O’s Notes: Guitarist Jake Hertzog teams up with Harvie S (b), Victor Kones (d) and Michael Wolff (p) for ten new jazz tunes including a few covers. Jake’s sound is modern fusion with influences from Scofield, Metheny and rock guitarists. He has impressive techniques and puts them to good use on “Almost Like Being In Love”. We liked the mellow flow of “Back” and “Oberon” best. It is a new day in fusion and since Hertzog is only 22, we’ve got a lot more coming!
