The Reunion Concerts 1994

The more time that passed from the day in November 1971 that Jazz-rock pioneers Colosseum split up, the less likely it seemed that they would ever work together again. However, more than 40 years down the line, Jon Hiseman, Chris Farlowe, Clem Clempson, Dave Greenslade and Mark Clarke were still going strong. Tragically, Saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith succumbed to an 18 month long battle with ill heath and died at the end of 2004. Jon’s long time wife and internationally-renowned saxophonist Barbara Thompson stepped into his shoes through his long ordeal and has now become a permanent member. Since the death of legendary drummer Jon Hiseman in 2018, Colosseum has reformed to play gigs and festivals throughout Europe.Great interest in the re-mastered CD releases of their original albums helped persuade drummer Hiseman to give the nod for the return of Colosseum. Following a one off sold out reunion festival date in June 94 they embarked on a 60-date 1995 European tour and the release of another live CD and DVD (“Colosseum LiveS -The Reunion Concerts 1994”) featuring all the Colosseum favourites, all executed in a manner which showed they had lost none of their fire and energy."This is a glorious recording of jazz-rock ensemble playing of the very best quality. Every single musician on this record shines individually while generously supporting the other in the band. The only downside is that this makes me sad I didn't seen Colosseum live a lot more often."
