Jake Hertzog

Guitar Player Magazine is calling him “…the blazing wunderkind.” The Boston Phoenix has declared him “...the WOW! factor.” Award-winning jazz guitarist and composer, Jake Hertzog, is making it big in New York City. Jake’s third studio album, Evolution [Buckyball Records], just released this August 2011 has been quickly gaining international regard.

Jake's second studio album, Patterns [Buckyball Records] and Jake’s debut album, Chromatosphere (2009), brought him critical acclaim, including a five page interview in Guitar Player Magazine (June 2009) highlighting his unique technique and approach to modern jazz guitar.
