Album Review

Ukulele like you've never heard it before. Jake Shimabukaro plays virtuoso ukulele and mixes it up with synths and amps to experiment with new sounds segueing into jazz in recorded jam sessions; incredible range in style and approach

No FCC's; all instrumental; favorite tracks: 4, 6, 8, 9

1- Hemiola Blues: (1:23) – electro-uke intro

2- 6/8 –(7:06) – delicate soprano uke alternates with drums, bass for hypnotic jazz-like piece in 6/8 rhythm

3- Man of Mud (3:52) – starts out with standard driving electro-guitar rock rhythm, uke comes through more and more; overdrive distortion kicks in; abrupt end

*4- Galloping Seahorses (4:40) – begins with beautiful uke tremolo; beat picks up with light galloping sound; then really speeds up with some sustained drum work; lovely delicate ending

5- Motown (3:07) –comfortable little jazz tune opens up into heavy duty electro-uke

*6 – Celtic Tune (2:23) – floating on the hammered-on tones of the soprano uke; exquisite

7- Tritone (2:43) – gives you that Hawaiian feel backed with bass and drums; fast!

*8- Blue Haiku (5:41) – starts with pretty little soprano motif which repeats with drums; opens up; lovely harmonics punctuated with drumwork; tapers off

*9- Ballad (3:09) – starts with super-high harmonics; a little dreamy; bass underpins and anchors

10- F minor (3:14) – electro-uke starts vamp; bass repeats; drums and synth double; a little hypnotic

11-Kilauea (4:22) – distant distorted sound leads off, comes closer; electro-uke comes in; very electronic sounding; named for Hawaiian volcano; lots of noise for the diehards!
