Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro has taken the four-string, two-octave
instrument to places no one has gone before, performing awesome music that
ranges from jazz, blues, and rock to bluegrass, classical, and folk. His live
concerts are an out-of-the-box blend of stunning virtuosity, deep musicality and a
natural entertainer's flair.
Jake got his start at age four, when his mother gave him his first ukulele lesson.
Fascinated by the instrument, he eventually began playing regularly at a local
café, where his talent and reputation blossomed. Fast-forward several years and
Jake now has his own record label, and tours extensively in the U.S. and Japan.
Jake has completely rewritten the book on the possibilities of the ukulele -- and is
adding new chapters with every CD he records.Ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro has taken the four-string, two-octave
