With the release of his third solo album, "A Flying Leap", James continues to tear up the uke (AcousticGuitar.net). Seven of the album s ten tracks are genre-bending originals ranging in style from the bluegrass-tinged 'Song for Cheri' to the jazzy 'Fleas My Dog Has' to the remarkable 'One Small Suite for `Ukulele,' an ambitious work in three movements written for `ukulele and string quartet. Also featured is a gorgeous two-uke arrangement of Jimi Hendrix's 'Little Wing' alongside a swinging take on Chalmers Doane's 'Uke Talk'.
