Big Kahuna And The Copa Cat Pack - Hawaiian Swing

You guys liked the last one - so here is the other one by these jazzy dudes.
The BIG KAHUNA (aka Matt Catingub) packs fun and excitement into each and every swinging note. The tunes on this album don't really remind one of Hawaii, even though there are some great Hawaiian standards. In fact, this album makes you wanna get up and dance swing or latin, and that's not a bad thing at all. Even though the album art and song selection had me expecting a more relaxed "Island" experience, complete with lilting voices and steel guitars. This album turned out to be more up-tempo swingin' big band with a rather impressive horn section. I was amazed by the musicianship and fun that was packed into this album. The songs are pure big band fun.

01.Come On-A-My-House
02.A Tisket A-Tasket
03.Medley-Don't Be That Way, Stompin' At the Savoy
04.The Hukilau Song
05.Pearly Shells
06.In the Copa Room
07.Every Day I Have the Blues

13.Medley: Smiles, When You're Smilin'
14.Don Cha Go 'Way Mad
