It’s been five decades since drummer/producer Bobby Colomby and friends assembled the first group to successfully blend rock and jazz into a genre crossing sound and style. So successfully in fact, that the band’s second album, Blood, Sweat & Tears, topped the Billboard charts for many weeks and beat out the Beatles’ Abbey Road for the prestigious Album of the Year Grammy award. That album produced three major hit singles: “You Made me so Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” and “And When I Die.” BS&T has won 3 Grammy’s and nominated over 10 times. But now Colomby is looking for much more as he develops Blood Sweat & Tears into a contemporary voice, one that reaches beyond a single, nostalgic audience. “I no longer want to target just one generation. That would be a mistake. With this updated version, I want this band to gain recognition with a wider audience. I want people of all ages to experience what this music has to offer. Will Blood, Sweat & Tears have any of the original members? “Not a chance,” says Colomby, who last performed with BS&T in 1976. I think of this band like baseball’s Yankees. “When you’re at a Yankee game you’re not going to see Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle or Lou Gehrig. What you do come to expect is a team of top-notch players upholding a tradition of winning. That’s the Yankee legacy. It what people expect from BS&T as well… brilliant musicians, singers, songs and arrangements. It has been 50 years since the release of the ground breaking "Child is Father to the Man” Album and the band has never looked back. To this day BS&T has the greatest musicians in the world over 200 talented musicians and singers have passed through the doors of this musical institution. Many have gone on to careers of their own the likes of Randy Brecker, Jaco Pastorius, Joe Henderson, Lew Soloff, Lou Marini Jr, Mike Stern, Tom Malone, Dave Bargeron and many many more. Blood Sweat & Tears was the first All Star Band and has delivered since 1969 to today. The current line-up is sure to prove the critics right that Blood Sweat & Tears is one of the Greatest Touring bands out there today.
