Jan Akkerman, the renowned Dutch guitarist who shot to fame during the 1960s and 1970s with bands like Focus, Brainbox and The Hunters, and was once voted Best Guitarist in the World by Melody Maker, releases the new solo album Close Beauty 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. One of Jan's most varied works, the stunning album cover painted by Michael Cheval fits the musical content of the album perfectly.
