Remastered reissue of this killer album. A unique psychedelic kraut/jazz rock/avant album, originally released in 1976, sees a welcome reissue. Formed in 1973 in the German town of Rheda-Wiedenbruck, Frob also included French jazz-fusion guitar player Philippe Caillat in its line-up. The album is shadow-strafing suite of spidery rhythms and inquisitive jazz gestures, effortlessly binding avant instrumental dexterity with cool blue harmolodic sentiment in a timeless style that could feasibly be dated to any point between the 70s heyday of jazz-fusion and avant-progressive. It’s both highly complex and entirely accessible - in the most thought provoking, evocative way. Frob navigates webs of sound as structurally fascinating as a spider’s web or a deep space image of a distant constellation, seemingly moving on eight legs along steep vertical and fast-flowing horizontal axes with a shocking grasp of precision and pointillism that will leave new listeners to his work scratching their heads, wondering how to programme such complex percussion electronically. Killer.
“A very cohesive album and among the best recommendations from Germany kraut-jazz underground next to the challenging ex-Magma, Ibliss and the neo-clas-sical Tetragon, track it down immediately!“ (Prog Archives)
