Guitarist Allan Holdsworth has provided one of the most distinctive electric styles in the past 30 or so years, and continues to excel. He has a wonderful tone, a thoughtful use of sustain, big-time chops and a melodic approach that remains instantly recognizable and incredibly musical.
Favored Nations Records released a while ago a CD of Allan Holdsworth along with Jimmy Johnson on bass and Chad Wackerman on drums for a very nice live set in Japan recorded in 2002. It’s called All Night Wrong but there’s nothing wrong about that night musically. They dig into some earlier repertoire and forge ahead with conviction. It is great stuff.
