Welcome to the website of Jazz Guitarist/Composer
Jake Hanlon


BiCostal Collective IV will be available in May 20 of 2014 on OA2 Records.  BiCostal Chapter III just won ECMA Jazz Recording of the year.  The 4th album of the series is a project I played on and it's what you'd call a modern soul jazz album, lots of groove, soul and great writing!

Stay tuned for purchase information on that.

My newest Album "Autumn Song" is now available for purchase on iTunes!


"Autumn Song is masterfully crafted and conceived, sounding like a long suite, using the free inspired Abscission pieces to connect the original compositions. Abscission is a biological term for the shedding of various parts of an organism, usually for the overall health of the organism. Paul and Jake use this concept by discarding the contrived approaches to playing duo, allowing them the freedom to explore all the tonal shades of their instruments, which brings out the real beauty and warmth of each piece."
