I can understand why Jake is considered one of the most talented Ukulele players in the world. Not quite my cup of tea but I gave it to a friend who is part of a large group of ukulele learners and she really enjoyed it.

I ordered this CD for my daughter. She bought her ukulele a few years ago. She said that Jake Shimabukuro is the best ukulele player in the world

Before I heard this masterful CD, when someone mentioned the ukulele, I thought of Tiny Tim tiptoeing through the tulips. Now that I've heard Jake Shimabukuro, I have fallen head over heels in love not only with the ukulele but also with his musical artistry. Read more...

Jake has been called a uke phenom and virtuoso in his short career, so it's no surprise that Alan Parsons (of The Beatles' ''Abbey Road'' fame) sought him out and produced this CD.

While there are several covers you will recognize –- ''Over the Rainbow,'' ''Rolling in the Deep,'' and ''Fields of Gold'' –- it's Jake's original work that brings me joy with every note. He taps into classical, blues, flamenco, surf rock, rockabilly, and even transforms the ukulele to mimic a music box.

While some songs are ukulele only, others add the beauty of violin, cello, bass, flute, oboe, and French horn. I don't know why, but his music makes me smile –- maybe because it is so upbeat, irresistible, and fun. Everyone who hears it loves it, and I hope you do too!
