Jack Johnson, A True Hawaiian Treasure


Even, if you don’t like Jack Johnson, you gotta love the guy.

First, his music is infectious. He has a wonderful sound. His music grows on you.

Start listening to one of his tunes and you can’t seem to get it out of your head.

He freely shares his music. And that is a great concept.

As a matter of fact, he allows people to tape his concerts. He likes the idea of spreading his music virally. This is the same attitude as the Grateful Dead. So in a way he is carrying on that tradition.

He oozes the aloha spirit. He cares about Hawaii and the people of Hawaii. He promotes Hawaii every chance that he gets. He freely shares the stage with other performers. He is extremely generous.

He also cares very much about the environment. He has done many benefit concerts to help create environmental awareness. Many, many.

Here is something you may not know about him: he donates all the money he makes on tour to charity. Every penny is donated.

On top of everything else, he is very humble. He isn’t real comfortable with being famous.

As I said, you gotta love this guy.

Here is a taste of his music:

Thanks, Jack!

You are a true Hawaiian treasure. I look forward to saying thanks to you in person. And I’m sure I will.

Mahalo nui loa,

A Hawaii Pizza Tale: from Hawaii to Italy and Back

As you may know, I’m a pizzaman. I love making pizza, I love eating pizza and I love talking about pizza… (Here is my website: Pizza Therapy).

This is one of my favorite pizza tales I have ever experienced. Best of all, this extraordinary pizza conversation, had a Hawaii twist.

I happened to be at a Workshop recently and during lunch my favorite topic, pizza, just happened to come up.

Janet, who grew up in Hawaii, in a Japanese-American household, shared the following:

“One night, many years ago, my Dad and Mom decided to take us kids out for pizza. As soon as my Dad tasted the pizza, he said: “This is not real pizza…Now when I was in Italy during the Second World War, that was real pizza…”

(Albert’s side bar; So here goes: a pizza tale, with-in a pizza tale…)

Her father, who had never been out of Hawaii, was stationed in a small Italian town during World War II. They were camped on a farmer’s fields for several weeks. He decided to go for a walk to explore the farm.

The farmer became alarmed, when he noticed this stranger walking around his fields.

“Why” he thought, “was this strange Japanese man, walking around my fields?”

He immediately went to get a rifle. He then confronted this man pointing his rifle at him. The farmer soon realized, this Japanese man, was an American. He was a liberator and not a threat to him or his family.

After a while, the Italian farmer and this Japanese man from Hawaii, became friends.

One day the Serviceman was relieving himself near a stream and he noticed something in the water. He went to ask the farmer what he had seen.

The farmer told him, they were eels. Janet’s father was elated. He and his buddies were sick of K-Rations! Now they could feast on fresh eels! The other soldiers from Hawaii rigged some nets together and that night, they had an incredible meal of fresh eels, cooked right in their helmets!

The farmer then shared another secret with him. He said there were wild mushrooms growing right on the farm. The farmer taught him which mushrooms were safe to pick. Soon, their “eel and mushroom dinners” were the talk of the camp.

A short while later, his company had to leave. There was after all, a War going on. Before he left, the farmer invited him to his house for a meal. There, he tasted fresh, home-made pizza, for the first time. The memory of that pizza would never leave him.”

I thanked Janet immensely. I asked her if I could meet her dad, but she explained, he had passed away years before.

The tale made me think of my own father, who although born in the U.S., had loved to eat eels. He would regularly take us out to his secret spots to search for wild mushrooms. The love of this food had been passed on to him by his own father, who had been raised on a farm in Italy. And so it goes…

pizza on earth and Hawaii,

Hawaii’s Youngest Living Treasure: Jake Shimabukuro

Hawaii truly has many treasures. Its just that kind of place.

One of the best living treasures is Jake Shimabukuro. Jake is a wizard, a magician, a musician with an inincredible amount of talent. He oozes and drips music. The songs seem to come out of his spirit.

Here is a video of Jake, shredding his ukelele.

It has been special to see him grow and progress as a professional musician. He has matured gracefully. Each incarnation of Jake, has seen him discover new directions for his instrument. He has taken the ukelele places, never before thought possible.

Another special thing is that Jake has been recognized as an incredible talent by other musicians. For example Jimmy Buffet has brought Jake up on stage when he played in Honolulu. Blues Traveler did the same thing. He has been invited to preform with national music acts here in Hawaii and on the mainland, time after time. He is that good.

He is well respected. And humble.

He has a talent and gift that he wants to share. He is extraordinary.

This is one of my favorite tunes he does: While My Guitar Gently Weeps. This was written by Gieorge Harrison, but performed by Eric Clapton on the Beatles White album.

By the way: George Harrison, had a Hawaii connection: he lived in Maui.

Here is an incredible piece of music. Amazing.

Here is a version done by George Harrison and Eric Clapton (Ringo is on drums…)
