Trying to listen to more solo uke players- artists who have recorded solo ukulele pieces. No drums, no bass, no guitar, no second uke.

So far I've come up with two: Jake S. and John King.

Who else has done awesome solo uke recordings?

Herb Ohta Jr., Ohta-San, Kalei Gamiao, Kris Fuchigami, Tobias Elof, are all guys who DO play solo. I don't know if all of them have recorded solo.

Soloists Eugene "Jon" Ukulele and Brad Bordessa come to mind.

Gordon Mark, Benny Chong, Byron Yasui - in fact, all three are on a pretty great album called The Art of Solo 'Ukulele (http://www.amazon.com/The-Solo-Ukulele-Gordon-Kanno/dp/B000703UEG).

Samantha Muir is incredibly talented. She posts on YouTube as 4Uke.
Mainly classical stuff but such a fine player.

Thanks for the tips! Hadn't known about the Art of Solo Ukulele album... sounds great.

Just in case you have trouble finding it - call the Honolulu Museum of Art (http://honolulumuseum.org/). I bought mine in their gift shop and if I remember correctly, it was their own release and not on a music label.
