From this development came the rhythmic and melodic elements that eventually blended into bebop, a style that re-introduced the African drums. Later on, two other elements came together harmoniously, rhythm and blues. The influence of these musical styles also spread all over the world, and is absorbed along with the growth of bebop and its now sound in the music presented in this album, "Elements of Now," whereas the drums are resurrected as a melodic per- cussion instrument.
Through the drumming style created and developed by Big Black, the drums are used as a solo instrument, improving on various themes within the framework of contemporary free form expressions. This is unequaled and makes him a virtuoso of the drums. This not only comprises a significant musical development, but also showcases Big Black as a composer of recognition, having contributed all original compositions for this, his second classic album of African music.

One day, I brought in my guitar and started singing.
A few of the patients joined in, and soon we were filling those vacant halls with music. Singing and songleading has brought me to many community settings in recent years— schools and libraries, coffeehouses, hospitals, shelters— places where people of all ages can feel that same joy and empowerment of making music together, a music that can break down walls of loneliness and fear.

Oh when And when, when did your eyes capture the dawn by surprise? And when, when will our trembling lips whisper the words of our poem? When, when will we find that all the time we have been home?

MA Though research has not been done, slack key may have existed on all Makee Ailana - Genoa Keawe - Hana Hou! Volume 1 (Cassette islands by this time. Recently it has risen to favor among Island youth of all races, not just among those of Hawaiian blood.
Ki ho'alu slack key is the Hawaiian version of open-chord guitar style: a standard guitar is tuned to some chord and the strings are fretted and picked with the fingers. The famous Hawaiian steel guitar style may have developed from slack key, but steel guitar Dobro is not slack key.
In Hawaiian steel guitar, the guitar is tuned to a chord, but the strings are "fretted" with a steel bar held in the left hand. This guitar style originally accompanied the mele in the old meaning of the word, a song or poem.
To the old Hawaiians, the words and meaning of a song were by far the most important part. The mel- odies were almost incidental, often traded from song to song. In the days when more people understood the language, meles were more than 15 verses long, with each verse sung and danced twice. Because of this tradition, the artists on this album wished to have half the songs with the guitar in a secondary role; the song words are primary.
Speaking technically of the style, the right-hand thumb plays the bass accompaniment while the right-hand fingers and sometimes the thumb play the melody and harmony. The chart should be thought of as my attempt to make sense of the mass of data I have; it is by no means the final word. These tunings have not all come from my informants. Some I have "invented" by com- bining bass and treble inversions from "authentic" tunings.
Some of the "invented" tunings, I've later discovered, were being played before my birth. The names are not standard, although they represent the trend among the folks I've talked to. What is "Wahine" to one may be "Mauna Loa" to the next. All tunings represent different chord inversions; that is what makes a different "key" or tuning in slack key. Please note that most musicians use only a few of these tunings, and many play most of their tunes in just one key.
The musicians on this record do not regard themselves as "pro- fessionals. Nevertheless, the tunes recorded here are mainly of professional quality, and all the songs in- cluded have a feeling of aloha — a feeling that is lacking in many of the professional recordings. Auhea oe e Sanoe Daniel's Mele No. Kaulmne was born on O'ahu, but his family comes from Lana'i. He us a true student of slack key. He uses this "key" exclusively on this album, getting the higher keys with a capo.
Occasionally he plays other tunings, but iie feels that this Mauna Loa con- tains the essence of slack key. Daniel Nicholas. He said something to the effect that he just played what he heard around. We got him in front of the microphone at the last possible minute in our schedule, and the results justify the wait. Charles Chu. Chu was born on Kaua'i but was raised partly in old Honolulu.
He worked for many years at Pearl Harbor, and is now retired. He said that when his peer group was playing guitars and 'ukuleles, he was busy getting educated and then supporting a family.
His retired life is now full of canoe racing, fishing, and playing standard Spanish guitar in the Hawaiian group. He was kind enough to record his memories of pre guitar styles for us. Apoliona is from Honolulu. She has played a variety of mu- sical styles and worked briefly in a folk-pop trio. She said she always found herself returning to her roots in Hawaiian music.

South Kona. Sanoe 10 July 75— 3'45" : This is another recording of the song that opens the album, done eight days later by the same personnel. We couldn't decide which one to use.

The stem of the instrument is fashioned of teakwood and the sound- ing box is of bamboo covered with snakeskin. The bridge is also of bamboo, and the strings are gen- erally made of twisted silk.
