Jan Akkerman - Close Beauty (CD)
Dutch guitar legend Jan Akkerman releases new album
Close Beauty - out on October 25, 2019 via Music Theories Recordings.
Jan Akkerman, the renowned Dutch guitarist who shot to fame during the 60s and 70s with bands like Focus, Brainbox and The Hunters, and was once voted Best Guitarist in the World by Melody Maker, will release his new album ""Close Beauty"" on October 25, 2019 via Mascot Label Group/Music Theories Recordings.
"Close Beauty" is inspired from a simple notion, that when you are too close to an object you cannot see the real value. The instrumental album came together organically in a studio near Jan's hometown, and features Marijn van den Berg on drums, David De Marez Oyens on E-Bass and C-Bass and Coen Molenaar on keys. The stunning album cover, painted by Michael Cheval, fits the musical content of the album perfectly.
