Album Review

Guitar hero Allan Holdsworth often performs with his peers. Such is the case with this live setting recorded at a venue in Japan during a 2002 tour. On this release, the guitarist leads a trio featuring longtime musical associates, drummer Chad Wackerman, and bassist Jimmy Johnson. To that end, the respective musicians' talents are well-known entities. Wackerman and Johnson can handle the trickiest time signatures imaginable. Along with the nimble flexibilities and odd-metered excursions witnessed here, they exude a force of power that serves as a meaty foundation for Holdsworth's mighty licks.

A wonderfully recorded album, Holdsworth's climactically driven legato-based riffs are intact, as he also implements jazzy chord voicings and delicately stated fabrics of sound. But the trio raises the ante throughout many of these pieces, awash with moments of nuance and controlled firepower. In sum, Holdsworth's legion of followers should be pleased with a recording that should rank among his finest efforts to date.

My favorite Holdsworth album

As a musician myself (nowhere near the skill of Allan) I think that live albums are the best measurement of a jazz musician. Allan doesn't dissapoint in this outing. This album is full of terrifying guitar solos. Allan is definitely a musicians musician (hope I don't sound elitist) so if you can't deal with a little disonance here and there this probably isn't for you.

Get this one!

Really! You will be glad you did! This is a fantastic CD with great playing and the sound is fantastic......

Prognazi

Listening to this, you'll soon feel as though you're in this tokyo club sitting right in front of Allan. Extremely clean, lush recording. A must for AH fans.
Warning: Wackerman will sever your eardrums.

Guitarist Allan Holdsworth is widely considered to be one of the finest instrumentalists in all of jazz fusion, yet has never truly received the recognition that he so rightfully deserves. Born on August 6, 1946, in Bradford, Yorkshire, Holdsworth was originally taught music by his father, who was a pianist. Holdsworth didn't pick up the guitar until he was 17 years old, but learned the instrument quickly. After playing in local outfits (and learning the violin), Holdsworth relocated to London, where...
