Jazz:

Lyle Ritz ~Any Album~
Byron Yasui ~I think he only has one album~
Benny Chong ~same as Mr. Yasui~
Bill Tapia~does he have an album? he's on youtube at least~

I don't know any strictly blues ukulele albums that I could recommend.

Check out the YouTube site for GUGUG. He is from Scotland and plays abunch of different ukuleles with a buddy. ON a couple he has a friend join in on the blues harmonica and they ROCK. He was supposed to be recording a CD that would be available soon, but I haven't seen it posted yet. You haven't heard the blues until you've heard this guy.

Bill Tapia does have albums, some real old stuff and at least one contemporary one.

I'd add Herb Ohta to your list of jazz playerrs,

Del Ray plays Blues Uke along with guitar. I'm taking a workshop from her when she comes to Denver in Oct.

You can get her CD's there.
