The double CD/DVD set shows the great guitarist live at the Leverkusener Jazztage on November 9, 2010, 13 years after his triumphant performance at the Jazztage 1997. The package offers audio and visual versions of the 10-song set, which was recorded and filmed in high definition for German television. The already high-quality audio and video recordings were digitally remastered from the original tapes.

During this gig, Holdsworth was joined by acclaimed drummer and longtime collaborator Chad Wackerman and bassist Ernest Tibbs. The bassist also wrote the liner notes for the set based on his personal memories of performing with Holdsworth.

The collaboration with Holdsworth, however, presented Tibbs, who is known for his work with a variety of artists from Andy Summers and David Benoit to Dionne Warwick and Lee Ritenour, with some special challenges. "When you played in Allan's trio, you didn't have a pianist or keyboardist to rely on, so you had to be able to cover and be the driving force," Tibbs says. "Coming from R&B, I thought this would be a great experience for me. I took it as a challenge, and when I made it, it felt great."

As a guitarist of a guitarist, Holdsworth's music and legacy have been embraced over the years by a who's who of axe-wielders, from Eddie Van Halen and Joe Satriani to Frank Zappa and Tom Morello. It was Van Halen who brought the British-born Holdsworth to the attention of Warner Bros. Records. Records drew attention, while Zappa once called him "one of the most interesting guitarists on the planet".
