OVERVIEW

The current worldwide appreciation of ukulele music can easily be traced to one man, Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole. Israel's music conveys joy and hope and is loved the world over. When writing the book From the Corner of His Eye, author Dean Koontz found inspiration in Iz's music, stating, "I hope that the reader finds pleasure in my story equal to the joy and consolation that I found in the voice, the spirit, and the heart of Israel Kamakawiwo'ole." Tragically, Iz passed away at the age of 38 in 1997. The state flag of Hawaii was flown at half mast as he lay in state at the Hawaiian capitol building. He was the third person in Hawaiian history to be bestowed this honor. Ten thousand people attended his funeral and thousands gathered to witness as his ashes were scattered at Makua Beach. This songbook contains 13 songs transcribed for ukulele exactly as Iz performed them.

Titles: 'Ama'ama * Hawai'i '78 * A Hawaiian Like Me * Henehene Kou 'Aka * Ka Huila Wai * Ka Pua U'i * Keyhole Hula (Kauoha Mai) * Kuhio Bay * Na Ka Pueo * Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World * Panini Puakea * 'Ulili E * White Sandy Beach * The Wind Beneath My Wings/He Hawai'i Au.

Contains 13 songs transcribed for ukulele exactly as Iz performed them.

        Comments about Alfred IZ - The Ukulele Songbook:

        As played is often not accurate, but it is in this book. Scoring is for his voice and Tenor or Soprano 'Uke, but tablature works for Baritons, just a 4th down. I bought this for 'Somewhere over the rainbow/Beautiful World' and am very pleased.
