“Jake Shimabukuro has taken the four-string, two-octave instrument to places no one could have imagined back in the golden years of Don Ho, ranging freely across the music spectrum from jazz, blues, and funk to bluegrass, classical, and folk with the ease of a musician fully in command of the possibilities of his chosen instrument … Shimabukuro has completely rewritten the book on the possibilities of the ukulele.“ — Steve Leggett, Apple Music
