Colosseum is one of the pivotal progressive bands that emerged in the second part of the 60's. In 1968 the founding members were drummer Jon Hiseman, tenor sax-player Dick Heckstall-Smith and bass player Tony Reeves, later joined by Dave Greenslade (keyboards), Clem Clempson (guitar), Chris Farlowe (vocals) and Mark Clarke (2), who replaced Tony Reeves.
Colosseum made three studio albums: "Those Who Are To Die We Salute You" and "Valentyne Suite" (both from ’69) and "Daughter Of Time" (’70).
The music is a progressive mix of several styles (rock, jazz, blues) with lots of sensational solos and captivating interplay.
In ’71 the band released their highly acclaimed live album "Colosseum live", a proove of their great skills on stage but also showing that at some moments the compositions sounded a bit too stretched.
After Colosseum was disbanded in ’71, most of these members formed or joined known groups like Humble Pie (Clem Clempson), Atomic Rooster (Chris Farlowe), Greenslade (Dave Greenslade re-united with Tony Reeves) and Colosseum II (founded by Jon Hiseman).
The band was reunited in 1994 and is still active until to date.
