Overview

Hawaiian swing masters Big Kahuna & the Copa Cat Pack entertain you on 14 great songs that span the musical style spectrum. Included are the theme songs from the television series Hawaii Five-O and I Dream of Jeannie, each with new arrangements by Matt Catingub, and such priceless standards as Duke Ellington's 1932 hit "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" and "Avalon." This well-organized ensemble of professional instrumentalists outlines melody and harmony in swinging rhythmic arrangements and jams freely on such rousing numbers as "Shake Those Hula Hips" and "Fever." Joined by such great vocalists as Rosemary Clooney, Debby Boone, and the Waters (Julie, Maxine, and Orrin), and with Jennifer Lovejoy on baritone saxophone on selected titles, Big Kahuna & the Copa Cat Pack will have you up doing the lindy hop or just listening to the great instrumentalists. Despite the fact that there is not one clarinet player (a staple in most swing bands) on this program, the swing era is alive and well on Shake Those Hula Hips. In comparision to Hawaiian Swing, listeners now have an extra musical dimension to enjoy due to the addition of superb vocals by Clooney, Boone, and the Waters.

The BIG KAHUNA is back with an album that shakes and stirs the flavors of big band swing, Hawaiian songs, TV thems, Las Vegas lounge, and full-strenght party music into a big, tasty, mightily swinging, musical Mai Tai. An artful arranger, masterful saxophonist, hip crooner and animated bandleader, the BIG KAHUNA (aka Matt Catingub) packs fun and excitement into each and every swinging note. So spin this CD, put on your favorite Hawaiian shirt, grab a Mai Tai, and join the party (guest vocalists Rosemary Clooney and Debby boone did!) It¿s time to Shake Those Hula Hips!
