The sounds Jake gets from a little Ukulele is just unbelievable!
He uses so many different strumming patterns and fingering...the uke
just sings away!

Best ukulele player 16 April 2011
By Peter Calvet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The modest little ukulele, brought to Hawaii by early Portuguese settlers was never intended to be a major solo instrument. A Portuguese folk instrument, called "cavaquinho", in Portugal it is used for rapid strumming in folk dances, using usually simple chord changes. The cavaquinho was also exported to Brazil where it is called the same as in Portugal, and essentially played the same way as the Portuguese, but with the syncopated rhythms of the Samba and other popular music. Even in Hawaii, the uke has been mainly used as an accompanying instrument, strummed with fairly basic chords. Until now... Jake Shimabukuro has taken the lowly uke to an entirely new level. Don't even think Tiny Tim or Portuguese and Brazilian folk tunes. This guy is a legit virtuoso. What he does with this instrument is nothing short of amazing. Complex chords, fancy solos, all with just four strings. Sometimes you have to wonder if he is cheating. But when you see him live you can't believe what you are seeing. This CD has more sophisticated orchestral arrangements unlike his previous pieces that are most solo, but the power of his playing shines through nonetheless. If you are an acoustic guitar lover, you're not going to believe he is playing a diminutive guitar like instrument with only four strings. He is that good. Before you purchase any of his CD's check him out on You Tube. He's got a few videos you can watch in amazement. And if you're like me, you'll want to purchase some of his music right away.

Jake Shimabukuro makes magic on the ukulele. 4 Jan. 2011
By Robert G Yokoyama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jake Shimabukuro takes ukulele playing to a new level with "Peace Love Ukulele". He is proof that beautiful music can be made without singing a single word. My favorite track is "Bohemian Rhapsody. I have never heard this classic rock tune played on an ukulele. Every chord is so soothing on this track. "Go For Broke" is a patriotic tune for the soldiers. This is a very moving composition. "Bring Your Adz" is another original composition. Jake proves that a fast paced ukulele song can be enjoyable with this song. "One Four Three" is a pretty ukulele love song. This song puts me in a great mood. I love the song Hallelujah, but I have never heard it an instrumental version of it before. It sounds absolutely breathtaking. He conveys so much emotion with his instrument on this song. "Five Dollars Unleaded" is a fun song about gasoline. This song is light in beginning. The tempo of the song is serious in the middle and light again in the end. "Piano Forte" is an ukulele song that is inspired by the piano. The chords on this song touch my emotions. It is an absolutely goregous three and a half minutes of music. "Trapped" is cool groovy song that is inspired by jazz music of all things. I have never heard anything like it. The music of Jake Shimabukuro is delightful, moving and inventive. I love this disc.

A young virtuoso pushing the envelope -- listen to his NPR and Rolling Stone concerts and interviews 31 Jan. 2011
By Thomas E. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Jake Shimabukuro is almost certainly the finest Hawaiian ukulele player performing today. He infuses tradition with a modern sensibility and reworks contemporary music in a classic style. "Peace Love Ukulele," his newest solo album, is wonderfully intricate and soothing.

Also check out his 2006 album, Gently Weeps, and his NPR page, which features an interview and clips from several concerts. At the Rolling Stone website, you can watch intimate performances of the first three songs on this CD, including "Bohemian Rhapsody," its centerpiece.

In his hands, the four-string ukulele sounds like a Stradivarius 22 Jan. 2011
By Steve Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I discovered Jake Shimabukuro 10 years ago, when he was just 22 and a whiz at playing the uke. Of course by then he had already been playing it for 18 years!. For his earliest recordings he was backed by a band. Then he cut back and went mostly solo, with a bass or percussion used sometimes to fill out the instrumentation. He is now 33 and has matured even more in to a world-class musician with a worldwide reputation. While many folks may not remember his name, if you say "that guy playing that George Harrison song on a uke in Central Park", they instantly know who you mean.

Jake's latest CD is a great mix of music styles and shows his growth as a composer as well as a musical innovator. While earlier albums showcases the lightning speed of his fingers - still in great evidence on the track "Bring You Adz", his musical passion for the classics (he appears on the Bach & Friends DVD and in duet with Yo-Yo Ma on Ma's holiday CD) on " Pianoforte" and "Trapped 2010", the latter would be a great duet with Joshua Bell. Jake's tribute to World War II veterans, "Go For Broke" uses snare drums to give it movement. And Jake is not the only Shimabukuro who plays ukulele. His younger brother, Bruce, is a uke teacher in Hawaii and joins Jake for the duet they composed: "Ukulele Bros.". There are two "cover songs" here as well. Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and the Queen masterpiece "Bohemian Rhapsody", performed twice (once in studio and once live in Japan) with just Jake and his four-string, two octave, "jumping flea". He has dissected all the parts and put them together in an arrangement that makes this his best album yet.

If you haven't discovered Jake yet, now is the time. (Bette Midler chose him as the only accompaniment to her performance of "In My Life" for Queen Elizabeth! So she knows!). If you already know his albums, just go out and grab this one!)

UKULELE? Yes, sounding as you've never heard it 4 Jan. 2012
By Joanna Daneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you've seen the wonderful Japanese film Hula Girls you will have heard the magical ukulele music of Jake Shimabukuro. He's interviewed on extras. This Hawaiian musician has taken the world of ukulele and made it, well, if not mainstream, at least very visible. Jake's concerts sell out and his fans are legion.

This cd has some of his best renditions of original and popular songs, played and arranged for ukulele. You can hear his clean and bell-like picking style. The ukulele itself derives from a small Portuguese guitar, the braghuinia, brought to Hawaii by immigrants and it became a part of Hawaiian music thereafter. For a small set of islands, Hawaiian music has had a big impact, and the ukulele is part of a tradition of small and parlor guitars that has flown under the radar for quite a while. "Peace Love Ukulele" shows off the instrument's light and high tone, the delicacy compared to the bigger six string guitar.

Of the songs, it's hard to pick a favorite but most people are smitten with "Hallelujah", an instrumental cover the hit song by Leonard Cohen. And the big orchestra sound of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is amusing as arranged by Jake. I personally love "Pianoforte" for its sound, bell-like and truly similar to a piano.

You can't go wrong with this CD and if you like plucked strings, you'll love this CD.
