Bruford Levin Upper Extremities (B.L.U.E.), a group including bassist Tony Levin, Bill Bruford on drums, David Torn on guitar and Chris Botti on trumpet, formed after recording Torn’s 1987 Cloud About Mercury release.
B.L.U.E.’s 1999 release, Bruford Levin Upper Extremities, out of print for some time, is being re-released today.
Here’s about the only video you’ll find of the group, from a 1998 webcast of B.L.U.E.’s House of Blues in Cobalt Canyons:
