SFJAZZ: Jake Shimabukuro

When: Sun., Nov. 9, 3 & 7 p.m. 2008

Jake Shimabukuro has been called the Hendrix of the ukulele, and at a time when musicians are routinely called the Hendrix of the banjo or nose flute, skepticism might be in order. But Shimabukuro really is doing things with the ukulele that no one has ever seen or heard. While he's not above striking a (tongue-in-cheek) scrunch-faced guitar-hero pose with his ax, Shimabukuro devotes most of his time on stage to his playing. Jake Shimabukuroplays Sunday, Nov. 9 at the Palace of Fine ArtsTheatre (3301 Lyon St., San Francisco). 7 p.m., $20-$50.
