, highlighting the radiance of "less is more." Like the pristine beaches of the Hawaiian Pacific itself, DEEPER BLUE sparkles, charms and casts an unwavering spell that you'll never want to break free of. ~ BETH LEWIS
