✨✧ Jan AkkermanJan Akkerman Live ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A late 70s live set from space jazz/jazz rock guitar guru Jan Akkerman – rolling from spacious, sparely haunting atmospherics to tighter, sax and keys punctuated fusion jams! This live set was his Atlantic followed up his self titled album, and it grooves in similar territory – not as reliant on the more rocking side of his sound, but hardly lacking in spacey dynamics – with more of a fusiony jazz funk vibe in the busier arrangements. Players include Jasper Van't Hoff and Willem Ennes on keys, Cess Van Der Laarse on bass, Tom Barlage on sax, Bruno Castelucci on drums, and Neppie Noya on percussion. Titles include "Transitory", "Skydancer", "Pavane", "Crackers", "Tommy" and "Azimuth". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Jan AkkermanTabernakel ... LP
Atco, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Guitarist Jan Akkerman bridges many worlds here – deftly stepping between spare acoustic guitar modes and some much more dynamic electric ones – but all with a sense of care and vision that really makes the record come together! The set begins with a few themes from John Dowland, updated by Akkerman, but still played with an ancient sort of vibe – one that leads into some very cool fusion moments that mix centuries-old aesthetics with the modern – creating a sense of anachronism that really keeps things interesting. Gene Orloff handled some of the larger arrangements, but the focus is always on Akkerman's deft work on the guitar – and titles include "Britannia", "House Of The King", "Javeh", "Lammy", and "A Fantasy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Jan AkkermanProfile ... LP
Sire, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very heavy stuff from guitarist Jan Akkerman – almost more rock than jazz, with a hard-on jamming style that was the heaviest the European scene had to offer at the time! Some tracks have a bit of funky rhythm, but the real focus here is on the guitar – not only the jamming electric, but also Spanish guitar, alto lute, and a bit of bass on a few tracks – played with some sensitive acoustic complexity that really expands the emotive feel of the record. Other players include Ferry Maat on piano, Bert Ruiter on bass, and Pierre Van Der Linden on drums – and titles include "Stick", "Minstrel/Farmers Dance", "Kemps Jig", "Etude", "Maybe Just A Dream", and the extended "Fresh Air" suite. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has heavy wear on the bottom seam and some sun bleaching on front.)

✨✧ Jan AkkermanTabernakel/Eli ... CD
Atco/BGO (UK), 1973/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Compelling work from this European guitar talent – two albums on a single CD! On Tabernakel, guitarist Jan Akkerman bridges many worlds – deftly stepping between spare acoustic guitar modes and some much more dynamic electric ones – but all with a sense of care and vision that really makes the record come together! The set begins with a few themes from John Dowland, updated by Akkerman, but still played with an ancient sort of vibe – one that leads into some very cool fusion moments that mix centuries-old aesthetics with the modern – creating a sense of anachronism that really keeps things interesting. Gene Orloff handled some of the larger arrangements, but the focus is always on Akkerman's deft work on the guitar – and titles include "Britannia", "House Of The King", "Javeh", "Lammy", and "A Fantasy". Eli is a real standout! Jan Akkerman did plenty of unusual projects in the 70s, and this album may well be the best of them – an outing with vocalist Kaz Lux, whose unique phrasing really helps give the music a lot of focus! Akkerman's still hanging nicely between rock, funk, and jazz – but the use of vocals means that some of his guitar lines are a bit more spacious in ways that we really love, especially when they mix in these cool cosmic passages with the MPS-like keyboards of Jasper Van't Hof. The album's hardly a straight fusion album, but it's also not really a rock one either – more like a fusion set with vocals in all the right places – on titles that include "Guardian Angel", "Tranquilizer", "Can't Fake A Good Time", "Naked Actress", "Wings Of Strings", and "Strindberg".
