Jan AkkermanTalent For Sale ... CD
Imperial/Esoteric (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
Rare early solo material from Dutch jazz rock guitar eclecticist/genius Jan Akkerman – a late 60s album released in the Netherlands on Imperial after Akkerman's time in The Hunters and before his work with Brainbox and Focus! It's an early indication of his far reaching tastes and talent – playing in trio format for the most part, with couple bluesy psych jazz gems composed by Jan plus takes on diverse bag of covers including "Bag's Groove", "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", "Ode To Billy Joe" and "Green Onions". Original numbers include "Revival Of The Cat" and "Moonbeam". 11 tracks in all. CD

Mark NauseefPersonal Note ... CD
CMP/GAD (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Sharply angular fusion from the early 80s European scene – from that moment when some of the players on the scene had moved strongly past their roots in jazz and were open to a range of different styles! This doesn't necessarily mean rock – although Thin Lizzy's great Phil Lynott makes a fantastic appearance on one track – it's almost as if the music is in a jazz-plus mode – a bit like some of the New York downtown experimentation of the period. Mark Nauseef plays drums and percussion, and even uses his voice as an instrument at times – and the core group also features piano, keyboards, and great alto sax from Joachim Kuhn – plus keyboards from George Kochbeck, and some great percussion from Trilok Gurtu, who also vocalizes a bit. Jan Akkerman plays guitar, and maybe the album's like some of his best post-fusion experiments of a few years before – much more compelling than you might expect, and surprisingly timeless at points. Titles include "Doctor Marathon (parts 1 & 2)", "Chemistry", "Talking Drum", "Fillmore", and "Corsica". CD

✨✧ Joachim KuhnSunshower ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Full-on fusion from keyboardist Joachim Kuhn – done with a very jamming style that's certainly brought on by the presence of Jan Akkerman and Ray Gomez in the group on guitars! A few moments head towards the mellowness of Kuhn's earlier work – but overall, the set's in the tight electric mode of bigger fusion sets on American labels in the 70s – done with a key crossover sound, and production that's tight, but never too slick or commercial. Willie Dee sings vocals on "You're Still On My Mind" and "Midnight Dancer" – and other titles include "Preview", "Sunshower", "OD", "Shoreline", and "Orange Drive". LP, Vinyl record album
