CD Reviews

Jeff Rowe | Long Beach, CA | 06/28/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The real test of a songwriter is the durability of their music.
Generations from now, it's a safe bet that people still will be listening to songs by Lennon and McCartney --- and Kui Lee.
Yes, his name is less well known but his contributions to Hawaiian music are giant. "I'll Remember You" and some of Kui Lee's other songs not only are classics but they heralded the beginning of evolution of Hawaiian music from three-chord ditties to nuanced, richly layered and musically innovative songs that command Grammy attention today.
Kui Lee died way too young but not before he left a trove of work that remains a joy to hear."
