Album Notes

Album review by John Berger (Honolulu Star-Bulletin):

Na Leo - Nalani Choy, Angie Morales and Lehua Kalima Heine - have enjoyed consistent success with over the years with original pop and hapa-haole songs, but they do Hawaiian standards beautifully as well. Their latest album follows in the musical "footsteps" of their 2006 release, "Where I Live, There Are Rainbows," with another collection of local classics sung with those unmistakable three-part Na Leo harmonies.

"Do the Hula" sets the mood as they sing of things that have made Hawaii a dream destination for more than a century: flowers, tropical moonlight and a "little brown gal in a little grass shack."

"I Ola Kakou Na Hawai'i" is the first of several Hawaiian selections. "Misty Rains and Lehua" and "E Huli Ho'i Mai" stand out in featuring individual voices up front - the first number is sweet and seductive, the second zesty and up-tempo.

Na Leo closes with a dreamy rendition of "Pupu Hinuhunu" that once more puts on display those gorgeous harmonies.
