Leonard Kwan
The Legendary Leonard Kwan (HOCD 55000)

This first CD reissue of the late Leonard Kwan’s historic Tradewinds recordings marks an important event for all fans of slack key. Leonard’s unique and beautiful style is lovingly represented on these legendary tracks recorded from 1957-1974. This CD includes all of the masterful Tradewinds tracks with Leonard as a leader, plus two songs featuring him as a sideman. His classic 1960 album SLACK KEY (the “Red Album”), part of this reissue, was the first ever all-instrumental album of slack key guitar. It influenced and inspired everyone who plays slack key and continues to be the most influential slack key guitar album in history.
