Blue Blood is rounded out by the raspy but strong voice of Toshi, progressive tendencies (the 11-plus minute "Rose of Pain" has more ambition than a young politicians seminar), and a handful of good, if not entirely original, riffs. Although parts of the record may be seen as pompous or goofy, the album generally packs enough skill and enthusiasm to deliver the goods on par with its best genre associates, even if clearly following in their footsteps.

Yeah, I love you so much. I don't need to resist. I don't need to exist. Dripping blue blood from the wrist. And all the neighbors get pissed when I come home. Blue Blood Blues" lyrics provided for educational purposes and personal use only.
For almost a decade, guitarist James Blood Ulmer has been courting the blues as a deeper shade of black with his trademark harmolodic jazz-funk expressionism. In addition, Ulmer's music has come to rely increasingly as much on riffing as it does on improvisation. The results have been mixed; Ulmer is his own worst enemy by not knowing what to leave off a record.
