tbqh I like Holdsworth with The New Tony Williams Lifetime (Believe It is great and wow Million Dollar Legs is kind of a stinker although has a few okay cuts) and on the Soft Machine album he played on and I don’t mind De Meola with Return to Forever but that kind of guitar fusion is not my main interest. I actually think Holdsworth is brilliant but his records don’t actually rate for me. I guess same with Di Meola now that I think about it. I prefer my fusion to be more in the jazz realm than rock.....

I should mention the John McLaughlan & Carlos Santana LP “Love Devotion Surrender” is pretty ballin’ though

"The 16th man of tain" and "Wardenclyffe Tower" are my fave Allan Holdsworth albums!

If you like Holdsworth then you should check out Darryl Gabel: he has almost the same style but released only 2 albums iirc

Chick Corea is also killer: can;t understand that he;s not mentioned yet! (great music, crap name haha!)

Pat Metheny is good to check out

FUCK!

I almost forgot: Ozric Tentacles......I think they belong to progressive rock, but they do have alot of fusion influences. They have also have alot of electronic parts in their music.

My fave from them is "Erpland" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le43M7SL9_g

Saw them twice in the last 3 years. Unbelievable band live and a lot of trance DJs list 'em as one of the main influences. I'm not so much into albums, simply because I've discovered them only three years ago, which is nothing for their massive discography, so I couldn't find the time to get into it properly.

I remember a lot of trance musicians raving about Ozric Tentacles back in the '90s. I am not too keen on those arpeggiated leads though.

Is Tarkus considered to be a fusion album?

Bruford's One of a Kind keeps popping up in discussions about fusion. It is apparently considered the pinnacle of the genre by many. Any opinions on this album?

Probably not, but regarding the high amount of prog mentioned here, it would kinda fit the bill.

Agreed. I much prefer Holdsworth on other people's records over his solo stuff. His playing on "Believe It" is phenomenal.

The first UK album with Allan Holdsworth is amazing. That said, the second without him is amazing too.

This seems to be the case, yes. I especially like his work on Bruford's One of a Kind.

This monster of an album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSK8ZiJu_mk

I've also been listening to the Wadada Leo Smith - Najwa album a lot.
