Description
Thanks to Jake Shimabukuro, the ukulele is no longer the somewhat jokey instrument of "23 skidoo," Tiny Tim, and Elvis Presley movies. Musical insiders such as Eddie Vedder, Olivia Harrison, and Jimmy Buffett have publicly praised his artistry in playing jazz, rock, blues, and traditional Hawaiian music on the instrument, thereby bringing it to new heights (and audiences). "Every time I played the ukulele or heard it I felt so at peace. It just brought me home…. I was just mesmerized by the sound," he reminisces of the first time his mother showed him a few chords. This PBS documentary follows the four-string virtuoso on a nine-month tour through the U.S. and Japan.

"If you have a hard time believing that a ukulele player can be a rock star, then you’ve never heard of Jake Shimabukuro. He was one of the original YouTube sensations. A video of him performing 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' in Central Park, uploaded in 2006, was viewed millions of times."—Salt Lake Tribune
