Lydia Pense And Cold Blood - Live Blood (2008 us, superb blues jazz funky brass rock)



Live Blood was recorded at the Sunbanks Music Festival in Washington State, and captures the band in their most natural of habitats: on stage and smokin. Live Blood is what Cold Blood fans have been waiting forlightning in a bottle, laid down by a tight six-piece band, fronted by the incomparable Ms. Pense. Live Blood stays true to the throbbing, thumping, horn-laced tunes for which the band has come to be known.

Lydia’s vocals are right-on and she’s sounding  as good as she ever has.  Needless to say Cold  Blood’s performance is all about funk and soul, capturing the magic  from the beginning of this record with the opening  killer version  of ‘I Just Want To Make Love To You", the 13 minutes "Funky On My Back" is a remarkable jam trip with guitar blasts, dymanic vocals and wind instruments..
