Lyle Ritz, Jazz Ukulele Master


No tiny bubbles for Lyle Ritz. He was a professional bass player, but he got his start on the ukulele, and released a ukulele album back in 1958. He’s returned to the little instrument to play “polite jazz” that’s surprisingly complex.

First Broadcast: 2008
Producer: Vince Patton
