ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With a title that echoes the classic 1950s Lyle Ritz album on Verve, How About More Uke? is a fine addition to the canon of instrumental jazz ukulele recordings. Curt Sheller on ukulele; Eric Schreiber on 5-string electric bass and Ed Rick on drums collaborate on a well-chosen assortment of classic tunes with chops to spare. Curt Sheller brings his 30 years of jazz guitar and ukulele jazz improv technique to great tunes like "My Favorite Things," "Blue Bossa," "Satin Doll," "Georgia," and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." as well as a couple of high originals by Curt. The trio also tackles Rain Shine by jazz guitarist and composer Chuck Anderson.

Motivated by their love of jazz and improvisation. Curt, Eric and Ed explore a traditional and contemporary jazz repertoire showcasing the ukulele in a non traditional setting. Substituting the ukulele for the piano or guitar in the classic bass and drums trio. How About More Uke? goes a long way in dispelling the myth that the ukulele is a toy.

In the summer of 2003, Curt fell in love with the ukulele and all its possibilities. Curt’s journey exploring the ukulele began on a CampFire USA trip to South Dakota planned by my wife, Bernadette. He searched the Internet for a small travel guitar to bring on the trip, and rediscovered the ukulele instead--after a twenty year break.
