Claude Nobs: We All Came Out To Montreux...

Read "Claude Nobs: We All Came Out To Montreux..." reviewed by Ian Patterson

Montreux Jazz Festival is fifty. It's a significant milestone and cause for celebration. No doubt there will be an added festive element to this year's edition of the festival, founded by Claude Nobs--along with pianist Géo Voumard and writer René Langel--in 1967. Yet for many, the celebrations will be tinged with sadness due to the absence ...


Jake Hertzog: Well Lit Shadow

Read "Well Lit Shadow" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

A suite for solo electric guitar that takes inspiration from images of particle collisions isn't exactly your garden-variety jazz release. But, then again, Jake Hertzog isn't your garden-variety jazz guitarist. Over the course of the past decade, Hertzog has established himself as a powerful and unique voice on his instrument. He's worked out his own brand ...


Jake Hertzog: Throwback

Read "Throwback" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Jake Hertzog: Evolution

Read "Evolution" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Il giovane chitarrista Jake Hertzog giunge al terzo album da leader in studio, offrendo un'ulteriore conferma della bontà del suo progetto. Senza divenire servo della sua ottima tecnica, Hertzog si ciba di curiosità e di voglia di esplorare in maniera poco rituale un jazz-rock progressivo raffinato, elegante, ma anche carico di adrenalina e di sostanziosi grumi materici. Hertzog sembra ...


Jake Hertzog: Evolution

Read "Evolution" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Guitarist Jake Hertzog's previous recordings as leader, Chromatosphere (That's Out, 2009) and Patterns (Buckyball, 2010) created a stir, with reviewers comparing his talent to just about every jazz and rock guitarist who's ever been described as a legend, from the 1940s on. What this hints rather broadly at is Hertzog's cross-generational approach and stylistic variation which ...

Meet Jake Hertzog:
Jake Hertzog's accomplishments as a jazz musician mesh with his love for the rock idiom, creating almost an entirely new musical language.

Jake Hertzog: Evolution

Read "Evolution" reviewed by Mark Redlefsen

Evolution is the third solo outing from guitarist Jake Hertzog, Guitar Player Magazine contributor and member of the rock band, The Young Presidents. Although the album appears weighted towards jazz fusion, it is the rock-inflected phrases woven into the music that saves it from running into all-too-familiar jazz guitar footprints. The generational sound of this recording ...


Jake Hertzog: Patterns

Read "Patterns" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Sin dall'apertura dell'iniziale “Mcjazz" il chitarrista Jake Hertzog conferma l'ottima impressione che il suo album di esordio Chromatosphere aveva suscitato nel 2009. Il suo fraseggio è preciso e pieno di energia. Il suono che proviene dalle sue chitarre è carico di tensione. Non si può ignorare. La sua padronanza tecnica gli consente di miscelare le influenze più disparate che lo ...
