This is what we've been waiting for!

Ive been a fan of Jake Shimabukuro for a while now, and I've always thought that his best songs are the ones he played by himself. It seemed like every album would get more filled with other 'junk' besides the Ukulele, especially with Dragon, which is probably my least favorite. This CD truly captures Jakes style, fexibility, and talent. I would suggest this CD for ANYONE, not just Ukulele enthusiasts.

hurray for the ukulele!

I bought this album on a whim after hearing an interview with Mr Shimabukuro on NPR. And though I am familiar with ukulele music from my collection of Hawaiian music, Mr Shimabukuro is indeed a master. He takes the ukulele places you would never expect. To suddenly hear the jazz of a song like Misty was the most surprising, but then to hear him wax reverent on Ave Maria was sublime. Wonderful music. Thank you.

A MUST for Jake, George Harrison, ukulele & eclectic music fans

Jake is a vibrant yet down to earth performer. If you haven't seen him live- you must. His aloha pulses through his virtuosic playing. He makes the ukulele sound like a koto in the beginning of "Sakura". His compositions "Let's Dance" and "Blue Roses Falling" are true bliss. You will not be disappointed with this acoustic album; it sent me soaring. MAHALO!
