In 2007 Allan Holdsworth & Alan Pasqua toured extensively with Chad Wackerman and Jimmy Haslip. This DVD captures their concert at Yoshi’s in the Bay area.

This a tour-d-force line up. Holdsworth on guitar and Pasqua on keyboards are the main creative writing force, while Wackerman adds his unique touch on the drums, and Haslip is on the bass guitar.

Up beat Jazz is the way I would describe it. This DVD has a running time of 90 minutes and is just delightful. It is not often that you get four of the worlds finest musicians to corroborate on a project. There is no ‘front man’ or ‘star’ they share the stage, and they share the kudos.

Yoshi’s offers the perfect setting for this kind of music, it is refined, yet comfortable. I have to admit that I am envious of the crowd that got to witness this event. To make it even better, the concert was filmed in High Def, and the quality of the video is nothing short of superb.

You can pick up your own copy of Allan Holdsworth & Alan Pasqua – Live At Yoshi’s from MVD, there is also a video clip of the band on the MVD web site.
