4 stars Jan seems to have an ability to communicate rock music on guitar with an interesting relaxed jazz sound. His early rock origins have diminished and a more contemporary relaxed presentation is dominating."Crackers" displays a winning joyful sound. That is followed by "Angel Watch", a pleasant mix of guitar presentations with an orchestral string section sound on the horizon. Interestingly you can either follow with "Streetwalker", an uplifting sound, or "Floatin" a jazzy keyboard accompaniement. Finally the latin sound which would appear in his later works is presented in "Gate to Europe". This performer has excellant guitar capabilities and skills and his works are interesting.
