Fresh Holdsworth

Thank you Cliff!

It's always a good day when there is fresh Holdsworth to hear. Chad Wackerman, my favorite drummer, put this together.

Douglas Kahn has some great stuff about jazz as letting go of ego and listening rather than expressing, which is exactly what I argue in The Ecological Thought.

Holdsworth, like Miles Davis, is the quintessence of music that listens to itself.

And Ornette Colman Is in the deeper extent of this by liquifying even the basis of synthetic tonality, the harmonic principle that underlies the music of Miles Davies and Allan Holdsworth.
