This disc is beautiful and powerful. There are traces of flamenco styling as well jazz, country, well...you name it. This disc is a wonderful surprise and I recommend it highly. "Ukulele Virtuoso" indeed.
Jake's covers of other people's compositions are creative, interesting, entertaining, and fun to listen to; his own compositions for ukulele have great musical inventiveness, energy, and sensitivity. Jake does things with his ukulele that I did not imagine were possible on a single instrument, much less one with just four strings. But I don't listen to it for the amazement value -- it's just great music, played with spirit and finesse.
It'll be coming out in September in the US so the price should be more resonable then.
All his other CDs are great - my favorite is still Crosscurrents. And the DVD is a bargain at under $15.00 list!
This guy is a whiz! Just listen to samples!
Jake amazes me everytime I listen. And every time, I seem to find something new about his playing or whatever musical approach he is doing. He is a real musician: he's got the legitimacy of a classical/jazz musician. He's capable of showing the hard work and effort he puts into his playing to the listeners of today. He can really put shame into a lot of rock artists, who's 'goal' is to write a music for the listeners and entertain and not crafting their skills on their instruments.
I really like his interpretations of the classics. I love his interpretations of Spain and Misty. And it's hard to imagine he's getting so much of tone through the four stringed 'toy' instrument.
