Holani: Keola Beamer & Geoffrey Keezer, with Moanalani Beamer
Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Master Keola Beamer and Jazz Piano Virtuoso Geoffrey Keezer combine their artistic talents to create a new, evocative space where chords shimmer and harmonies interweave in unique and inspiring ways. Infused with the earthy tonality of ki-ho'alu (slack key guitar) and the Hawaiian ancient instruments and hula of Moanalani Beamer, and with the spatial openness of contemporary American jazz piano, the musicians create a compelling musical world that draws from the seemingly disparate influences of their own genres. They come together at "Holani" the Hawaiian mythical island among the stars, a source of life and inspiration.
"Keola Beamer is the best slack-key guitar player on the planet."Willie Nelson
"Geoffrey [Keezer] possesses a refreshingly open-eared sensibility in the modern manner, and he has more than enough virtuosity and sheer musical wit and intelligence to weave all of his apparently disparate strands of influence into an original and compelling whole."Time Magazine
