Quotes & Highlights
“Jake Shimabukuro is taking the ukulele to places that it’s never been before.” —_San Francisco Chronicle _
“His chords are as inventive as his solos are blazing, and he moves effortlessly between the two.” —_Vintage Guitar Magazine _
Hawaiian-born Jake Shimabukuro has transformed the ukulele into a supremely pliable musical vehicle, capable of generating everything from crunching, effects-laden rock to sensuously swinging jazz. Strumming with a hummingbird blur, Shimabukuro coaxes an impossibly big sound out of the little instrument, playing an intoxicating mix of pop tunes, American Songbook standards and lilting originals. His thrilling new album, Live, captures the sheer intensity of a Shimabukuro performance, leaving no doubt about why he’s been embraced by fellow string renegades such as banjo star Béla Fleck, fiddle wizard Darol Anger and Australian guitar maestro Tommy Emmanuel.
