Jake Reichbart - Is She Really Going Out With Him?And so it is with great pleasure that we tell you about Jake's stellar new album Is She Really Going Out With Him? The disc features 12 jazzy fingerstyle guitar instrumental covers of timeless pop songs including Joe Jackson's title track (a funky masterpiece of an arrangement), Steely Dan's "Kid Charlemagne," Chicago's "If You Leave Me Now," Tears for Fears' "Shout," and Spandau Ballet's "True." You can hear sample previews of all 12 tracks in the video below.
