Album CoverJesse Kalima was born in Honolulu in 1920 and attended Farrington High School. Jesse got his start playing at family luaus with his brothers. Over the years he appeared in many of the night spots in Honolulu and also at many clubs on the mainland.

The best ukulele players in the islands learned to play the ukulele by imitating Jesse's technique. Jesse's style was often copied but never equaled.

He was the first performer on live TV at KGMB and the first musician to be hired on a cruise ship sailing out of Hawaii.

Jesse was a super showman and had complete mastery of the ukulele. He died in 1980.
