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, beat out the Beatles Abbey Road for Grammy Album of the Year, and produced three major hit singles “You Made Me So Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” “And When I Die.”
But now Colomby is looking for much more as he develops the new Blood Sweat & Tears into a contemporary voice, one that reaches beyond a single, nostalgic audience. “I no longer want to target just one generation,” he says. “That would be a mistake.”
Will the new Blood, Sweat & Tears have any of the original members?
“Not a chance,” says Colomby. “When you’re at a Yankee game you do not expect to see Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. They’re not going to be there. But what you will see is a top-notch brand, the pinstripes, and the best possible combination of players on the field to represent the Yankee legend. So that when the Yankees play magnificently and win, no one's going to say, “Where’s the Bambino: Where’s Mickey Mantle? So, too, with the new Blood, Sweat & Tears.
