The long wait is over! "When is Joel going to make a ukulele album?"  The answer is -- right now!
With six new originals, and seven fresh takes on some classic American songs.  It is NOT a children's album --
despite the hot pink album cover and playful design. No, this was meant for grownups, but safe enough
for kids -- there is no foul language. 

So the question now becomes: 
"Is it a crime to play the ukulele when all the world is blue?"
The answer comes in a hot pink wallet with a paper palm tree -- Ukulele Crimes!
