I think it’s safe to say that Jake Shimabukuro is the king of living ukulele players. His version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is justifiably legendary – you can hear it as part of this Coverville podcast. Jake’s most recent album is Grand Ukulele, an Alan Parsons project. The string arrangements work better on some songs than others, my favorite here being “Over The Rainbow.” I also loved his version of “Rolling in the Deep,” which you can stream below. My favorite original track on the album is “Missing Three,” written when Shimabukuro’s ukulele was missing its third string. The track was recorded with said three-string ukulele and backed by a twenty-nine piece orchestra.
