Jack de Mello recorded close to 160 albums of all types of music, including almost 500 Hawaiian songs. These songs recorded in the biggest and best studios around the world gave Hawaiian music a new identity. Decca Studios in London, Barclay Studios in Paris, RCA in Rome, major studios in Hollywood, New York, Chicago all became Jack’s playground and introduced the world’s music business to a category of music that they only heard in scratchy radio broadcasts from Waikiki Beach on Saturday mornings. He made Hawaiian music viable to a musical world who felt it primitive at best. The London Philharmonic, [a432532] , [a1799567] and the [a1348996] were among those who marveled at what was traditional Hawaiian music arranged by what was quickly becoming one of the masters of Hawaiian music. Victor Records of Japan recognized Jack’s talent and recruited him to produce 21 albums featuring the Victor Pops Orchestra over an eleven-year partnership.
