On the set of "Six Days/Seven Nights" with Taj Mahal and Harrison Ford. The first album of the Hula Blues Band, "Sacred Island," was recorded on Kaua'i during the filming of the movie.|
Our engineer John Gilleran took a rough mix of 3 songs to director Ivan Reittman as well as the producer and they went nuts. They'd needed a band for a major scene and we were dropped into their laps. We ended up with 2 songs in the scenes where David Schwimmer proposes to Anne Heche.
Mr. Ford seemed to be as struck by Taj as we were of him, and insisted on Taj being included in shots we asked to take.
