Jake's debut album, Chromatosphere, continues to bring him critical acclaim, including a five-page interview in Guitar Player Magazine (June 2009) highlighting his unique technique and approach to modern jazz guitar. Both albums, recorded and produced by Grammy Award-winner Joshua Paul Thompson, feature some of New York's top musicians. Jake was the Grand Prize winner in the guitar competition at the 2006 Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. In the festival's 44-year history, he holds the title at 20 years old as the youngest ever prize winner. Last September, Jake was invited to the famous Ellnora Guitar Festival.
