Coconut Joe Releases
2nd CD, Middle Of The Ocean
Hana Hou! Turtle Bay Records is pleased to announce the release of Coconut
Joe's second CD, Middle Of The Ocean
that will hit Hawai`i stores May 7, 2002.
The CD features a little bit of pop, soft rock, and light jazz from
the islands. It's adult contemporary, island music that the group from
Kailua, Oahu calls Tropical Pop. Music for tourist, tourist wannabes
and kama`aina (locals) of all ages.
Island born and raised songwriter Bob Rogers penned all the songs and
again teams with veteran Hawai`i guitarist Frank Kam and Barbara Ann
Rogers to provide the group's core vocals and harmonies. Newcomers to
the group are veteran bassist Peter Agustin, drummer Herman Regal and
New Zealand percussionist, Robert Blok.
Sharing the many musical faces of Coconut
Joe's unique brand of Tropical Pop is the focal point of the group's
latest CD. Sweet Angelina takes
the listener on a world tour returning us safely to the cradle of our
Island home. Familiar guest musicians from Hawai`i's jazz scene, Gabe
Baltazar, Brien Matson, and Rick Broadwell provide a swinging
Dixieland horn section to What a Wonderful
Day! while vibraphonist, Noel Okimoto sparkles on
Sands of Silver and Gold. Both songs
showcase two of Hawai`i's favorite beaches. All
About Love is a soft rock ballad that's... well,...
all about love, and Island Rendezvous
and Haupia continues the group's
musical tour of the islands with uptempo island pop tunes.
The title track Middle Of The Ocean
visits a little club on the forbidden edge of jungle rock and groove
while Light Of The Moon explores
the introspection side of the CD. Jazzy Hey
examines a sensitive relationship and the Evolution
Of Joe makes a couple of astute observations while the band
unplugs for an acoustic jam.
