AllMusic Review by

A mid-priced collection of Hawaiian standards and more contemporary compositions. The ukulele and steel guitar figure heavily in the course of the album, as one would expect. In large part, it's a lazy stroll through the numbers, calmly picking and strumming as needed with a quiet drum set in the background holding the pace for the guitarists, as well as the stray vibraphonist who wanders into the picture to help the lounge aspect of the album materialize a little better. This is decidedly more Don Ho than Gabby Pahinui in its nature, but then again, that's really what the idea was in the creation of the album. It's light lounge music with a definite Hawaiian origin. Pick it up for a nice, if short (at 25 minutes total) listen, perfect for quiet background music.
