As the tenth anniversary of Israel’s passing approached, fans were anticipating something new about IZ, from producer Jon de Mello. IZ had become the voice of Hawaiian music and it was time to take his music to the next level. So, Jon opened the vaults of IZ’s archived music masters and began planning for the task of selecting the songs to be used on the new CD, then reducing the master tracks to IZ’s original voice and ukulele versions. Jon had been living with the memory of IZ’s constant wish to someday record with a full orchestra. So, Jon began the orchestrating process that would surround the original voice and ukulele tracks.. Month after month went by. Then orchestra recording sessions were scheduled and the newly recorded full orchestral backgrounds were mixed and blended and matched to the original Voice and Ukulele tracks. The Wonderful World was ready to be released and debuted at #1 on the Billboard World Chart and remained in the top 5 slots of that chart for 2 years.
