4 stars Jan Akkermann for me was alone the guitarist of Focus. Then I have uncovered this live and I should say that is large music. Recorded to the "Montreaux Jazz Festival" in 1978 finds the better things in "Transitory/ Skydancer", in "Tommy", in "Pavane, and in "Azimuth". The guitar style of Jan is not ever invading and nevertheless is very technical. The album runs that is a pleasure succeeding also to excite. Certainly we is not opposite to a monster of the guitar. But to large guitarist, capable it to communicate feeling better than very other itself.
