Led Kaapana
Waltz of the Wind

From the heart of Nashville comes an all-star album that serves up a mix of instrumental mastery, contemporary vocals and island music with a bit of southern hospitality. A master of Hawaiian slack key guitar, Led is featured here playing with an all-star band, including special guests Alison Krauss, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Douglas, Sonny Landreth, George Winston, Bob Brozman and more!

WALTZ OF THE WIND was recorded in Nashville and includes the poetic title track featuring the ethereal voice of Alison Krauss. Although they are musical cousins, this is the first recording combining players from Hawaiian, country and bluegrass music, three uniquely American traditions.

As a bonus, pianist George Winston joins Led in a stunning duet of "Fats" Waller's swing era classic Honeysuckle Rose.
