Jake Shimabukuro's latest release might be his most ambitious yet. Nashville Sessions finds the ukulele virtuoso in a power trio format, taking the traditional instrument into a realm of guitar-like distortion, freewheeling jams and introspective, highly electric passages.

All Things Considered follows up last week's John McLaughlin album preview and interview with Jake Shimabukuro and his new album, Travels. After a week of sampling the new release by the ukulele virtuoso, All Things Considered offers a finale: Jake live in the Atherton Performing Arts Studio! It's his third such appearance with local ATC Host Dave Lawrence, and the two explored music from the album, and the influences that went into it. 

Recently on All Things Considered,  local music legend and rising international star Jake Shimabukuro performed in our Atherton Performing Arts Studio ahead of his latest Jake Shimabukuro & Friends shows.

Jake Shimabukuro is performing his 3rd Jake Shimabukuro & Friends shows tonight at the Blaisdell Concert Hall and Sunday at the MACC. Before playing either, he returned to HPR for an exclusive performance / interview session in the Atherton Performing Arts Studio.
