Aloha Kakou,

I’ve been wanting to put together an ALOHA FRIDAY post for a minute; I finally got around to it with the help of KNOWxONE (mahalo). In the back of Mom’s VW Bus heading to the beach, the one thing I remember the most is HAWAIIAN MUSIC.. ALL DAY EVERY DAY. Needless to say, nowadays I have 105 KINE programmed for my morning and afternoon drives. I feel like our younger generation doesn’t embrace this as much as they should! Please take some time and get lost in some GOOD MUSIC!!

John William Coltrane. A man of illustrious proportions, a man who has redefined Jazz – and well, music as a whole. Born in Hamlet, North Carolina in 1926, a period when music was heavily syncopated and jazz and blues thrived like never before. Coltrane was also once stationed here in Hawaii nei in 1945 while serving in the Navy, even playing in the Naval band The Melody Masters. If you dig deep enough, you might be able to uncover a copy of privately recorded albums, recorded exclusively on acetate (5 to be exact). Coltrane also once played in MIles Davis’ band the “First Great Quintet,” at one point the band disbanded, but reunited with Davis in 1958. Other notable musicians Coltrane has worked with were Thelonious Monk, Cannonball Adderley, Duke Ellington and Freddie Hubbard. In 1967, Coltrane passed away in a Long Island New York hospital due to liver cancer. Til this day, Coltrane’s family possesses many unreleased and unheard recordings. In 2007, Coltrane won a posthumous special citation from the Pulitzer Prize Board in 2007 for his “masterful improvisation, supreme musicianship and iconic centrality to the history of jazz.”
