ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hawaii Music Awards Winner!!!!!
Hawaiian slack-key guitarist and composer, Jim “Kimo” West brings his excellent performing and arranging skills to the table in this award-winning collection of slack key guitar Christmas songs. A stunning hand-painted block print cover by Caren Loebel-Fried tops off this attractive package.
Kimo is one of the few masters of this beautiful acoustic guitar style known as “ki ho’alu”, literally “loosen the string”. Besides performing traditional songs, he is best known for creating new compositions and tunings and his original slack key work has been featured in Disney TV movies, Honda commercials, documentaries and feature films.

Jim also works as a producer and composer for film and TV. Check out Jim’s “slack key” music at www.jimkimowest.com and his composer demos at www.myspace.com/jameskimowestcomposer

Kimo's Hawaiian Slack Key Christmas
Love this album. Mauna Kea Sleigh Ride, the only song I was unfamiliar with, is now one of my favorites. The familiar classics are all beautifully played and beautifully arranged, and are as warm as a cozy fire. Great cover artwork too. This CD travelled with me this Xmas so I could play it during family dinners. It got a lot of compliments. Highly recommended!

Kimo's Hawaiian Slack key Christmas
Beautiful job (again) by Kimo. My only complaint is that I had to enter the track data online myself. [grin] I assume because the album was so new. In any case, this album is terrific, like pretty much all of Kimo's slack key releases.

Kimo's Hawaiian Slack Key Christmas
"Delightful" "Cheery" "peaceful" "relaxing" These are all words I have heard used to describe this album, and from people of a wide variety of ages from teens to pensioners. Jim Kimo West has taken some well loved and familiar Christmas tunes and given them a very original make-over. The result is a delight that will extend long into the New Year and beyond, for he has lifted these tunes out of the pigeon-hole of seasonal music and made them great to listen to at any time of the year.
