Jake Shimabukuro - Grand Ukulele

Produced by Alan Parsons, ukulele phenom & youtube sensation Jake Shimabukuro's new LP 'fuses a multitude of genres' (Billboard) which can be heard on album highlight 'Island Fever Blues,' merging 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-0'), 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.'
