    Allan Holdsworth was born in Yorkshire, England on August 6, 1946. His dad was a pianist and it was he who initially introduced his son to music. Allan's very first instruments were the saxophone and the clarinet. He didn't start playing the guitar till the age of 17 and his style on the instrument was immediately influenced by his earlier experience with woodwind instruments. He was also very intrigued by electronic devices from an early age on.

    An innovative guitar player who puts numerous other guitarists in the rock and rock jazz fusion worlds in awe of his technique, vast array of harmonies, and very innovative ideas, Allan Holdsworth also gives one the impression that provided with a choice, he would have been a John Coltrane influenced jazz saxophonist instead of a guitar player! Holdsworth played with numerous groups in the Leeds area and then transferred to London in the late 1960s.

    By the early 1970s he had actually become one of the true innovators of jazz rock fusion guitar playing. He received global recognition in 1972 as a member of trumpeter Ian Carr's group. He got even more fame when he joined John Hiseman's band "Colosseum". He left this group in November 1973. Following this Allan Holdsworth appeared with some of the most popular fusion groups of the day including "The Soft Machine" and the "Tony Williams Lifetime" band. He also worked with different bands led by drummer Bill Bruford.

    Allan soon proceeded to playing with the rock group "Gong" in addition to playing on various recordings with Jean-Luc Ponty, Gordon Beck, Jack Bruce, and the group "U.K." While Holdworth's guitar playing significantly impresses others in the rock world, he is an unrelenting improviser at heart. In 1978 he formed his own group "IOU" with bassist Paul Carmichael and drummer Gary Husband. He then transferred to Los Angeles and continued new lineups with "IOU" through the mid 1980s.

    Allan Holdsworth's solo professional career ever since has emphasized instrumental music and periodic collaborations with jazz musicians including Billy Cobbam, Michael Brecker, Randy Brecker, and Stanley Clarke, sometimes in all-star bands. He has likewise tape recorded jazz standards on several occasions including the "None Too Soon" CD with jazz pianist Gordon Beck.

    In 1985 Allan Holdsworth, as leader of his own group, enjoyed excellent success in concert tours of California and Japan. Ever since that time he has ended up being acknowledged as one of the most prominent and ingenious of the rock jazz fusion blend guitar players of the day. His musical explorations with synthesizers and electronic sound gadgets have extended the borders of contemporary jazz. Allan continues to produce a regular output of impressive recordings - never playing it safe!
