Scott, Tony featuring Jan Akkerman: Prism
Italian/American clarinet player Tony Scott recorded this duo album with Jan Akkerman in 1977. This is an original 1977 Dutch pressing.

Extract from Cees Schrama’s liner notes on a later reissue:
Nobody new what was going to happen on the 17 June at the Soundpush Studios in Holland.
Jan Akkerman, ex-FOCUS, nominated best guitar player in the world and Tony Scott, clarinet pollwinner for more than a decade and globetrotter, first met on the night before although it became a lively evening due to the eloquence of both parties and the “high spirits”, no mention was made of the recording on the morrow.
Since I was the originator of this totally improvised session I have to admit that I felt a bit uncomfortable. I shouldn’t have worried. From the moment those two headstrong musical magicians entered the dim lit studio an atmosphere of high tension pervaded the air and as the tape started rolling and the incense burned, great sounds started coming from Jan, behind his double-barrelled guitar and switchboard, and Tony in his favourite Lotus position, dressed in black, humming and playing. Bass player Wim Essed and drummer Bruno Castellucci supplied a perfect smooth wall to wall carpet for the two genii to float on.
