I’m proud to say that I first discovered the amazing Jake Shimabukuro more than 12 years ago when he captivated a hotel meeting room of “Arts Presenters” in New York. Jake was in his early 20s and, even then was a virtuoso of the uke. He hadn’t even ventured up to Central Park yet to be captured playing George Harrison’s “My Guitar Gently Weeps” which then hit You Tube and, as of today (I just checked) has 11,152,708 views! Jake has continued to mature and grow as both a person and a musician and there is no one like him. He mentors young player and is amazing in a room of children or music students. I’ve seen him in both instances. I’ve also had the privilege of seeing him play nearly every time he comes near Philadelphia. (If you haven’t seen him play live, you are missing a great experience.)

In the fall of 2012 Jake recorded an album, produced by the great Alan Parsons, titled “Grand Ukulele” with new songs and a string section. He then took off on a world-wide tour, without the string players but with a huge lighting crew and, for the first time in his career, a tour bus! I was lucky enough to see the tour outside Philadelphia in early 2013 and it was great. Honestly, I’m not sure the fancy lights were necessary but I guess that’s the price of fame. It’s Jake’s amazing fingers that make the show; the rest is just window-dressing.

At some point during the tour it stopped in Boulder Colorado and Jake, and his manager, Chris Ferarri, decided that the show should be captured on video for Jake’s huge fan base that wouldn’t get to see him play live. The result is this wonderful 75 minute DVD.

The production quality is top-notch in both video and audio.

Jake Shimabukuro is an incredible ukulele player. Fortunately, his performances in themselves are clear and can be heard well; but the overall product should have been edited carefully. I could not hear him talking without turning up the sound very high; in fact, I stopped listening to him talk. It is also annoying that there is never an introduction to his ukulele numbers.
The 3 stars are for the production of the dvd. I give Jake 5 stars!

Jake Shimabukuro is a great talent. He is best when he is live. This is a DVD of his last tour featuring songs from the Grand Ukulele CD. It is worth having just to see this version of an older song "Dragon". Too bad they didn't include a live version of "Music Box". Includes a short interview.

I really enjoy watching this DVD anytime. I have been to many of Jake's shows and it feels like I am there. The crowd in this video was really responsive and I really like the variety of camera angles. Watch this DVD with a chin strap, your JAW WILL DROP. (you've been warned).

I can't compare this to other DVDs of Shimabukuro... we only have this one and a couple of YouTube videos. The great thing is, with their purchasing power Amazon has persuaded manufacturers to ship this DVD without those horrible retail anti-theft strips on all three sides of the case. Kudos Amazon.

I would recommend ANY album by Jake Shimabukuro - and this album and DVD (I have them both) are excellent. The DVD version is a "must have" for any fan of Jake Shimabukuro! Highly recommended!

I never knew that someone could get such wonderful music out of a ukulele. Somewhere between Jazz and flamenco, but dead center on brilliant.
