Allan Holdsworth has captivated audiences with a unique and expressive style of guitar playing that has won him a devoted fan base. Well-known in musical circles, he has performed with such artists as Jean Luc Ponty, Tony Williams, Bill Bruford, Stanley Clarke, Gordon Beck, and Chad Wackerman, and groups such as John Heismanâ€™s Tempest, UK, Planet X, and Soft Machine. In 1980, his own brand of jazz-fusion would be more personally realized after he set out on his own to record his first solo effort, I.O.U. featuring Gary Husband and Paul Carmichael. Look for several new Holdsworth releases due out in late 2007.
