Lydia Pense and Cold Blood debuted when the historic Fillmore was at its peak, and owner Bill Graham immediately signed them to his new record label. During the span of six albums, they forged their own specific brand of funk/soul and R&B, along with Tower Of Power, and it became known as East Bay Grease. Lydia will be accompanied by members of Cold Blood – Steve Dunne on guitar, Evan Palmerston on bass, T Moran on drums, Rich Armstrong on trumpet, and Steve Salinas on keys. They’ll play Lydia’s signature songs as well as new music from their recent release, Soul Of The Gypsy.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
