Just before Hukilau, Rusty and I recorded the uke parts to Nani Hanalei.
I left them alone in order to redo them as they weren't quite together enough for my taste.
Now that Rusty is gone, I decided to go ahead and share them as it was our favorite song to play together.
I wish you could have heard us do it together when we were in sync at the Lagoon Lounge. It was magic.
I'm singing both parts since we never got to lay in the vocals, but such as it is - it is still a beautiful song and a gift from Rusty to all of us as he has several solos during this one take recording of it.
Enjoy and remember him fondly.

Thnaks for posting that, Pablus. It's sobering to think of Russ not being at your place on Tuesday night....always waiting with a friendly hello and a uke just itching to be played. Damn. Can't wait to see you, bro.

A very nice gift for the TC clan and a beautifully played song. Keep your spirits up bro and keep that uke singing.
