Third Stream

This is Jake Shimabukuro‘s 3rd Stream! Exciting Drums by Noel Okimoto and Bass by Dean Taba! Dragon reached position #5 on Billboard’s World Music chart. Yeah, Jake!!

So much fun playing with Jake! When he comes by your town, check him out!


Equator, this was a very dear tune we played in Honolulu all the time. Funny anecdote: I recorded a song at Dr. Trey’s studio and when I was done I asked him if he knew by any chance that super cool ukulele player that was on TV all the time. He shook his head and gave me a funny look… Jake? He asked. I think so! -I replied. – I’m his producer and you just recorded on his next CD! ha!!


Sunrise, there are a few versions of this tune. We recorded this one at Jose’s office with Christian Valdes (keyboards), Dave Farrell (bass), Mauricio Silva (guitar), Nick Rothouse (percussion), and Jose Aponte (drums).
