Song of the Day: Blood Sweat & Tears, “God Bless The Child”

Trombonist Jerry Hyman, who played with Blood Sweat & Tears on their second and third albums (1969’s Blood Sweat & Tears, 1970’s Blood Sweat & Tears 3), was born on this day in 1947. Jerry changed careers after leaving BS&T, becoming a chiropractor. "God Bless The Child," written by Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog, was on their second album.

    1. They’re still going, despite the fact that none of the original members are still there. A few of them have joined the Eternal Jam Session.. . It’s possible that Jerry was already studying chiropractic when he joined BS&T (If I’ve done my calculations right, he was in his early 20’s when he was in the band), or maybe he left specifically to study it. Who knows?
