Early life and family
Colomby played on Blood, Sweat & Tears' 1968 self-titled album, a critical and commercial hit which won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. After many changes in the group he became (in the end) the de facto owner of the Blood Sweat & Tears name.
Colomby produced jazz bass virtuoso Jaco Pastorius' first solo album; The Jacksons' comeback album Destiny; Chris Botti's albums December, When I Fall in Love, To Love Again and Italia; Paula Cole's album Courage and Jeff Lorber's album He Had a Hat.
For a few years in the late 1980s Bobby Colomby was a reporter for the television programs Entertainment Tonight and "The CBS Morning Program." He also hosted "In Person from the Palace".
Colomby maintains ownership of the "Blood, Sweat & Tears" band name and, although he no longer plays with the band, he still manages and oversees a tribute band that performs under that name.
