Jake Shimabukuro | Irvine Barclay Theatre | Friday, 08. September 2017
Widely recognized as “the Jimi Hendrix of the ukulele,” Jake Shimabukuro has become a one-man army advancing the ukulele cause, turning the four-string axe into a flexible musical vehicle, capable of generating everything from crunching, effects-laden rock to sensuously swinging jazz. He coaxes an impossibly big sound out of this little instrument, playing an intoxicating mix of pop tunes, American Songbook standards and lilting originals.
