With his band - Brant Leeper (keys), Nathan Brown (b) and Rena Beavers (dr) - the guitarist, singer and former John Mayall apprentice Coco Montoya has recorded a live album on which he presents himself much more alive than on his studio works. A number where his great influence of Albert Collins, especially on the solos, becomes obvious ("I Got A Mind To Travel"), casual Tex-Mex-Blues ("Hey Senorita"), an emotional ballad ("The One Who Really Loves You"), sexy funkblues ("Don't Go Makin' Plans"), unfortunately some mainstream ("I Want It All Back") and cool shuffle ("My Side Of The Fence") demonstrate how varied a gig with Montoya can be. Solid album that you always like to hear.
