4 stars "My highest performance is contained in the latest work. "

It is likely to appear to not only the appearance of posture in which the compromise is not permitted to the music at which he always aims the remark of Allan Holdsworth and the technology because of the music at which it aims always but the improvement of various knowledge.

The sound source of live is indeed few and will be able to be caught as valuable material in the work that he announced. The sound source that the listener can enjoy as live officially admitted is a little.

It is said that Allan Holdsworth is always thought that the guest should enjoy live to perform live at that time in the hall. They the always latest as well as work are performances and ideas. Or, it performs. should develop then and thereOr, a tension and a little trouble might be included. However, they are the enjoyments that only the person concerned all obtains and live of all music might be also similar.

Allan Holdsworth that was well informed enough of the real pleasure of live of that did not announce an enough, live album by the time this album was announced. There might have been a part that was called "Red Light syndrome" according to his remark. Feelings to his performance are made remarks withering if it knows that the recording is done for the recording of live once. The always latest as for any state performance and idea. And, he guesses that he understands the charm of live.

However, it is guessed that some sound sources of live and confirmations of the state of the recording, etc. were always done. And, this album became an official, for he live album though existence and the image of some Bootleg existed. And, the hall where this album had been recorded was a hall that he had always been choosing for live in Japan every year.

It is this live performance of Trio by Jimmy Johnson and Chad Wackerman that supports the music of Allan Holdsworth for a long time. Allan Holdsworth always paid respect and the respect as the highest partner with these two people. Those acts might appear remarkably in three new tunes at that time. And, the idea of the perfection of ensemble of the repertoire that Allan performed for a long time and the tune that keeps always evolving is the points that should make a special mention.

However, it is said that Allan included worry in the title for the title of the album. Allan voluntarily prepared machine parts for the recording of live in this Japan at that time in top condition. However, the staff in the hall has changed an original state disregarding the state that Allan prepared. It is said that Allan was really disappointed at this event. "All Night Long" became the title of the work by "All Night Wrong". However, the content and the performance of the work are continuous of transcendence and the technique with exactly high quality by these three people. The sound source of live of this is a very important sound source in the history of his music.

Improvisation of "Things You See" developed from an original tune might be a highlight of this album. The perfection and the explosion of ensemble that can be listened in this tune might be marvelous. The degree of the change in "Funnels" might be also exactly progressive compared with the original. It always changes according to the character and the situation of the musician who performs the tune performed for a long time and one space is created. Posture that they always challenge music becomes a new tune and is offered to the listener. "Lanyard Loop" and "Alphrazallan", etc. might have opened the new front for the music of Allan. The music always revolutionized will not stay.

Allan Holdsworth announced this live album during 2002. It can enjoy the past sound source collected to "Then" and the best album besides this album announced for the first time officially. 。It ..this album.. exists the known fan well valuable. Music of the fact and man who announced a live album however official heAnd, the listener might taste feelings that become one of the guests who enjoy live in this hall.
