    "Polani" is $9.99 on iTunes.
    Or if you want the CD, prices on Amazon for a used copy begin at $51.51.
    Hmmm . . . tough decision.

    The Polani physical CD also can be had for $15.00 at Ho's website. That's where I bought it.

    Thanks for starting this conversation.

    Lately I have been bemoaning my lack of instrumental uke music to listen. For whatever reason I did not know about this album. Sublime!

    So, is it totally instrumental with no singing?

    Yes, Polani is a ukulele instrumental album. 11 original tracks composed by Ho for the album, and one Ho arrangement of an old Liliuokalani tune. No vocals.

    So I've been listening to the "Daniel Ho plays Pepe Romero 'Ukuleles" album for a while now... it's a good album, but in my estimation it just doesn't have the same magic that "Polani" does.

    Track 4, "Bicycle Holiday" is very reminiscent of "Polani," and is IMO the most magical one on the album.

    Two things:

    Yes, the CD that came with my RC Grand Tenor is lovely.

    Musical illiterate that I am, I found the brief discussion of half-steps and unisons very interesting. Im currently working on a piece that uses quite a few of both.

    Thanks for posting the liner notes. As wonderful as iTunes is (tap tap, I am now listening to Polani, new to me at 5:00 am on a Saturday), we lose a lot.

    I was listening to a Polani cut on youtube and a part of it sounds like it was taken from Cat Stevens Moonshadow
