Jimmy Johnson Anchors 1986 Allan Holdsworth Live Album
Three years after his passing, a new live album from guitar genius Allan Holdsworth is available to the public. Frankfurt ’86, which is the third in a series of posthumous releases from Manifesto Records, is a double-disc CD/DVD package that showcases the guitar genius during the Deutsches Jazz Festival on February 16, 1986. The nine-song set has been digitally remastered from the original tapes.
As always, Holdsworth was backed by an equally incredible band, including drummer Gary Husband, keyboardist Kei Akagi, and bassist Jimmy Johnson. The concert includes great performances of tracks from Atavachron, which would be released just months later.
