Billboard Buzz: Tapia Tops

Billboard gave a wonderful review of Bill Tapia's CD "Tropical Swing."
"In an era of manufactured and quickly forgotten pop acts, a debut solo album from a 96-year-old man is quite a surprise. And Hawaiian guitar/ukulele legend Bill Tapia's 'Tropical Swing' is as delightful as it is surprising."
Bill graciously autographed my copy on Sunday. This CD is a MUST HAVE. In addition to a bevy of recent recordings, the disc features two rare vintage tracks including Byron Yasui's father's 1936 wire recording of Bill playing "Stars and Stripes Forever."Link
