Excellent arrangement. We used it in a video at my daugther's Bat Mitzvah party. The simple uke strumming is great. Too bad Isreal had a short life. We was very talented

Great version of the tune. They play it on our local public radio station about once a week. It was also on a soundtrack recently, but the movie escapes me right now.

I think it's on the "Meet Joe Black" soundtrack.

But it's also on his own CD "Facing Future", which rarely leaves the rotation in my truck. Brudda Iz did a great cover of "Take Me Home Country Road" Hawaiian style on the same CD. Body of a sumo wrestler, but the voice of an angel, we lost him way too early.

They used it on the wedding video when we got married on the beach in Maui.

Yes, it was played at our wedding too. IIRC, Tara walked down the aisle to it. I can't remember anything...
