Show: Friday November 17, 2012 8:00pm
Jake Shimabukuro “fuses a multitude of genres” (Billboard) on the new LP, 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.”
