"Warsaw Summer Jazz Days '98" is a live album by Allan Holdsworth, released posthumously in 2019. It was released as CD + DVD set. This performance features Allan playing with the late Dave Carpenter on bass and Gary Novak on drums, who also contributes to the liner notes for this release. The performance of Warsaw Summer Jazz Days '98 was recorded, filmed, and originally aired on Polish Television. The sound of both the audio and video was digitally re-mastered from the original tapes.

The full TV broadcast footage was sadly lost from Polish TV archives. The DVD contains a shorter version that comes from a rebroadcast, as well as "bonus footage" that is in fact "bootlegged" off-air recordings that look like they are culled from VHS recordings. The full audio was found in the archives, however, and the bonus footage has been synced up to the re-mastered audio. Take note that the running order of the DVD has been changed, as the surviving broadcast version is presented first, and the bonus features second.
