Scope biography
The progressive rock group Scope was founded in Zwolle, The Netherlands in 1971. The band was founded by Henk Zomer (drums) and Rik Elings (keyboards, flute) who knew each other from high school where they played together in a band called Strange Power. Under this name they recorded two singles in 1971, That's the way/Turn me loose and Tenderfoot/Spring. With the addition of Rens Nieuwland (guitar) and Erik Raayman (bass guitar) they became Scope. In the coming years they play a lot throughout The Netherlands and Germany. In 1974 they recorded their debut in Germany for Negram label.

In 1975 Rob Franken (keyboards) joins the band, Raayman leaves the band and joins Medusa, and Elings switches to bass guitar. With this line up they record their second album, also in Germany.

In 1976 drummer Zomer leaves the band and is replaced by Robert Vink for a short time. The next drummer is Roland Zeldenrust. In the same year they see a new bass player, Pablo Nahar. All these changes lead to end of the band in 1976.

Their music is mainly set upon 70's jazz-rock / fusion standards, with reminiscences of Mahavishnu Orchestra, but it also drinks from the fountain of their contemporary Dutch Symphonic Prog peers, like Solution and Focus. In 1982, the group was revived by Rik, Henk, Theo de Jong (b, ex-Taurus) and a succession of guitar players.

3 stars This albums is a strong example of typical Dutch prog jazz fusion from mid-70-s. Musicians all are competent, and musicianship is good if too calculated. I often notice the same moment with Dutch jazz - usually technically perfectly trained musicians play very calculated, cool, a bit soulless music.

Similar situation is with this album. Music is strongly influenced by symphonic prog and classic music. Sound is slightly mellow, and always very optimistic. In fact , by atmosphere they are similar to Focus music of similar period, and guitar sound is a bit influenced by Ian Akkerman.

Possibly, it is good album for lovers of such kind of fusion. For me there are not enough soul inside, even if external musicianship is very competent. Some compositions are too jazzy, or too classical influenced. Or - with too strong salon music feeling.

In all, average jazz fusion album from mid 70-s.

3 stars Formed in Zwolle in 1971,SCOPE were a four-member Jazz-Prog outfit,who was born out of the ashes of the band ''Strange power''.Founding members were drummer Henk Zomer and keyboardist/flutist Rik Elings.Reportedly the band started as a Symphonic rRck group,but soon they switched to a more jazzy progressive style.SCOPE played a lot of gigs in their country and Germany and finally they recorded their self-titled debut for ther Negram Lanel on German ground.

Their style is a combination of Classic Progressive Rock with Canterbury influences and Jazz Rock of the RETURN TO FOREVER school.Guitarist Ren Nieuwland performs fantastically with a variety of tempos,as he was given a lot of space for endless,improvisational and delightful solos,not far from JOHN MCLAUGHLIN's work with the MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA.Elings is also on the top of this performance with his nice electric piano in the vein of CHICK COREA, while he also plays some dominant organ parts in a couple of songs.The funky bass lines belong to talented bassist Erik Raayman,while Zomer is also present with some steady and confident drumming.Parts of the album are characterized by the massive interplays of the members,reminding of their fellows SUPERSISTER and there are also some really dark parts with haunting flutes and slow guitars,where the band comes closer than ever to Classic 70's Progressive Rock.For fans of varied,instrumental, jazzy progressive rock played with inspiration and talent,this is a great musical adventure.Essential for the fans of the afore-mentioned styles.

Prog Reviewer

3 stars This is a pretty good cd but nothing special. I like instrumental cds but this one could have used some vocals. For a fusion cd it just seemed far to average. Its a good cd to listen to for laid back moods or back ground music but nothing innovative in my opinion. Maybe I should give it another listen. I defiantly will in fact, its a very chill cd, just nothing that blows my mind.
