Large Format Edition: Measures 12.25" x 9.5" --- Johnny Noble was an American musician, composer and arranger. He was one of the key figures behind the development of the hapa haole style of music in Honolulu, and played a leading role in introducing Hawaiian music to the United States. At one point, Noble supervised most of Honolulu's hotels and country club entertainment. Throughout the 1920s, Noble and his band publicized Hawaiian music by means of recordings, radio broadcasts, performances on cruise ships and tours of mainland America. Noble composed a number of now-famous hapa haole tunes, including "My Little Grass Shack", "King Kamehameha" and "Hula Blues". He also popularized the traditional "Hawaiian War Chant" song. Noble published hundreds of traditional Hawaiian songs in their original form, and reworked many to "Western scale and contemporary instrumentation". --- FREE Domestic Shipping.
