Israel was a powerful live performer, as is captured on this recording released in 1998. This album has tracks culled from various performances between 1993 and 1997, and emits the friendly vibe that characterized him. The connection that IZ had with his audience is evident as he introduces his songs, makes jokes and speaks to the audience as if they were family. Iz in Concert features live versions of earlier studio recordings, plus never before released live performances and spoken word. A true intimate experience with IZ, this album highlights the stunning purity of his voice. His most beloved songs are here, from “Kaleohano” to the state anthem “Hawai`i Aloha”. Iz in Concert is a rare glimpse into the real man and his music.
