Live - Then!
The willingness of Allan Holdsworth to allow "Live - Then!" to crawl forth from the vault (recorded in Tokyo in May of 1990) required twelve years of mental fermentation and no small amount of coaxing. "Live - Then!" recalls a prolific time in Holdsworth's recording career, and captures the range of dynamics and sustained musical detonations the group unleashed on their live audiences. Syd Schwartz, Vice President at Virgin Music International writes, "Since 'fusion' became a bad word somewhere along the way, I won't use it to describe the music on this release. Instead, I'll say that this is electric jazz of the highest caliber....this quartet vibrates with an intensity and near-telepathic interplay that needs to be heard to be believed. Jazzheads, progrock lovers, and jamband fans will all find much to enjoy in this sonic gem from Allan's archives....let's hope it's the first of many."
