"Mix together members of a former folk rock band who have been smitten with the bubbly, happy sound of the ukulele, with friends from the jazz, classical, and early music worlds. Mix in a good helping of original tunes with covers from the “golden ages” of the ukulele. Season with some classical and world music melodies. Serve cool and fresh.
You’ll end up with something similar to Ukulele Drive".
About Peggy and her Jazz Choir Tamam:
Peggy makes a rightfully enthusiastic impression that inspires the others [in Tamam]. She leads the group with a hard hand, but clearly with professional skill, authority and pleasure. She deserves all of our praise and support, and we hope to hear [Tamam] more often!
