Scope - Scope II CD

SKU 21-SIR 2212
This is the first ever reissue of this very sought after and very good Dutch jazz/rock album from 1974. The band only made two records and both have been some of the most requested items to appear on CD for DECADES!
Unconditionally recommended to fusion fans of the early period of the music.

“In 1973 the band entered the Hamburg studio Maschen to record their debut album "Scope" under the direction of Jochen Petersen. The result was an exciting, varied fusion / jazz rock album, which contained a lot of improvisations and perfectly reflected the craftsmanship of the four musicians. The press was thrilled and SCOPE went back on the streets to present the new album live.
In 1974 bassist Erik Raayman left the band, but the band continued with a surprising plan. Multi-instrumentalist Rik Elings left his place behind the keyboards and took over the bass, while the group added electric keyboardist Rob Franken. A wise decision, because Rob Franken was one of the best and most famous jazz pianists in Holland.
With this line-up, they returned to Studio Maschen in September 1974 to record the follow-up album "Scope II" for WEA. Like the debut, the album is a unique funk / fusion delicacy record, and SCOPE has become a real insider tip of the international jazz rock scene. Despite (or because of) the major deal, large record sales did not happen. After numerous changes in the line-up, the group came to an end in 1976.”
