Arthur Lyman - Hawaiian Sunset (1958)

On his third album, HAWAIIAN SUNSET, released in 1959, Lyman explores his Hawaiian heritage while weaving in the cool-jazz elements epitomized by Miles Davis' BIRTH OF THE COOL album. Linking Pacific Rim exotica and American jazz, the album features an array of authentic Hawaiian instruments, including a pa'i, puili and uliuli. Actually a love song and a well-known rhythmic chant, "Hawaiian War Chant" utilizes these native instruments, while "Hilawe" features Lyman himself on slack-key guitar.
