JAKKO M JAKSZYK – Secrets & Lies (2020)

JAKKO M JAKSZYK had a life-changing moment when he saw King Crimson playing Watford Town Hall on the 15th July 1971. Hearing the band that night instilled in the 13-year-old Jakko a determination to become a professional musician, setting him off on the road to what has been by any definition a remarkable career.
2020 sees the release of Jakszyk’s latest solo album, “Secrets & Lies” featuring KING CRIMSON bandmates Robert Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Tony Levin, and Mel Collins. The songs balances sen
Boasting guest contributions from SIMPLE MINDS bassist John Giblin, LEVEL 42’s Mark King and VAN DER GRAFF GENERATOR’s Peter Hammill, who co-wrote one of the songs, this is Jakko Jakszyk’s most accomplished solo release to date.
Captivating and impressive, this is a lite prog, pop mature album with melodic sensibility all over.
