Hawaiian-born Jake Shimabukuro has transformed the four-string ukulele into an infinitely pliable musical vehicle, capable of generating everything from crunching, Hendrix-influnced rock to sensuously swinging jazz. Rocking back and forth on his heels, his wrist moving at a hummingbird blur, Shimabukuro coaxes an impossibly big sound out of the little instrument as he plays a mix of lyrical originals, pop tunes (“Here, There and Everywhere”) and American Songbook standards (“Somewhere Over the Rainbow”).
