thanks. Super cool.

Jerry is the best. What do we do when those guys are gone or can't make a living playing anymore? There was a day when they were so booked you couldn't get them for months. Now like the engineer says, it's a rarity. Rare enough to document and put on youtube because no one has seen the real deal horn section before....

Long live the seawind guys, and jerry's arrangements!!!!

Cool video. But the Seawind horns are Jerry, Kim Hutchcroft and Larry Williams. Living and playing in Hawaii in the '70s we were in awe of all of them. The trumpet player I played with in the late '70s in Waikiki studied with Jerry at the UH.

There's a thing in Hawaii where they combine jazz swing with the old Hawaiian music. And it infects everyone who lives there with this lyrical musicality. And when you couple that with the talent and dedication of the Seawind folks, you get something really special. It's a shame Pauline and Bob dragged the group in another direction. Stretching out on jazz fusion stuff and then coming back so tight it was like one mind. A little bar full of the best musicians in town with their jaws on the floor. At least that created the opportunity for Jerry, Kim and Larry to move to Hollywood and share some of that special thing with everyone else.

I love it but it kinda makes me long for the golden years.

Guess I'm just old.

Anyway, thanks for a cool video.
