With "Power In The Blood", Dizzy has obviously come on a bit musically as he combines dance grooves with soul, reggae and swing. Old fave "There's Power In The Blood" enters the '90s with a new dance vibe and added extras. There's an infectious, lazy swing beat on "I Feel Your Presence" that somehow reminded me of summer and Kool And The Gang. This album shows a marked maturity not seen on the first, particularly on "He Shed His Blood", a lilting, melodic little gem which really shook my cage! I'm definitely warming to all this and admit to being impressed by the quality of this second opus. It has the feel of warm beaches al sunset, open lop cars and homemade lemonade. Maybe I'm just an old romantic!
