PRESS REVIEWS

"Langley Soars with conviction and maturity" Mark Ruffin, Downbeat

"Langley's disc proves him to be well steeped in the classic sound of organ-guitar tradition for whom swinging and bluesiness matter most. He's a warm, grooving, flowing player." Toronto Star

"...this is comfort jazz, warm music with strong grooves and a light effervescence. Langley's polished lines have their own innate sweetness." Globe and Mail

"Langley pursues hard swinging, clean, bold lines while maintaining firm melodies...this is deeply bluesy jazz" All About Jazz

"Guitarist Jake Langley invokes classic jazz guitarists like Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell, spinning clear-toned, luminous lines atop bluesy riffs and funk rhythms." Toronto Life


Vintage Guitar Magazine review

The Bordertown Bootleggers "Western Swing Band"

Tone Poet Productions

"Chances are, if you put an all-star band together to play Western swing, things are going to work. Such is the case with

the Bordertown Bootleggers.  The motivating force behind this one is jazz guitarist Jake Langley, aided by

Cindy Cashdollar on steel and dobro, Floyd Domino on piano, Danny Levin on fiddle, as well as guests Ray Benson and

Rick Mcrae on guitar, and Joel Guzman on accordion. The Langley-written opener, �Minor Imposition,� makes it obvious this is

going to be a fun ride. A minor-key swinger, great unison playing states the melody before a round of solos; LangleyCashdollar, and Levin all shine, with Langley running down the changes with jazzy agility that culminates in a delightful descending run. �String Theory� is another Langley original; a walking blues, it has a textbook bluesy-jazz solo. A take on the Hoagy Carmichael classic �Skylark� shows lovely ballad work from Langley before Cashdollar joins with lovely, melodic solo."  JH - Vintage Guitar Magazine
