Cold Cold Feeling is the third CD from Truman's Ridge. Cold Cold Feeling contains 7 original songs and 7 cover versions of classic Bluegrass Songs. Two new instrumental numbers, covers of Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, and Bob Dylan, bluegrass “love” songs, 4 gospel numbers, and even some light “uneasy” listening make this a "must-have"recording.
Bluegrass - Chicago Style!
Put a dozen traditional bluegrass bands in a row: you'll have 11 apples (all good but all similar) and 1 orange (still good but different) We are the orange. Single vocal mic, well dressed, fast paced, with all the excitement of the early days in our covers and our original material.
"Truman's Ridge harmonies are varied, at times reminiscent of the early brother bands, and at other times showing a strong rural-gospel influence in the 3 and 4 part vocals. The lead vocals are always strong. Instrumentally the band continues to show the influence of midwestern string band and Chicago jazz and blues on its interpretation of traditional bluegrass arrangements. The rock-solid beat of the guitar and bass compliment the driving rhythm of the banjo and the compelling mandolin lead breaks. Fiddle and harmonica are also featured on some songs. Truman’s Ridge offers an exciting blend of the familiar and the unique."
