“Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can’t see anybody else catching up with.” – Eddie Vedder

3.0 out of 5 stars Great musician. Awful recording 12 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After seeing this guy on the web cranking out 'While my guitar gently weeps' I was really loking forward to getting this album. He is such a talent and certainly changes your views on ukelele players, but alas the quality of the recording is substandard (well on my cd it is).

Listening to it through headphones during the quieter moments of tracks you can here what I can only describe as a rustle, like the mic is being blown into or something is rubbing it. As I only tend to listen to music on my ipod I find it really does ruin the experience of listening to a very talented musician. This fault is less noticable through a set of speakers, although it is by no means absent even then.

It is very difficult to classify where this album should sit in musical generes as there are bluesy tracks like 'Grandma's Groove', spanish guitar influences as in 'Ave Maria' and 'Spain' and rock/pop as in 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.

The best track is certainly 'While my guitar gently weeps', which is why I brought the cd, but the other tracks are well worth a listen and overall its not a bad album to have in your collection.

Gets 3* because of the substandard recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 19 Mar 2011
By Michael F. Freer VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I read the review that criticised the recording quality but, whilst not enjoying disagreeing with a fellow reviewer, I consider the recording quality to be excellent. As a Ukulele player, I am amazed by Jake's talent. It is exceptional. I cannot give sufficient credit to this magnificent album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Like A Ukelele ! 2 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are considering buying and learning the ukelele Jake Shimabukuro is a good place to start because he demonstrates just what can be achieved, even on a cheap instrument. His playing is amazing and you often find yourself asking if there were lots of overdubs - there weren't.

This is an inspiring album and well worth the investment for George Harrison's While My Guitar Gently Weeps alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievabley good 5 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have watched Jake on Youtube playing as a child and he is obviously was a child prodigy.
He pays with amazing skill and straight form the heart with mind boggling ability.
Listen to this and you will never think of the ukulele in the same way again. Most Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it. 11 Oct 2008
By sandman
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wish i could play like this guy , i do not agree with the review that said there was a lot of back ground noise on the cd ,i play mine through a Nad CD with a Nad amp coupled up to a nice set of B&W speakers and it sounds just great - even through head phones it sounds lovely if you like the sound of a Uke - Buy it.
