On July 8th and 22nd, we will present a retrospective of the late Allan Holdsworth’s career, which spanned notable acts such as Soft Machine and Gong as well as many high-profile collaborations. Most settled in Jazz, Holdsworth had a very distinctive guitar style remeniscent more of a saxophone player than a guitarist. And if you wonder what that would sound like, tune in!
See you in the Cavern,
Part 2 of the Steely Dan set. More diversity here, dealing with the peregrinations of Becker and Fagen after the split of Steely Dan and their eventual revival. Album production work and collaborations with other artists let us expand the coverage even wider.
A great show,not drawing a big audience to begin with but one that grew to 19 at one point. Several compliments received on social media and in the cavern afterwards, so I’m feeling a little better.
Preshow had some extras from China Crisis and Rosie Vela, who are both unfairly overlooked.
Postshow included the title track from Two Against Nature, which incorporates all the disturbing bits of voodoo, and Walter Becker’s This Moody Bastard, which is about as autobiographical as he ever got.
