Jan Akkerman Live at the Montreux Jazz Festival Atlantic - This album was a followup to Akkerman's jazz/fusion self-titled recording of the prior year, this being recorded live in Montreux. Like the prior album (also reviewed by this writer), this recording validated the incredible wizardry and uncanny style of Jan Akkerman/5(3).
· A live document of Akkerman's continuing evolution into jazz-rock during the late 70s and early 80s, largely drawn from his previous year's eponymous release. Like many of his albums, half of it is inspired and half is drudgery. The first half runs from the ghostly introduction "Transitory" -- a piece not unlike the haunting releases by the ECM label in this same period -- to staccato guitar /10(20).
Jan Akkerman - Live at Montreux Jazz Festival () A perfect live album. This Jan Akkerman record is a real gem! After firs spin I was convinced this by far his best live album. The material comes mainly from his self-titled record (), though Tommy (of the Eruption suite) of Focus is added and two new compositions in the spirit of the /5(7).
