Album Notes

The late Leonard Ke`ala Kwan (1931-2000) was one of the most influential slack key guitarists in history.

This CD re-issue of his historic Tradewinds recordings marks an important event for all fans of slack key. Leonard's unique and beautiful style is lovingly represented on these 28 legendary tracks recorded from 1957-1974. This CD includes his debut recording, plus all of the masterful Tradewinds tracks with Leonard as a leader, plus two songs featuring him as a sideman. His classic 1960 album SLACK KEY (fondly known as the "Red Album") is part of this reissue, and was the first ever all-instrumental album of slack key guitar.
