David Clayton-Thomas – Combo

COMBO is a labour of love for singer David Clayton-Thomas. A return to his roots, singing jazz and blues with a small combo in the jazz clubs of Toronto back in the 60’s. With the big brassy sound of Blood Sweat & Tears now long behind him, the singer pares his band down to a bare minimum. Relying instead on a quintet of Canada’s top jazz musicians to showcase that unmistakable voice.
