Product Description

The word “ukulele” is the Hawaiian word for “jumping flea”. The musical instrument of the same name again derives from Hawaii, where there are a number of popular stories about how the instrument was so named. The most popular one credits Portuguese Joao Fernandes as the man responsible, he arrived in Honolulu in 1879. The ukulele is an instrument that has appealed to a vast array of assorted musicians. George Harrison had one since childhood and became an avid player and collector of the instrument. Elvis Presley was pictured with ukuleles more than once and in his film Blue Hawaii Fred Tavares and Bennie Lewis both played the instrument on the soundtrack recordings.

The ukulele, like the steel guitar, evolved in Hawaii from a musical instrument taken there from outside. In the case of the ukulele, its ancestor is a Madeiran instrument called the braghuinha. Although it has never been a major contributor to pop music since the dawn of rock'n'roll (name me a big hit since 1955 featuring the ukulele), there were some major stars in the twenties and thirties who played the ukulele, most notably Cliff Edwards in America and George Formby in Britain, both well-represented in this excellent boxed set. As with all the boxed sets on the Proper label, there is a booklet with extensive liner notes.

The first CD begins with a 1916 instrumental recording by Helen Louise and Frank Ferera's Hawaiians, with subsequent tracks by a variety of performers dated between 1927 and 1939, except the final track on the CD that dates from 1947. Among those featured are Madame Riviere's Hawaiians with Rose Kaohu as their lead singer, represented by three tracks. They made good music although Rose's vocals sound a little on the shrill side. Benjamin Nawahi plays ukulele on five tracks for three different groups (King Nawahi's Hawaiian's, Hawaiian Beach Combers, Georgia Jumpers). Sol Hoopii, who briefly worked with Benjamin Nawahi as a teenager, established his own reputation as a top musician. Sol began as a ukulele player but switched to steel guitar for his own recordings. Nevertheless, he always had a ukulele player among his musicians, so they qualify for inclusion and five of them are included. Other great musicians from the era make up the rest of the first CD.

America's most famous exponent of the ukulele (Cliff Edwards) gets most of the second CD, with the rest of that CD being devoted to Johnny Marvin, though not always under his own name.

The best thin about the Proper boxes is the thick detailed booklets and this is as good as it gets for a music from Hawaii which spread to America
Beginning with a recording made in 1916 the first CD also contains the song Ta Hu Wa Hu Wai recorded in 1934 by Andy Iona & his Islanders-the song which became the famous Hawaiian War Chant for a Jo Stafford hit in the 50s
CD 2 carries on the theme of ukelele music via America but the only sizeable hit featuring the instrument was Paul Evans' Happy Go Lucky Me,covered in the U K by George Formby who gets an entire CD
18 tracks on CD 2 are by America's most famous exponent of the ukelele-Cliff Edwards and rather amazingly the same CD includes a track by a group called the Knickerbockers-not though the famous garage band of the 60s
Others covered here are Jimmie Rodgers the Singing Brakeman,Bing Crosby,Louis Armstrong and Jimmy Davis on account of ukeleles being used on some of their records and the token girl singer Vaughn de Leath

As someone who plays Ukulele I really enjoyed Joe Brown`s CD. He is a great musician. As for the CD "With My Little Ukulele in My Hands" you might have to be either a musical historian or really into Ukes. I loved it. Great old time songs and performers.No regrets here.
