jake shimabukuro, one of the best ever
last night, jake shimabukuro played on late night with conan o'brien, and afterwards conan said twice that jake's performance of "while my guitar gently weeps" was one of his favorites over all of the years that he's been doing the show.
jake shimabukuro : "grandma's groove"
from the lp gently weeps (hitchhike records, 2006)
that's a pretty freakin' sweet compliment for a japanese-american ukulele virtuoso from hawai'i, especially considering the musical chops that conan displayed while the writer's guild was on strike...
