hi all

as we approach 2011, I thought it may be interesting to look back over the year in uke music.

What were your favorite / most listened to uke records of 2010?

Not necessarily released this year - maybe they're oldies but goodies - but what floated your boat this year in ukulele recordings? :)

Abe Lagrimas Jr Ukulele Vibes, Jake's Live, and Brittni Paiva's Four Strings, which is highly recommended as a holiday gift!

Brilliant- I've known Christopher since he was about 13...haven't seen him in a regrettably long time, looks like his talent on guitar extends to Ukulele, and that makes me happy.
Tell him old Mr. L is well impressed would ya?

One album that gets overlooked a lot is "Ukulele Jim's Authentic Down Home Marital Aid." (http://music.ukulelej.im/album/ukulele-jims-authentic-down-home-marital-aid) It's a fantastic record.

You have to mention Victoria Vox's "Exact Change." (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/victoriavox5)

Also Manitoba Hal's "Little Box of Sadness." (http://manitobahal.bandcamp.com/album/little-box-of-sadness)

And "Two Bedroom Apartment" from Danielle Ate the Sandwich (http://www.danielleatethesandwich.net/page-store.html) is damn fine, too.

Anything by Brother Sonny (Todd Baio) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jZMtbmmcmA) is awesome as well.

Totally agree Seeso. Jim is a sweet, smooth player with a warm, folky twang in his voice, and he sure knows how to write lovely, mellow folk tunes (and nice arrangements too!). Great choice.

+1 on the "Two Bedroom Apartment" I would do so with the others, but have not heard them, but will give them a listen on your word. Mike
