Oh, absolutely. IZ has a haunting voice, doesn't he? He definitely passed on too soon from this world.

Another great Hawaiian singer--if you're into really smooth, traditional Hawaiian music--is Keali'i Reichel. He is also a master chanter--one of the best traditional singers in Hawaii and, like IZ, one of the most beloved (for good reason--the brother is talented!).

Mmmm... Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake, 'Brudda Iz', Keats, Shelley, Byron, Rimbaud, Eva Cassidy, John Lennon... always the true heroes in life die far too young... :cry:
