Free-form jazz guitarist Jan Akkerman and classically trained keyboard player Thys van Leer teamed up to form Focus in their native Holland, and recorded Moving Waves; one of the 70s most original and startling LPs. The epic track "Hocus Pocus" took the Reading Festival by storm, and Focus went on to the U.S. where they scored top 10 singles and albums. Long-time associate David Randall has assembled Akkerman’s journey, lavishly illustrated, from cult hero to jazz superstar.
