Slack Key Jazz is the first recording of classic jazz paired with the nahe nahe (sweet) sounds of solo slack key guitar. From Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin and Dave Brubeck to George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Norah Jones; the great American songbook is poetically retold with the resonant sounds of slack key. The open guitar tunings (slack key) create exquisite warmth and set the stage for breathtaking improvisation true to the spirit of both Hawaiian music and Jazz.
