Album CoverMark Twain once described Hawaii as "The Loveliest Fleet of Islands ever to lie Anchored in any Ocean." But our islands do not lie anchored. They are constantly moving, changing and growing. They are beautiful tall ships riding the waves on a magnificent voyage. This album is about that voyage. Relax with Ed Kenney and sail the tall ships.

Edward Albert Kenney, Jr. was born in 1933 in Honolulu. He graduated from Punahou High School in 1951 and went on to attend Oregon University and the University of Hawaii, having pursued his interest in singing and acting. Ed was a piano soloist at the age of six —sang his first tenor solo at twelve, and at fourteen co-starred in Gilbert and Sullivan's Gondoliers. With this experience behind him, at sixteen Ed took on the lead role in the Student Prince. During his stint in college, he accepted the role of Julio in Paint Your Wagon. Ed Kenney launched a new career as a recording artist under the direction of Bob Magoon, a Honolulu song writer and businessman. Several songs composed by Bob Magoon are included in this CD. Other credits for Ed include roles in Oklahoma, Sunset Serenade Show at the Niumalu Hotel (1954), Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel with Beverly Noa (1972), Sheraton-Waikiki Prow Lounge (1974), Leonard Bernstein's Mass (1974), on Broadway for two years as lead in Flower Drum Song and 13 Daughters (written by Bob Magoon.) Without a doubt Ed Kenney is one of Hawaii's most gifted sons.
