The Complete Jake Langley
Guitarist makes dazzling choices and then some
DAILY Music  March 28, 2014, by Tim Stegall
"...Jake Langley of Toronto may be a relative newcomer to Austin, having moved here in 2010, but he’s impressed huge swaths of the local music scene. Jazz heads upstairs at the Continental Club for Church on Monday, Tex-Mex two-steppers at raucous Los Texmaniacs gigs, and even Dupree fan Mike Judge can attest to Langley’s guitar prowess...."

Church on Monday guitarist Jake Langley transcends jazz
Music Story  March 28, 2014, by Tim Stegall
"...Haslanger counts off oldies staple "More Today Than Yesterday," a move typical of the crossover organ trios of the Sixties (Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Jack McDuff). Think Ramsey Lewis swinging through Dobie Gray's "The 'In' Crowd." Guitarist Jake Langley comps rhythm, intense decision-making washing across his face..."

"...September 10 and 11, 2010: Jack-of-all-trades Austin guitarist Jake Langley took blues piano legend Joseph William Perkins of Belzoni, Miss., into Yellow Dog Studios.

Music Review  June 14, 2013, by Jay Trachtenberg

Record Review
Music Story  March 28, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Four separate numbers vying for centerpiece status of Live at the Gallery tell the tale of this masterful capture. Staples of the Church on Monday band's weekly workout, Herbie Hancock's funk standard "Watermelon Man," Horace Silver pledge "A Song for My Father," and Erroll Garner's Clint Eastwood stalker "Misty" all orbit the 10-minute mark on their bandleader's skronk-n-smear, Jake Langley's cascading, hollow-body tones, and Dr..."

2013/2014 Austin Music Awards: Lucinda Williams plants one on Margaret Moser
Music Story  March 7, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...That same siege saw grinning Austin son Elias Haslanger raise his tenor sax in cuing the better part of his Church on Monday band-cum-service (Monday nights f-r-e-e in the Continental Club gallery): organ grinder Dr. James Polk, next great Austin axeman Jake Langley, drummer Scott Laningham, and bassist Daniel Durham..."

Kellye Gray
Music Review  February 7, 2014, by Jay Trachtenberg
"...Along with a slew of local stalwarts, Gray fashions her own alternatively spunky and after-hours sensibilities to these Lone Star gems. Guitar ace Jake Langley plays the blues, funky on Mac Davis' "In the Ghetto" and low-down for the singer's smoldering take on the Willie Nelson-associated "Always on My Mind." Red Young digs down on Hammond B-3 organ for a soulful jaunt on Roger Miller's "Dang Me," while pianist Kevin Lovejoy gently beautifies Gray's smoky ballad reading of the opener, "Help Me Make It Through the Night."..."

Music Story  August 30, 2013, by Tim Stegall

Elias Haslanger
Jazz Sides
Music Review  September 21, 2012, by Jay Trachtenberg
"...Haslanger's mentor and longtime collaborator Dr. James Polk on B-3 organ and former Joey DeFrancesco guitarist Jake Langley cut a formidable, three-pronged attack that eschews any muscle-flexing outside playing deep, earthen, blues-drenched instrumentals..."

Music Story  March 17, 2006
"...Hinson and the Gospel of Progress (Storybook) is a forlorn, twang-laden soul crush that vaguely resembles a Lone Star version of Leonard Cohen. Its follow-up will be on Jade Tree. – Greg Beets BLUE AEROPLANES11pm, Karma Lounge The Blue Aeroplanes is an artsy rock group from Bristol, England, who has drawn comparisons to the Velvet Underground because of their eclectic style and poetic sensibilities of group leader Gerard Langley..."
