Blood, Sweat & Tears

Pioneers of brash and exciting jazz rock, this American band caused a sensation when theymade their debut in 1969. In an age dominated by four-piece guitar groups, Blood, Sweat & Tears seemed revolutionary with their use of a powerful brass section sparked by dynamic drummer Bobby Colomby.The group celebrated all aspects of contemporary music, playing arran-gements of Traffic tunes like ‘Smiling Phases’ while exploring classical themes and jazz tunes like Billie Holiday’s ‘God Bless The Child’. Soulful Canadian born singer David Clayton-Thomas roars through ‘More And More’ and ‘Spinning Wheel’, among the highlights of a seminal, ground-breaking album.
