About the Album...

Following the success of the acclaimed Brown Gabby album, Panini, Gabby and friends decided to get together for a follow-up recording session. They were joined by slack-key legend Sonny Chillingworth and respected musician Randy Lorenzo, one of the best "side men" in the business.

The album offers 12 tracks, including an awesome rendition of Sonny's signature Makee 'Ailana. When listening, you can hear the looseness and "good fun" they had while doing the recordings. The vocals, instrumentals and arrangements sound reminiscent of the awesome "jam sessions" the Pahinui's were known for.

(Manana) Rabbit Island is located of the coast of O'ahu. It is used as a bird sanctuary and is under the jurisdiction of the State's Division of Fish and Game, Department of Land and Natural Resources. The pictures featured in the album were taken on location.
