Verified Purchase. Exactly as promised. Delivered when expected. Now my twins and I are reliving our life in Hawaii any time we play this CD. Great piece of Hawaiiana. Jake is young and experimenting. Also has a nostolgia factor for me. It's got some decent covers and originals. Not a must have but definitely a good addition to you collection Package came in pretty quick.
All contents in great condition. One person found this helpful. RIP Guy Cruz. I was sitting in the balcony of my hotel room overlooking Kapiolani Park when I heard some music drifting in on the Waikiki breeze.
At first I thought it was a recording, a singer somewhere between Steven Stills and Richie Havens, and a guitar player riffing like early Santana, with some Martin Denny style jungle sounds in the mix. But when the singer started the rough and raspy chorus of "Give me the Beach Boys and free my soul I wondered on down to the bandstand in the sand and was amazed to see that the "guitar" player stomping on foot pedals was actually playing electric ukelele.
It was the most unusual use of a traditional instrument I'd seen since Junior Brown and his guit steel in an Austin nightclub. Jake can do just about everything on the ukelele that Santana can on the guitar, but I doubt Santana plays uke. Anyway, don't be deceived into thinking from the CD title and jacket that this GRoOvEMACHINE some kinda electronica.
The overtones are more of the Sixties than the Nineties; the melodies are mellow and slack key just like you would expect from these local boys. Despite the rather simple and uniform chord structures of the songs, the group displays a wide range of styles, including jazz, hawaiiana, latin, rock, spiritual and folk.
Jake only gets a chance to cut loose on "Serrano" -- his more challengingly virtuoso cover of "Europa" is inexplicably missing from this 'debut' CD I take it from the liner notes that Colon had a previous incarnation under another name.
It's not likely you'll see these guys anytime soon on the Mainland, so I suggest you buy the CD instead for a little island spirit wherever you are. The backing track included bombs dropping, sheets of metal being shaken, monkeys caw-cawing and more. I can't make this up. Bombs and monkeys. If that's your idea of "innovative", then this song is for you. To me, it was more like performance comedy, unintentional as it was.
I was embarassed for the artists after hearing this song. And then to find out that one of the Cruz brothers was on vocals! I was floored. That couldn't be right, GRoOvEMACHINE, could it?
