cbc radio 1 program As It Happens, Dec 12, 2008. Jake Shimbukuro and Yo-Yo Ma duet of John Lennon song "Happy Christmas (War is Over). Program host noted it's on a recent Christmas album release titled Yo-Yo Ma and Friends.

Cello and 'ukulele are sweet together. Especially when two of the best are playing together. Only other duet of this combo I've heard was on a James Hill CD.

Update: Album title is "Songs of Joy & Peace by Yo-Yo Ma", Jake & Yo-Yo duet is track #21.

I love Jake Shimabukuro and I love Yo-Yo Ma, and cello/ukulele is an interesting combination indeed. I haven't checked this out yet but I will now. Sounds great.
