Reissue of an extremely rare 2LP from Hawaii – recorded live at Orvis Auditorium at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Originally released in 1979, this exclusive jazz-fusion album is a work composed by famous Hawaiian composer/musician/educator Gary Washburn. A Life In A Day was a project to fulfill a National Endowment of the Arts grant that he was awarded, and he performed it to fulfill a State Foundation grant that was also awarded to him. Gary composed the music in Hilo specifically for the individuals who performed the music (in the same way that Duke Ellington composed for his band). It's a concept album. The Justin Thyme line-up played a series of shows across the island, and they were initially recorded on a four-channel recorder. The songs were introduced to his brother and producer Kent Washburn and he agreed to release it on his independent label EmKay Records. The album was mixed and pressed, but the distribution company he was with doubled it up and the album never really made it to the public. Music styles include traditional and contemporary jazz, funk, pop and, in some passages, classical.
