Guitar Progressive/Fusion Legend Allan Holdsworth Passed Away At Age 70.

Just to greet one of most important and influential jazz fusion guitarists of all times……..

Legendary virtuoso jazz/fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth passed away on April 16, 2017. Born in Bradford, England, on 6 August 1946, Holdsworth had lived in Southern California for several decades. His complex guitar work was cited as an influence by musicians such as Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Steve Lukather, Robben Ford and more.

Allan Holdsworth playing Forever Until Sunday live in BBC TV show in 1979 at Oxford Polytechnic in the UK, the concert features all Bill Bruford’s group playing material from the band’s first two CDs.

Bruford were a band that former Yes and King Crimson drummer Bill Bruford formed and led in the late 1970s. Bill Bruford had assembled a band for his debut solo album, Feels Good to Me, with Dave Stewart (keyboards), Jeff Berlin (bass), Allan Holdsworth (guitar) and Bruford (drums). That album also had Annette Peacock on vocals, and Kenny Wheeler on flugelhorn. A second album was then released under the band name Bruford and was mostly instrumental, and on the live album The Bruford Tapes (a live show originally broadcast for radio station WLIR) and associated tour, guitarist The ‘Unknown’ John Clark replaced Holdsworth. Bass player Berlin sang the vocals on Gradually Going Tornado.  (information taken from Wikipedia)

This performance is taken from DVD Bruford: Rock Goes to College by Annette Peacock.

Listening A New Rock Band: Manu and Spaceship, from Paris.

This morning I was invited to listen this original song by French rock band Manu and Spaceship, by guitarist Manu Rodier. I was quite impressed by the quality of the song and the good sounding and that’s why I recommend you give it a listen. This clip is from a live recording from studio session, just a preview of “Mother Mother (Earth)” from their forthcoming debut album, still under construction. 
I hope you enjoy…
