His next stations were The Jerry Hahn Quintet (1967, one record for Arhoolie Records) and the Gary Burton Quartet with Roy Haynes and Steve Swallow (1968, three albums). Then the Jerry Hahn Brotherhood was initiated by him in 1970. This formtion has been described as one of the “trailblazers of rock-jazz integration”. Later he joined the Bennie Wallace Quartet and he also performed, toured, and recorded with former 'Cream' drummer Ginger Baker. Hahn has a Doctor of Music degree and taught at several universities. He continues to perform, record, tour, and conduct guitar clinics. Hahn was a columnist for the Guitar Player magazine and wrote a textbook for jazz guitar.
