I am listening these days the album "Blood, Sweat and tears". I LOVE IT !!! It's one of my all-time-favourites. It's not prog, but the songs have constat rhythm changes from soul to jazz, blues, latin jazz... and so on. Great musicians also! A very impressive album, those guys were ahead of their time, 1968....

Progressive for sure: then called rock jazz or brass rock. Simply the hybrid of rock, jazz, blues would have been the creditials necessary for progressive music. And as I've written elsewhere on PA, brass rock is/was a sub-division of jazz rock fusion (perhaps more rock than jazz - but the line-up did include some well known jazz musicians, e.g. Lew Soloff), tself a sub-division of prog rock.

Maybe you're right, Dick, or proto-prog maybe?

"Blood Sweat & Tears" was the first record that I had to listen more than twice to understand and like it. I was listening mostly to the Beatles then (at the age of 12 or so).

I will try to get their first record, riverking, since many people tells me it's their best. I can't beleive it can be better than the second one!!

I've only heard their first two albums along with a handful of other tracks. My dad is a huge fan of horn rock, so I got to see them in concert a few years ago. Very entertaining. For the second half of the show, they were backed by a full orchestra.

One of the best jazz-rock bands of that period.

Which is their most progressive release???

"Mirror Image" (1974) IMO.

Blood Sweat and Tears - 3 has many good songs
and believe it or not some ELP like moments about
1970, Al Kooper and David Clayton Thomas were
true innovators.

Said it before, I have no problems with that - except we would get into a lot of dross from Chicago wrt their later catalogue.  And add to your list Chase, Heaven, Satisfaction, Ides Of March(?), Tower Of Power, Cold Blood and as we shift toward jazz funk fusion end of brass rock/funk, add AWB, Dreams, Brecker Brothers............................................. Funkadelic, Kelvynator and even Earth Fire & Wind*

 

*Actually check out the recent DVD release of Chicago & Earth Fire & Wind In Concert, for both some pleasant surprises, and some teeth grinding moments
