"Hertzog uses a maze of overdubbed tones that recall the joyous creativity of a young Pat Metheny… The young guitarist has unlimited potential."
– Bill Meredith, Jazz Times
"Echoes of Metheny, Stern, and Breau (among others) surface in Hertzog’s playing, but his dazzlingly adventurous approach puts him in a jazz league all his own."
– Art Thompson, Guitar Player Magazine
"It’s almost safe to say that this sounds like nothing you’ve heard before. This is the guitar record you play when you absolutely, positively need to have your mind melted."
– Chris Spector, Midwest Records
"A new force in the world of jazz"
– Steve Roberts, ZNR Records
– Bill Milkowski, Jazz Critic & Author
“Jake Hertzog is a risk-taker and a mind-blowing guitarist. There is nothing else like it.”
