Jake Sanders

Jake-Sanders-774x321“Guitarist and banjoist Jake Sanders must have gotten tired of being told that his first name — in Twenties slang — is a synonym for great, as in ‘Everything’s Jake!’ meaning things couldn’t be better . . . but the name fits.

Youthful Mr. Sanders creates lovely melodies; he knows how to swing; his musical vocabulary is broad and rich without ever being artificially enhanced.

JAZZ LIVES viewers have seen him here as one of the guiding lights of the Cangelosi Cards…. I encourage you to get out and hear him!” – Michael Steinman from Jazz Lives
