“How to play like Allan Holdsworth” by Lindsey Boullt, Guitar Player Magazine, June 2004.
This article was included in the 2007 publication of “The GuitarPlayerBook 40 Years, a “best-of collection from the magazine’s four-decade history.”
…the original work, Composition, an unabashed collection of innovative compositions that include some of the most legendary & influential musicians of the last quarter century:
Jerry Goodman – violin (Mahavishnu Orchestra, Dixie Dregs)
Derek Sherinian – keyboards (Dream Theater, KISS, Yngwie Malmsteen)
Stu Hamm – bass (Joe Satriani, Steve Vai)
Atma Anur – drums (Cacophony, Howe, Kotzen, MacAlpine)
Jeremy Colson – drums (Steve Vai, Marty Friedman)
Jon Herrera – bass (Bass Player Mag Sr. Ed., Oz Noy)
Sukhawat Ali Khan – vocals (historic Indian/Pakistani lineage)
Peter Van Gelder – sitar (Zakir Hussein)
Mingo Lewis – percussion (John Mclaughlin, Mile Davis, Al DiMeola)
“...if any music is a product of the
Mahavishnu legacy...this is it!
(with...Zeppelin & Shakti thrown in...)
Very enjoyable and well done.”
