Jim “Kimo” West‘s new album Moku Maluhia – Peaceful Island features an all-original playlist of relaxing slack key guitar with guest appearances by George Abe on shakuhachi (a Japanese end-blown bamboo flute) and Simone Vitucci on cello.
Set to release on February 12, iTunes presale starts tomorrow, Sunday, January 14!
From Kimo’s email newsletter: “The cover art is an original painting by Big Island artist, Harry Wishard. His virtual galleries feature beautiful renderings of real and imaginary places from his life of living on “Moku O Keawe” as does his Waimea gallery space. The excellent photography is by my good friend, Dusty Foster, taken at the Slack Key Show in Napili, Maui.”
