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.

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.

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.
