The Greatest Day

Jake Shimabukuro - The Greatest Day

The Greatest Day, Shimabukuro’s most imaginative and adventuresome playing yet. Half of the album is devoted to originals, on which the instrumentalist reaches new heights of compositional distinction. On the covers, Shimabukuro’s prodigious skills allow him to achieve the impossible, transcending the material – no mean feat considering some of the classics he’s tackling. Among the self-penned tunes, there’s the blissed-out title track that transports the listener into the clouds. Shimabukuro wrote the song the night before going into the studio. “It came together so quickly. When I heard the final mix, I thought, ‘Wow, this has been the greatest day!’”
