I've heard it and it's great. Bobby Robles who plays guitar on it sent me an advance copy. Kimo - AKA Jimmy Delgado is a fine player with a nice touch and spot-on intonation - no wonder since he studied with Jerry Byrd. He plays some tunes with a sort of sweet singing blues guitar tube amp sound - not quite the crunch of David Lindley but a tad of "hair". Other stuff he plays w/a real clean Hawaiian sound. Song choice is a little off the beaten path which I also like. He does a nice version of the old 60s Jorgen Ingman tune "Apache". I recommend a listen.

Thanx for the info about his studying with JB and the follow up review, Michael. I too found the song selection to be a bit out of the norm which intrigued me.
It'll be on my Christmas list for sure now.
Santa's gonna need a bigger bag and a coupla more reindeer this year...

Ron; It that the same Kimo who I believe was a Radio DJ when I lived in Honolulu back in 1980?
=============================
On second thought, I believe that would have been Kimo Casamaro(sp).

You're probably thinking of Kimo Kahoano, who is a great DJ, MC, hula/knife dancer, singer (can do Don Ho better than anyone), and a very nice guy. Here - www.youtube.com/watch?v=66M5koiFKt4 you can see Kimo do his thing last year during a set by Eddie Kamae and The Sons Of Hawaii, w/Paul Kim on steel.
That's me blocking the view at 1:12 and all that's left to remember of my once favorite rag shirt.

Sorry, You-Tube doesn't work with my WebTv! I wish it did! Yes, I think Kimo Kahoano is who I was thinking off! While I have you on the line (thread), do you know an older steel player who owns a D-10 Non-Pedal Mahogany Sho-Bud that reads JEB Custom on the right-front apron and also an old Black (recovered) Fender Bassman Amp.? I can't remember his name, but; he bought this Combo from me in May of 80, before I moved back to Nashville. He called it his Cadillac Steel.

He sounds really good!

Amazon has a page with short audio clips of all the tunes here:

John, I think we solved that mystery (at least to some degree) years ago when we first started communicating, but the results elude me at present.

Likewise. I didn't realize that it was you who I had inquired from!

Kimo hooked up with Bobby Ingano this weekend after meeting during convention doings and they ended up swapping steels, with Kimo getting a truly awesome 7 string short scale fry-pan (which once belonged to THE Tommy Castro and has graced most of Bobby's recordings) for his '54(?) and very mojo'd twin Fender Deluxe.
Both are very happy with their new guitars, tho I understand it was difficult for Kimo to part with his 'baby'. But the Rick he now owns is probably the best/easiest playing steel around.

Congrat's to both!

Finally!, I got to listen to Kimo's CD today (Happy Mother's Day, you mothers!), and am enthralled with his 3 Ts - talent, tone, and taste. If this is what the man can do with only his first steel CD, then we hopefully will have many more years of top shelf product to enjoy. I was already a fan from hearing about his recent stay on Oahu, but after hearing his playing, I can't wait for more.
Go Kimo!
His site - www.kimohawaiiansteelguitar.com
Hopefully his set at the Queen Kapiolani during the HSGA's convention was video'd and will be made available.

Ron,
Kimo attended but unfortunetely he did not play at the Quenn Kapiolani during the week. I met him and he is a sincere right on guy that studied under Jerry Byrd. He gave me a copy of his Kimo Tharapy. He has a fine touch for the Hawaiian feel.

Thanx for that truly sad info, Martin.
I was really hoping that someone had caught a performance. Would have enjoyed meeting the guy.

I had the chance to meet Kimo Delgado this last weekend when he played at Don the Beachcomber's in Huntington Beach, CA, He got terrific sound out of his old Rick bakelite steel, and yes, just a touch of hair on the tone. Great music by a fine gentleman.
