“Hertzog keeps listeners constantly on their toes, zigging when you might expect him to zag, and blazing through unorthodox intervallic maneuvers with an ease that would likely give players twice his age pause. Jake Hertzog is one of the finest young jazz guitarists on the scene”
— Barry Cleveland, Guitar Player Magazine
“...undeniably killing. Guitar aficionados, take note of this stellar six-stringer.”
— Bill Milkowski, Jazz Critic & Author (Jaco: The Extraordinary and Tragic Life of Jaco Pastorius)
"THE YOUNG AXE MASTER changes things up just a bit by adding Randy Brecker to his regular trio for some extra fusional zip. Other than that, he’s still that super picking tyro that knows how to wield an ax like a knife. The only real difference here is that he’s hit the ripe old age of 27 and his playing reflects the maturity and depth picked up along the way. Other than that, he’s just as right on as ever. Hot stuff throughout."
A well-placed group of collaborators — from the Beach Boys’ Blondie Chaplin to Living Colour’s Corey Glover to the always-funky Ivan Neville — give life to the Young President’s aptly named Coalition. ... Come, if you must, for the big name contributors, but stay — you really must — for the smart songcraft, flinty licks and transformatively present narratives constructed for them by Hertzog and Kaneff.
