I was looking for some new running music on iTunes last night and came across this album by Jack Johnson. There are some great Hawaiian Albums and while I usually don’t buy full albums but with this one, I’m glad I did. While it probably isn’t a soundtrack that I’ll run to – it does make work at the computer or driving a TON easier. 🙂
First, the Kokua Festival is an annual event that “brings together environmental organizations, eco-friendly businesses, musicians, artists, teachers, and community leaders to support environmental educaiton in Hawai’i.” The list of entertainers that have performed at the festival is like reading what a top notch “island music” concert would look like.
It looks like the “Best Of Kokua” CD was released a few weeks ago – well, as far as I can tell on iTunes but there are some classic Jack Johnson songs as well as some island jams that I haven’t heard redone before. For Sheldon Carvalho in Texas who recently posted that he was listening to “Island Style” on KCCN – check out the live version, it won’t disappoint.
Anyway – glad I got this and thought I’d share it! Enjoy and look for another favorite recipe COMING SOON! 🙂
