Fred Lipsius

Because of Al Gomes of Big Noise's strategic and publicity efforts, Fred Lipsius,
co-founder of the seminal iconic jazz-rock group Blood, Sweat & Tears, was placed on the Official Ballot for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards by The Recording Academy for Best Pop Solo Performance for his single 'That Inside Feeling,' Best Improvised Jazz Solo for 'Bluesy Hues,' and Best Jazz Instrumental Album for 'Rhythm, Catch 4.'

Al Gomes: 'I've been friends with Fred Lipsius since 2014. We were introduced to each other by the great jazz guitarist Gerry Beaudoin.

I've always been very proud of my professional association with Fred and his legacy - his two-time Grammy Award-winning ground-breaking work with Blood, Sweat & Tears, 9 Gold Records, his appearance with the band at the legendary Woodstock Music Festival - preceded, however, six weeks prior to that as part of an even more amazing musical line-up and performance at the Newport Jazz Festival, where even Miles Davis was blown away by the new generation of talent in Newport, RI in July of 1969.

Myself and my partner Connie Watrous are working to commemorate that sacred spot in Newport where Blood, Sweat & Tears made an amazing impression on all who attended - a spot where Louis Armstrong gave his last performance, and where Bob Dylan 'went electric' in 1965.

When Fred and I first collaborated on a career strategy, he played me a whole range of new music, and the piece I was most taken with was 'That Inside Feeling.' 'That's the single,' I said to him, 'That's the one.' And he said, as only Fred could say giving his approval, 'I read about you - you know what you're doing.' Well, it turned out it was a good decision, and I'm grateful to him for taking my direction. And The Recording Academy agreed, placing the track on their Official Ballot for The Grammy Awards, along with his album 'Rhythm, Catch 4.'

I look forward to more of our on-going friendship, and continuing admiration for each other as musical colleagues, historians, and true believers. I'm thrilled to be a part of his musical story!'
