Synopsis

Product Description
Land of Enchantment was the first album that allowed Hawaiian music fans to appreciate classic Hawaiian songs, in a full orchestral setting. Life was rapidly changing in Hawaii in the aftermath of Statehood in 1959 and Jack de Mello's orchestra was the soundtrack for that era in most homes and hotels. Today those same fans still revere this music, which resonated with both residents and visitors to the islands. Jack de Mello has shaped Hawaiian music in the course of the last fifty years, with lush orchestral arrangements of Hawaiian classics. These recordings, available once again, have lost none of their beauty and remain as evocative of the islands today as when they were first released. Enjoy the musical magic and imagination of Jack de Mello.
