Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922, is thrilled to welcome renowned author, musician, Grammy® award-winner, and new Premiere Radio Networks host Ian Whitcomb to its acclaimed roster of authors with the release of his new sing-along book and CD for ukulele players.Ian Whitcomb’s Ukulele Sing-Along is the perfect songbook collection for anyone who simply wants to have a good time singing and playing some of the greatest songs of all time. Most songs are sturdy standards from Tin Pan Alley, where music and words were created to be sung at gatherings in a show of togetherness.Selections in the songbook range from the Hawaiian Islands (“Aloha Oe” and “Yaaka Hula Hickey Dula”) and Dixie (“Waiting for the Robert E. Lee”), through heartfelt favorites (“M-O-T-H-E-R—a Word that Means the World to Me”) to the high-energy dance the “Charleston.” You can woo the person of your choice to timeless ballads like “Pretty Baby” and “You Made Me Love You,” then you can ease the tension with a comic number “She Knows It.” There are also four of Ian’s compositions, including “Have A Martini!” and “Do I Love You? Yes, I Do!” Start off by singing and strumming along to the recordings on the included CD and then proceed to perform them in your own style. All the tracks on the CD are performed by Ian (vocal, ukulele, and accordion) accompanied by his Bungalow Boys. Fans of the ukulele are sure to love this collection. As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving our environment, this book is printed on 100% recycled paper stock.Titles: Aloha Oe • Ambling Along • Beautiful Dreamer • Carolina In The Morning • Charleston • Do I Love You?
