When I started playing ukulele, I did a Web search to see who the top players were. It's always good to know how the scale is defined :-) The consensus on the Web was clear: Jake is the Steve Vai of the uke universe. This was the first album I bought of Jake's and it does not disappoint. A few tracks including his remake of while my guitar gently weeps are awesome and instantly infective. Other tracks I didn't initially love have since grown on me in a big way. I would recommend this album to anyone who appreciates great technical players like Steve Vai or Ingwie Malmstein. To hear what Jake can do on 4 strings is really incredible--the voicings don't seem possible. I recently saw Jake at a small club in San Francisco -- just him and his famous Kamaka uke. He was not only as impressive as I had hoped, but one of the nicest, most approachable musicians I have ever seen (especially at that level of talent). I bought his most recent CD at that show, and it's just as amazing as this one. I think Jake is still a few years away from 30, so I hope he continues to amaze us for the next 30 years. Thanks for your music, Jake -- you're an inspiration to me and all the other uke players in the world!

I first became interested in Jake Shimabukuro when I saw a video of him playing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on uke. He is a virtuoso! This CD includes "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," plus many originals. "Grandma's Groove" is a great blues piece, and "Wes on Four" is jazz on steroids. A bonus DVD is included, showing Jake in the recording studio. You really have to see him to fully appreciate him.

Jake is an amazing young man, husband, and father. His story is like many, a long and challenging journey. Then one day, a friend video record Jake playing a Beetles tune on a Ukulele in the NYC park. Someone uploaded the video recording to the Internet and it soon went viral, over six million hits.

What's so spectacular of this otherwise normal guy? He can make a Ukulele sound like a Brazilian 16 string guitar tune, a jazz stringed instrument, a Japanese traditional musical instrument, make his Ukulele gently weep, as well as pick out beautiful Hawaiian love songs.

Jake, the gentle giant of a small frame, makes the sweetest music I've ever heard, electric, acoustic guitar or other stringed instrument.

You may have a difficult time remembering all the syllables in his last name; once you hear his music, you will take the time to listen and may happen to study his last name to realize it's as easy as five syllables: Shi ma bu ku ro.

This DVD is just one of many. If you want to hear a little bit of heaven, invest in the DVD and spend a piece of your busy day listening to a man who can make a four-string U ka le le; the instrument is pronounced with the first "u" spoken harder (stressed) than all the other consonant-vowel combination, sound better than any stringed ensemble.

Enjoy.

Jake Shimabukuro is such a talented person! How cool to watch him wrap his fingers (and mind) around the ukulele - My guy & I really enjoyed a show on "how Jake got started" and then I had to share his absorption and mindset with my Dad..... so I did! Meanwhile, I had
to get a CD for right now & "ever since" listening
