Review: Not what I expected. This is ukulele maestro Shimabukuro taking his instrument in a whole new direction: electric jazz fusion. Of course, he is brilliant here, as well. All originals except 7, 8, 10, & 13
If You Like: Al Di Meola electric, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Bob Brozman, Cyril Pahinui, David Gilmour
