Being a frequent and dedicated visitor to the islands, Mr. Mancini has long considered an album of Hawaiian music high on his "things to do" list. Elmer Bernstein's lovely title theme music from the film "Hawaii" provided the perfect cornerstone for the album. Many well-known standard island songs round out this beautifully descriptive musical trip to Hawaii.

3. The Moon of Manakoora
4. Pearley Shells (Pupu O Ewa)
