This month I was honored with a chance to interview Jim Beloff. The background music for this episode is Jim’s own ukulele concerto “Uke Can’t Be Serious.” You can hear the full version of it, including a live version, here.
You can find his music, books, and just plain awesome website for all things ukulele at Flea Market Music.
Here are a few of the artists that were mentioned. We encourage you to check them out!
Jim Beloff’s recent album can also be heard on Spotify.
Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s album “Facing Future” has lots of incredible songs, including the most famous one Jim mentioned.
Brittni Paiva did a great cover on HiSessions. It’s on Youtube.
Sara Maisel and Craig Chee do some lovely duets. Here’s one of my favorites on YouTube.
James Hill and Jake Shimabukuro…. well I trust you know about these guys if you’re listening to this podcast.
In case you need another instrument to buy here’s the Pono instrument I mentioned being demonstrated in two tunings.
Can you tell I like Spotify? Should I include other links? Let me know!
Great ukulele songs is a Spotify playlist I’m working on. It’ll be regularly updated to included all the greatest songs that I think show off the ukulele’s potential. Be sure to follow it if you can’t get enough uke, but save any songs you love since I can’t promise how long they’ll be on there!
Thanks for listening and aloha!
