Who's to say that just because the ukulele is small in stature, it has to make a small noise as well? In this release, ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro teaches viewers how to make a big noise with the miniaturized guitar. A trio of music videos and a few live clips show Shimabukuro doing what he does best, and an interview with the musician offers insight into just what drives his remarkable creativity.

Reissue with latest remastering. Comes with new liner notes. The first of two sets recorded during a weekend in 1961 features the Miles Davis Quintet at a period of time when Hank Mobley was on tenor and the rhythm section was comprised of pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Jimmy Cobb. What is most remarkable is the way Kelly fits into this particular blend of the Miles band. Kelly's interplay with Chambers is especially brilliant, because his sense of blues phrasing inside counterpoint harmony is edgy and large, with left-hand chords in the middle register rather than sharp right-hand runs to accentuate choruses.
