Blood Sweat & Tears & The Ludlow Garage



It’s been more than four 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. The last member to leave the band
from the first album in 1977. 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.

Colomby also describes the instrumental players chosen for Blood,
Sweat & Tears in glowing terms. “This band, man for man, pound for
pound, is better than the first version of B, S & T. Without a doubt,
they’re a ridiculously talented bunch. The drummer Dylan Elsie is
better than I am, or was.”

Strong praise, coming from a musician/producer/manager who knows
a winner when he sees it. Colomby’s resume includes initiating
significant career achievements for Jaco Pastorious, the Jacksons and
Harry Connick Jr among others. As well as his management and
production of trumpeter Chris Botti – currently one of America’s most
successful instrumentalists and winner of the 2013 Grammy for “Best
Instrumental Pop Album.”

“The first version of B, S &T,” adds Colomby, “was designed to
introduce jazz to pop music. That was my passion… and still is.”

Towards that end, Blood, Sweat & Tears will perform their hits with
spirit and enthusiasm, as if it was their first performance of those
songs. The band will also introduce some new elements into every
performance, including a segment devoted to “Songs We Wish We Had
Recorded,” done in classic B,S & T style.

Bobby Colomby’s enthusiastic comments underscore his excitement
about the future. The arrival of this latest version of Blood, Sweat &
Tears is the next chapter in a musical tale that stretches from the
creativity and turbulence of the late ‘60s to the swiftly changing world
of the 21st Century. The next invigorating phase in the continuing
adventures of B, S & T is about to begin.

Enjoy the show ;-))
