Recorded live during the European tour in May of 2007. Edited by Jimmy Haslip.
Produced by Holdswoth, Pasqua, Haslip, Wackerman. Executive production by Leonardo Pavkovic.

Album Profile:

It's the live classic that's waited for three years to happen. Reuniting for a fall 2006 tour to pay tribute to time spent in the mid-'70s fusion juggernaut, the New Tony Williams Lifetime, guitarist Allan Holdsworth and keyboardist Alan Pasqua recruited Yellowjackets bassist Jimmy Haslip and in-demand drummer Chad Wackerman for an exciting cross-section of material that first saw the light of day on a DVD recorded at Oakland's legendary Yoshi's. Now, Blues for Tony takes the best material from that tour and makes it available in CD form, creating an exciting "you are there" double-disc of music that comprises a full evening of music.

Holdsworth's classic "Fred," Pasqua's equally iconic "Protocosmos" and Lifetime bassist Tony Newman's energetic "Red Alert" are all there from Believe It, New Lifetime's now iconic first release, but here stretched out with plenty of space for relentless soloing from everyone in the group. The 2006/2007 tours would have a lasting affect on Pasqua, inspiring him to return to higher octane fusion for his solo recordings. On Blues for Tony, he plays with the kind of unfettered abandon and deep sophistication that so defined his work with Williams, a direction he largely deserted for more elegant acoustic outings like 1995's Dedications, from which the darkly balladic "San Michele" is culled, but is here reinvented as a potential fusion classic, with its Mahavishnu Orchestra-like arpeggios, Pasqua's gritty electric piano and Wackerman's thundering kit.

In addition to material from Believe It, the group revisits two of Holdsworth's own well-known classics: the change-heavy "Looking Glass," from 1985's Atavachron, and funkier "Pud Wud" from 1990's Sand, the latter opening with an atmospheric unaccompanied solo from Holdsworth that asserts his continued dominance as one of jazz's most harmonically distinctive players, and Haslip's most impressive solo of the set - the perfect confluence of pure virtuosity and in-the-moment melodic composition. Holdsworth's velvety smooth tone is more vocal-like than it's ever been, but equally there's an edge that's reemerged in recent years but has remained undocumented - until now.

Wackerman contributes "The Fifth", undisputable evidence that fusion can swing. Easily filling the late Tony Williams' shoes by honoring his spirit rather than imitating him, his playing on Blues for Tony finds the nexus point of spare economy and unabashed power. Pushing "Protocosmos" and the opening section of the collective composition "It Must Be Jazz" with visceral groove, Wackerman also demonstrates, in the latter song's second half, an equal propensity for greater freedom. He works hand-in-glove throughout with Haslip, who may have grown up as a fan of New Lifetime, but is now an unequivocal equal and perfect fit for the group's combination of technical prowess and masterful interplay.

Emerging on the British scene in the early 1970s with groups including Ian Carr's Nucleus, Soft Machine and Tempest, Allan Holdsworth's remarkable fluidity and profound vernacular quickly gained international attention, resulting in stints with Jean-Luc Ponty, Gong, UK, Bruford and, of course, Tony Williams. From 1983's Road Games to 2004's Then!, the guitarist has released a string of groundbreaking and essential solo albums that, with their sonic innovations and unmistakable harmonic language, have influenced guitarists worldwide. Since playing in New Lifetime, Alan Pasqua has been a busy session player for over 30 years, working with everyone from Gary Burton, Peter Erskine and John Patitucci to Bob Dylan, Alice Cooper and Santana. He began focusing more heavily on his solo career in the mid-'90s, with albums including 1993's stellar Milagro, 2005's sublime My New Old Friend and 2007's electrifying Antisocial Club.

Starting out charting complex territory in Frank Zappa's early-'80s groups, Chad Wackerman quickly became one of Holdsworth's drummers of choice in addition to a busy session career with artists ranging from Barbra Streisand and Bill Watrous to Steve Vai and Andy Summers, and has since built a small but significant discography as a leader, from 1992's Forty Reasons and 1994's The View, both featuring Holdsworth, to recent 2000’s Scream and 2004’s Legs Eleven. Haslip's primary focus has been Yellowjackets, the group he co-founded with keyboardist Russell Ferrante in 1980, but he's also released two albums as a leader and three with the collective supertrio Jing Chi, played with the late Tommy Bolin, Joe Cocker and Rod Stewart, while continues to be an in-demand player with artists including Bruce Hornsby and Terri Lyne Carrington.

Blues for Tony brings four masters of their instruments together for an exciting set that may have started with a tribute in mind, but quickly turned into something much more. Fusion at its best, it combines all the prerequisite energy and virtuosity with a deeper language and freer approach, as Holdsworth, Pasqua, Haslip and Wackerman deliver the goods on what will certainly be one of 2009's hottest jazz and fusion releases.

Here i just wanted to show off the versatility of this beautiful instrument.
You may recognise Old School by Rob Marcello, The Pretender by Marco Sfogli, and elements of Guthrie Govan's Larry Carlton Jam Track. The first example is improvised over the Metalcore backing track.
I literally got the guitar yesterday, and thought I have to make a quick video!

And then we will have the 2009 Champion!The 2009 UK Air Guitar Championship Final is near, the current UK Air Guitar champion Cozza is ready for his first night as host and with a capacity crowd expected its going to be mayhem...
UK Air Guitar News

UK final day with Phillip and Holly27th Sept 2009The day of the UK Air Guitar Championships final is only days away, we have 18 finalists at present and we are leaving 2 entry places for whoever fancies their chances on night, just the way that Cozza did back in 2006. On final day, Cozza will be taking 2 of this years contestants on to the ITV This Morning show with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, to give all a lesson in the fine art. Last years runner up Stephen 'Twanga Joe' Gagola and the current Irish champion Declan Gillick 'Deku-Chan', will also be appearing and rumour has it that they will take on David 'The Hoff' Hasselhoff in air-a-long in the studio on the day. Then the 3 of them will have to leg it to Brighton to warm up for the final. We are all praying to see Gordon the Gofer. We will smash world record..29th July 2009This is the year of record breaking. In association with the Royal Air Forces Association, we will be attempting to break the current world record for the most amount of people air guitaring at the same time at a staged event. The current Guiness world record is held by 'Be your best rock challenge' who managed 1261 people rocking to the Foo Fighters Pretender at sheffield arena on July 11th this year. We will be attempting to get nearly 3000 people invloved at Wolverhampton race course on Sat 3rd of October to raise money and awareness for RAFA. For more details Click HereThe Future of UK Air Guitar..21st July 2009Since 2006 Colin 'Cozza' Fulker has been the reigning champion with 3 consecutive wins, and to this day is the UK Air Guitar Champion. The competition was thrown into disrepute as it was deemed as unfair that Cozza should be allowed to take part furthermore as no-one else gets a chance because of the fingerlicking skills. So, we have decided to hand the true Air Guitar champion the ultimate prize, which is the rights to the competition, to run and host forever! In return a vow of air guitar celibacy has been taken to ensure a brand new 2009 champion..

Win a Hagstrom guitar and Nitro snowboard!

This Special Edition package is a guitar give-away with a difference

Nitro1Nitro2

Yep, you read it correctly: this issue TG’s giving away a guitar and a snowboard. Extreme sports and guitar music have always been heavily linked, especially if you’re a guitarist who is also a member of the Nitro International Snowboarding Team...

That’ll be Jonas Hagstrom, then. “Even though I’ve got a hectic schedule with the snowboarding,” Jonas told Hagstrom, “I try to put as much time into my playing as possible.”

With the snowboarding season approaching, the Swedish-born snowboarder/twanger has teamed up with snowboard manufacturer Nitro and his guitar-building namesake to produce a signature package, comprising a Hagstrom-branded Nitro Ultra Volume snowboard and Hagstrom Ultra Swede.

The guitar has Hagstrom’s extra-thin Ultralux neck, resinator fretboard and Custom 58 humbuckers. At Jonas’ request, the incomplete board graphic is continued on the body of the guitar, with each component completing the full design.

Thanks to the generous folk at Hagstrom UK (www.hagstrom-guitars.co.uk), we’re offering one lucky reader the chance to bag the combo.

Michael Angelo Batio: 19.5 notes per second... willjay where are you?

According to Michael Angelo "The fastest guitar I ever played in my life was on Shred Boot Camp." I can vouch for the fact that he was clearly picking 19.5 notes per second and Dave Martone was finger tapping 21 NPS! Chris Ranier clocked in somewhere around the same speeds! Ya gotta hear this to believe it!




Shred Boot Camp has finally arrived! The new comic book/CD package by Tobias Hurwitz and Jesse Smolover. It’s the first comic book that teaches shred guitar while you enjoy an action packed story and jam out to some awesome metal, all at once! Proudly featuring the fastest and wildest shredding of: Michael Angelo Batio! Dave Martone! Tobias Hurwitz! Glenn Riley! Kurt bell! & Chris Ranier! Hear guitars played at supersonic speeds up to 21 notes per second! Think Guitar Hero meets Enter the Dragon! Many of the characters are based on real rockers from the Baltimore scene, such as rock god - Billyjack Mast of Miseuphoria, Hunter of The Side Affects, Brent Jones of The Heaviness of the Load, and the awesome Metal Kid!
