Jake Shimabukuro's 2012 release Grand Ukulele on CD

Produced by Alan Parsons (The Beatles' Abbey Road and Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon ), ukulele phenom & YouTube sensation, Jake Shimabukuro's new album fuses a multitude of genres which can be heard on album highlight, Island Fever Blues, which merges classical & blues over a fast-paced flamenco beat.

Elsewhere on the album, Jake tackles the playing style of the mandolin Gentlemandolin, rockabilly More Ukulele and surf rock Ukulele Five-0h, and even transforms his instrument to mimic the intricate melody of a music box Music Box. Grand Ukulele also features covers of Adele's Rolling In The Deep, Sting's Fields Of Gold and the Judy Garland classic Over The Rainbow

"Jake is taking the instrument to a place that I can't see anybody else catching up with him..." - Eddie Vedder, Rolling Stone article

Jake Shimabukuro does for the four-string ukulele what Tom Jones did for popular song. He redefines what his instrument can do and to whom it matters. Grand Ukulele - the follow up to his 2011 world music hit album, Peace, Love Ukulele - was produced by Alan Parsons and recorded with no overdubs.
