This is an ambitious piece of work, which was recorded over a two-week spell during one hot summer in New York, and combines pieces for solo lute with rock music and an orchestra. Jan became fascinated with the lute during his visits to England and finally outbid a museum in Copenhagen to own one. He was forced to teach himself the instrument and the results of his endeavours can be heard on this excellent album.
