Scope - II (1974)


























Nice dutch jazz rock album by Scope band released in 1974 for Atlantic records.
This group recorded only 2 albums, first one was more oriented to progressive rock music.
This one is a good blend of jazz rock effects with a really solid rhytmic section and interesting pieces and solos.

Musicians:
Rick Elings: fender bas guitar, hammond organ, arp synthetizer, grand piano, gemeinhart flute - Rob Franken: fender rhodes, piano, arp odiseey synthetizer - Rens Nieuwland: guitar, 12 string guitar - Henk Zomer: drums

Hey Pollux, great to see ya.
Fantastic album you posted here, really LOVE Scope. I'm in touch with the drummer Henk Zomer and will get copies of his Scope cd's.
He's also working on an official release of both Scope albums.
