Description
I have a bit of time on my hands right now so I experimented with my uke. Inspired by a water-color sketch I did in Hawaii ...
Mix definitely open for criticism ... thanks for listening

Some jazz ukulele! Quite unexpected and very enjoyable! The spoken/sung/chant vocal approach is excellent! I love when it got heavy! Downloaded!

Nice jazzy feel. That uke has a beautifully warm sound - what sort is it? Vocal style fits well with the mood of the tune. I like the change to a faster pace in the middle. The layering of the uke tracks is entertaining! That bass is very good, too. Another gem, Stan!

Hi Philip,
Here is a link to the uke I own ... highly recommend it ... warm tone and stays in tune which is a problem with a lot of ukes.
Thanks for your comments. I had fun pushing the limits of my uke.
Cheers

Perfect for any summer day (or night!)
Stan, this was marvelous--wow, you know, I wish you were working some place up here so I could stop by and hear you work live, but at the same time, that's how your mix sounded--like I was sitting right by the bandstand. You just $(&@&!! amaze me every time--there's more than a little genius in you, this is for sure. Not one beef--highest marks for this! Michael

Nice Uke playing...
them little devils are so versatile,glad to see that they are making a popular comeback...though in my hose they never been away!

I have to say the most ridiculous Uke I have seen was an Alleged Bass uke .......it was just a little bigger than a baritone and had thick jelly strings ..it hardly made any sound at all....the sales guy was almost embarrassed by it ! hahah

Hey yeah this some kick ass uke laid back jazz chop style ......niiiiiiice

Hot Rats
I was crazy about the hot rats album in my youth ... I remember all the tunes being instrumental except forWillie the Pimp" with Captain Beefheart singing. Fabulous stuff ... even an almost is a huge compliment.
Thanks

enjoyable: art work and music. You're so loose and relaxed and still manage a well paced pieced with loads of energy.
