1967/ 1976
4 stars For certain moments my minds elaborates that Jan Akkerman is a great and insuperable guitar master teacher. But in rational reasoning Jan is only the European answer to Carlos Santana. Certainly Jan is more close to Classic Music and Blues and Jazz for Jan is only a form of expression as Rock or Folk.

'Jan Akkerman Live- Montreux Jazz Festival 1978' confirm what I wrote and, in addition, is also one of the more Prog album of my discography. Sure this last sentence is good because in this album Rock is mixed with Blues, Jazz, Classic Music, Folk for a unique final result: a music that is universal. Jan guitar is not invadent, arrangements are not invadents, feelings and emotions are invadents. And this is great.

Probably 'Jan Akkerman Live- Montreux Jazz Festival 1978' is not a great live album. But sure the music is great.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
