Scope

SCOPE was a legendary Fusionband and the beginning of the musical career of Rens Newland, the guitarist which moved to Austria in 1977 to join the ORF Big band, later OSTINATO and the Gloria Gaynor Ban, to name a few. 1972, the jazz-rock group SCOPE was founded in Zwolle, The Netherlands, 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, aka Rens Newland) and Erik Raayman (bass guitar) they became SCOPE in 1972. In the coming years they played a lot throughout The Netherlands and Germany. In 1973 they recorded their debut ›SCOPE‹ in Germany (for WEA). In 1974 Rob Franken (keyboards) joined the band, Raayman left the band and Elings switched to bass guitar. With this line up they recorded their second album ›SCOPE II‹, also in Germany. In 1976 drummer Zomer left the band and was replaced by Robert Vink for a short time. The next drummer was Roland Zeldenrust. In the same year they got a new bass player, Pablo Nahar. All these changes led to the end of the band in 1976. Their music is part of the fusion movement of the 70s, with a real own touch, for sure partly inspired by Miles Davis, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, but also by contemporary Dutch Symphonic Progressive bands, like Solution and Focus.
