Frob - Frob - 1976 - Musikladen

Frob came from Rheda-Wiedenbrück in the east of Westphalia and played instrumental jazz-rock with a progressive touch of frenetic soloing guitars, Sinclair-like keys, and a pulverizing rhythm section, all played with a discernible Canterbury edge. This, their one and only LP is very relaxing and very well played in a straightforward style. It was recorded in winter 1975 / 1976 in Southern France. With Philippe Caillat who then worked as a music teacher (and by now has released quite some jazz records) they had a guitarist of top quality at hand but the other three musicians were his equals in every way. “Frob” was released in 1976 in a number of 1000 copies on the Musikladen label. It was re-released in 2004 on CD. This obscure jazz rock album is very good. If you have any more info about this band, your posts are welcome.
