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.”
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 1975. 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.
Blood Sweat & Tears was the first allstar band and carries on that tradition to todays band. The best musicions in the world and yes thats a bold statement that the band can back up.
New Lead singer Keith Paluso you may remember Keith from "The Voice" 2018 season. Critics agree that Keith is the best singer since David Clayton-Thomas and thats a big statment.......Another find was Drummer Dylan Elise, Colomby found Elise on You Tube playing on the streets of New Zealand. Colomby tracked the young drummer down and offered him a job on the spot.
