Never heard of the guy but for sure he is something special. Thanks for the heads up I just purchased the CD

In the George Harrison tribute there was a touching moment when Paul McCartney sang "Something" accompanied by the uke. He introduced it by saying that if you went to George's house that inevitably the ukes would come out. I can envision these two immensely talented musicians with all their fame and wealth enjoying the simplicity of the ukelele. The songs they must have played.
Good thread - I'm suprised nobody has mentioned Cliff Edwards, aka Ukelele Ike who was rather popular in the 20's and 30's; I have a few CD comps of his work and they are quite good if you care for early jazz/ragtime/vaudeville/saloon-type music, as well as a few off-color novelty pieces. Jiminy Cricket!
