Jan Akkerman, Heartware. by Jan Akkerman - 15 Tracks - 1:02:09. Release date 03/23/1998.

Jan Akkerman first picked up a guitar aged 5. Legend has it that he played accordian aged 3, and was entirely self-taught on the guitar, but in actual fact he took classical guitar lessons, studied at Amsterdam Music Lyceum for 5 years and won a scholarship. His father was a guitarist, and his mother played the accordian. The eponymous album by Jan Akkerman might have meant that there is a new step in his musical career after leaving Focus and/or a shift in the music. Regardless of any of this assumptions are correct, this output has a special and esteemed position in Jan's catalogue. His guitar playing is sometimes ornate, sometimes subtle and less aggressive than in the past but tasty at all times - jazz-rock and even fusion soundscapes have taken the lead here.
