Purple Haze
Jan's midi sample of Jimi Hendrix' Purple Haze!

Stormy Monday
Classic slow burn blues, Jan's fluid licks cut trough the ether on a cold and damp April evening.

My pleasure
Now incorporated in "Sylvia's Grandmother" this version ov Jan's fret-fest is taken from a live concert. This was lined up for the live CD but excluded because the piece featured in the Blues Route set.

House of the King / Janis
A medley from an early seventies Focus gig, two JA compositions back to back. Mike Vernon was especially fond of the piece "Janis" and here we are reminded that it is a beautiful melody.

Red Pool House Blues
This is the opener from Blues Route - a great bluesy blow-out, basically.

Fire
From one great master to another, here's Jan's midi interpretation of the Hendrix classic.

Third stone from the sun
Another midi rendition of a Hendrix classic.

Brandenburg Concerto No.6 in B Flat Major
Although we were well aquainted with Jan's love of early music back in the seventies, it is only since "Focus in time" that we have fully appreciated his love of Bach. Jan, of course, has always named the composer as one of his major influences and as he says without Bach there may have been no rock'n roll.
