Album Notes
Tom Marion of Robert Crumb’s 1970’s band “The Cheap Suit Serenaders” is featured with the spirited Japanese Hot Jazz acoustic string band “The Sweet Hollywaiians” performing old time Swing, American, Italian, Hawaiian and Puerto Rican jazz and folk tunes.
The CD has expert playing by Tom and the band who have studied older styles made famous by the Italian’s Eddie Lang (Paul Whiteman Orchestra), Nick Lucas and the famous lap steel player Sol Hoopii. The CD is rich with mandolins, lap steel guitar, ukuleles, acoustic stand up bass, banjo, mandocello, mandola and of course guitars.
As a child Tom (who is Italian) learned traditional songs from his Sicilian grandfather and brings an authentic style to everything he plays. He currently can be heard on 4 of the amazing Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys 5 CDs playing guitar, mandolin and banjo.
The Sweet Hollywaiians (residing in Japan) are young Japanese fellows who have mastered 1920’s – 1940’s Hawaiian swing calypso.

'O Surdato 'nnammurato
fab album - love tha hawaiian sound and toms jazz guitar and vocals - come and play in the U.K. !!!

Ellen Ferlazzo

Most excellent!
This just arrived today and it's fantastic. Tom's in great form, as are (is?) the rest of the band. Tom got me playing mandolin many years ago so I'm a bit biased, but it's a great album regardless.

Robin Carpenter

Anyone who has enjoyed Tom Marion's sterling work with such artists as The Cheap Suit Serenaders, Janet Klein and Ian Whitcombe will love this album. His skills on guitar, mandolin and banjo are awesome; His enthusiasm, good taste and affection for the various musical styles on this disc, whether swing, hot jazz, hotter Hawaiian instrumentals or sentimental songs, come through on every track. He is more than ably supported by the wonderful Sweet Hollywaiians band, from Japan, whose own terrific album "Hula Girl", on which Tom also plays, is a companion piece. Get them both and give yourself a treat!

This is a beautiful gem. Sweet Hawaiian sounds coupled with traditional melodies and words makes this for truly enjoyable and timeless listening. Unique. I'm with Nick Powell above - Come and play in the UK!!
