JAKE SHIMABUKURO - THE 'JIMI HENDRIX OF THE UKULELE'
NEW ALBUM 'TRIO' - OUT ON FEB.14, 2020 VIA MUSIC THEORIES RECORDINGS
Jake Shimabukuro has been redefining what the ukulele is capable of for the last 20 years, and on 14 February 2020, he returns with his new album 'Trio,' his first on Music Theories Recordings, a division of Mascot Label Group.
It was nearly 15 years ago that the world first caught notice of the stunning musical artistry of Jake Shimabukuro. The young ukulele player's gorgeous rendition of George Harrison's ballad 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' whilst sat in Central Park, became one of the most-watched clips on the then newly launched YouTube platform, and now sits at 16.5m+ views.
Joining Jake on this album are bassist Nolan Verner, who has been a constant presence on stage and in the studio for the past five year, and guitarist Dave Preston, who joined the fold two years ago.
From pastoral folk and traditional Hawaiian melodies to incandescent versions of beloved classics like Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' and Fleetwood Mac's 'Landslide', this album will change your perception of the possibilities of the ukulele.
