In 1968, Waikiki Records released an album produced by Tommy Kearns called, “The Reflections Of Richard Kauhi and his Piano”, featuring Richard Kauhi.
Richard Kapapanuihanaumoku Kauhi was born on May 21, 1929 and we lost him at the age of 49 to lung cancer on January 21, 1979.
After breaking in with The Kalima Brothers in 1942, he created the Richard Kauhi Quartet in 1948. But in 1951, he left Hawaii for a solo career in California.
He returned to Hawaii in 1968, shortly after this album was released.
He performed in numerous clubs including Trappers in the Hyatt Regency Waikiki.
