An unexpected find on Amazon .. I downloaded the MP3 version, but it also exists on a physical CD, and is sold via other online outlets. 

The music is intricate, tasteful and well-payed; it flows smoothly throughout the 74 minutes of the CD, making it a really pleasurable listen. People who like florid fusion a la earlier Return to Forever or Weather Report will enjoy this album a lot. 

Unfortunately, the information I could find on the Net was sparse; this place seems to be the original source ... I am only guessing:

The only track by Bozon I found on YouTube is here below (most of the YouTube search results for Bozon+Cold+Fusion are about abstruse stuff like antigravity, Higgs bozons and such)

Info from facebook:" rel="nofollow -
"Bozon began in the late seventies forging a unique form of jazz-rock in a rehearsal studio (”the space”) behind the Dharma Submarine Shop near the nexus of Market and Van Ness streets in San Francisco. Countless long days and late nights were spent working on complex original compositions that often featured an anarchic sense of humor a...nd “odd” time signatures (with no regard, indeed a disdain for the monotony of the four-four disco beat so prevalent at the time). The diversity of the players’ backgrounds brought a large palette of influences into the mix. Sometimes, this created an overly complicated gumbo of confusion (both for the players and listeners). However, when things did go right, the results could be surprising and sublime. Bozon played a modest succession of rather eccentric parties and gigs, but it was hard to duplicate their sound out of the space. As disco gave way to punk, the handwriting was easy enough to read. The group disbanded in late 1980/early 1981."
