Allan Holdsworth – Atavachron. Label: CREAM Records (3) – CR 280-2, JMS – 18643-2. Format: CD, Album, Reissue. wow, what a horn player!". but mr. holdsworth would not be amused. the most interesting parts of the record are where the non guitars magically morph into guitars. track 2 has such a moment, where what sounds like a reed instrument seamlessly becomes an electric guitar. but these things are so remarkably geeky and subtle that you would again be forgiven for not even noticing.
The album features drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, rather than regular collaborator Chad Wackerman; Wackerman did, however, write and supply drums for the song "Peril Premonition".
Atavachron Manifesto Records 2018. Still, the album is very enjoyable.
The SynthAxe was the interface that very uniquely interpreted a guitarist's skill into synth sounds. For guitarist Allan Holdsworth, it was yet a whole new way to achieve the sounds unvoiced in his soul in ways he just couldn't do with a standard guitar. Holdsworth has always sought a horn-like voicing with the ability to manipulate a note in a myriad of ways. He is known for being one of the most unique stylists on guitar, but it is the SynthAxe that allows him to go places a guitar can't reach.
This album has an average beat per minute of 112 BPM (slowest/fastest tempos: 90/134 BPM). Tracklist Atavachron. 1. Non Brewed Condiment - Remastered.
Allan Holdsworth - guitar, synthaxe Jimmy Johnson - bass Gary Husband - drums Steve Hunt - keyboards. Now I'm going to need to get a copy of this album. This live album is probably the best sounding solo work I have heard. Very clean, clear, and powerful sound.
Atavachron is the fourth studio album by guitarist Allan Holdsworth, released in 1986 through Enigma Records (United States) and JMS–Cream Records (Europe). The album's title and seventh track, as well as the cover art, are references to the "Atavachron" alien time travel device from the Star Trek episode "All Our Yesterdays". This marks Holdsworth's first recorded use of the SynthAxe, an instrument which would be featured prominently on many of his future albums.
