Boomkat Product Review:
Before they evolved into cult Belgian prog outfit COS, Daniel Schell's band was a bizarre jazz fusion outfit known as Classroom. Finders Keepers has exhumed this obscenely rare material and released it on vinyl for the first time.
Guitarist/flautist Schnell was something of a visionary. He established Classroom in the late '60s, but good luck finding the material. Better known was his run as COS, a jazzy prog act that emerged from the ashes of Classroom and developed the Canterbury sound of acts like Soft Machine and Caravan. When they recorded this self-titled album they were still making jerky Euro jazz, with glittery instrumentation and impressive vocals from Schnell's wife Pascale Son. This ain't an easy ride by any means, but it's another oddity that deserves to be heard - thanks to Finders Keepers yet again for doing the heavy lifting.
