Comments: Joanie Komatsu is a multi talented lady, she sings, composes and plays slack key guitar beautifully. I like her album and her style very much

Reviews: "Without Tears/Waimaka`ole" is a 1995 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards finalist in two categories -- "Best Female Vocalist" and "Best Liner Notes." True to its title, her disc features a variety of uplifting island-themed songs: 4 Hawaiian, 2 ballads, 1 reggae, 2 instrumentals, and 3 with fold-based rhythms. All 12 songs honor Hawai'i's island culture, legends, places, love and beauty. Nine of the songs are Joanie's original compositions. Some are arranged fully and performed with contemporary island flair by Ken Makuakane, Daniel Ho and Kit Ebersbach; other songs are rendered acoustically by Joanie herself. Guest artists performing with Joanie also include Hawaiian slack-key guitar masters Sonny Chillingworth, Ozzie Kotani, Keola Beamer, Del Beazley, and a guitar performance by pianist and ki ho`alu patron George Winston. Cover art is by photographer Kim Taylor Reese, and a 16-page booklet with song lyrics, translations, composer's notes and photos accompanies the CD.
