"Bla has one of the most unique and pleasing voices! His soulful renditions of some slack key classics amaze me. You can, of course, hear some of his father, Gabby Pahinui, in him. But, Bla's renditions raise the barre even higher. There is much emotion in his singing. His slack key picking has a unique sound based upon playing left handed and upside down, so he uses his thumb for the notes and his fingers for the bass rythyms. A must addition to any slack key afficianado's collection."
