He was the musical director of the Tonight Show for two years in the 1990s, and has collaborated with musicians ranging from Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins to Sting, the Grateful Dead and Bruce Hornsby.

We attended the Makana concert on November 7, 2013. It was rainy and windy outside but inside the audience was transported to heavenly Hawaii.
Makana has incredible talent. He played traditional Hawaiian Slack Key along with the new cuts from his current album. It seemed that I was hearing the traditional songs /music for the first time because of the depth of his music and voice. He played the piano, ukulele and shared lots of talk story . It was the very best concert I've been to in years and I have a new favorite Slack Key artist...Makana!
The Benaroyal Hall is a wonderful venue. We sat in the back but the acoustics and line of vision were perfect .
This performance does not include the Seattle Symphony.
