Iz in Concert

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
A collection of live recordings from the great "Jawaiian" Hawaiian reggae artist Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, this album has tracks culled from various tours between 1993 and 1997, mostly songs on the slower side of the spectrum for Iz. The tone is mellow, emitting the friendly vibe that so characterized the great singer. The album starts out with some light, slow numbers to set the mood, and after a few songs kicks up to a full-fledged bit of Jawaiian reggae with "Margarita," complete with some keyboard hits to stand in for an organ. A couple of spoken bits from concerts follow, leading into "E Ala E" and a quite happy rendition of "Hene Hene Kou Aka." The tempo drops again ...

A couple of spoken bits from concerts follow, leading into "E Ala E" and a quite happy rendition of "Hene Hene Kou Aka." The tempo drops again for a number of love songs, before eventually returning to "Maui Hawaiian Sup'pa Man." The album finishes with a pair of light numbers, including "Hawai'i Aloha" as a closing farewell song. For a nice overview of Iz's versatility, this isn't a bad album, but for a better look at the typical forms of Jawaiian music, other albums such as E Ala E or N Dis Life might be better choices.

    What can I say about IZ

    I love Iz! I have most of his recordings and find them addictive. He is original, a one of a kind and the world is better for it. His spirit and gentleness shine through on some of the tracks as well as his humor and love of mankind. His laugh (often heard in the background) will make you smile too.

    NOT &quot Jawaiian&quot

    Please get it straight. Israel Kamakawiwo'ole did not perform &quot Jawaiian&quot songs. He sang traditional, classic and contemporary songs, but turning them into reggae music was not what he did. His music is Hawaiian -- not &quot Jawaiian.&quot

    Iz speaks to us in this CD

    The fact that you hear Iz's wonderful voice between the songs brings you even closer to this music legend.

    I wish he was still alive...

    I feel sadness everytime I hear his sweet voice. I miss him and wish I got to know him and heard his music before he passed away. I would have loved to have gone to his concerts here in the mainland. One of a kind!!!

    What A loss

    From a family of great musicians came the one with the most alluring voice, of his people and of the world! His funeral was the largest gathering ever held in Maui. A sad loss...
