These don't include his work with Tempest,Gong,Bill Bruford,UK Jean luc Ponty,or the Tony Williams Lifetime the bands he played in before his
solo albums.As a composer his music was abstract and complex,stimulating the senses.To single out one composition over another is meaningless
as they all are at a high level.His sideman were a who's who of progressive jazz rock.Drummers included Chad Wackerman,Vinnie Colaiutta and
Gary Husband.Bass players include Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Berlin and Gary Willis.
Eidolon is a 2cd set and well worth your time and money.
As I had not listened to or kept track of Holdsworth for over a decade, I was shocked to read of his passing – and just as shocked to read it on the front page of Yahoo News. For someone as on the fringes of the mainstream as Holdsworth was, the decent print and online media coverage of his death has been somewhat heartening.
Although I had lost touch with Holdsworth's happenings in recent years, I immediately recalled the irresistible, Oriental guitar-and-synth hook of "Tokyo Dream," one of the highlights of the 28-track Eidolon compilation and obviously one of the most memorable Holdsworth tunes for me.
There are plenty of other great cuts on the album, which like the box set both was overseen by Holdsworth and came out just a week before he left us. Actually, all the songs, most of them instrumental, are great, as they all feature Holdsworth's virtuosic guitar and synthaxe playing.
But in terms of overall composition, hooks, and general awesomeness, my top ten tracks are as follows: "The Sixteen Men of Tain," "Eidolon," "Ruhkukah," "Low Levels, High Stakes," "Peril Premonition," "Non-Brewed Condiment," "Tokyo Dream," "Temporary Fault," "The 4.15 Bradford Executive," and "Curves."
Although 70 is too young to go, and it would have been nice to have Holdsworth with us for a little longer, at least he made it to 70. In his final years, the distinctively eagle-faced Holdsworth looked like a cuddly, lovable old grandpa, which by all accounts he was.
Holdsworth's was a life well lived and well played.
Well played, Mr. Holdsworth. Well played.
