Music Reviews

Many ukulele artists have released CDs and other music. Even Simon is planning his own EP!

We will take a listen to these and give an opinion. Of course, it's a matter of taste, but hopefully our descriptions and reviews might help you to select your next ukulele listening choice. We will concentrate on the good things of course, but if there's something out of place, unusual, or even in our opinion wrong, we will mention it in the pursuit of honesty.

Of course, we remember that many of these are not professional musicians, many are keeping up a regular day job as well as releasing music, but we have to listen to everything as music in its own right. Even if we are not critical, we will tell you what the music is like. A few exceptional CDs will get the "Cool Cat Ukes Recommended Album Award" - these are highlighted in bold below.
