Live In Tokyo

Christian Fabian & Herb Ohta Ukulele/Bass unique jazz CD
Item# : CAP1059
A rare partnership of ukulele and bass that brings deep happiness and pleasure...two masters who play with great beauty and wit. A live recording, with the audience in Japan so moved they break out singing "I Just Called To Say I Love You"—one of a kind.

I am pleased to share with you the live recordings of the ukulele master himself, Herb Ohta, and the equally seasoned jazz bassist, Christian Fabian, from their performances in Tokyo. A rare partnership that has created sounds both fresh and heartfelt, reflecting the skills and artistry of both musicians.

Thanks to these tracks, you can now experience the Duo's take on many well-known songs in high definition anywhere, anytime. I hope the songs will make you as deeply happy as they have made me, that you'll want to listen over and over.
